Building Tire Manufacturing Plants

Building Tire Manufacturing Plants

Building Tire Manufacturing Facilities

Many of us know that tires play a major role in driving the US economy.   According to the Statistic Portal, in 2018, there were about 227.5 million licensed drivers in the United States, and tire sales are showing no signs of slowing down with a 5.9% increase since 2016.

KBD Group is proud to play a great role in helping the economy by providing design/build services for major tire companies around the United States. Over the past 10 years, KBD has built more than 15 million square feet of automotive-related manufacturing facilities, totaling $589+ million in investment. Of these projects, KBD has designed or constructed 17 tire manufacturing facilities totaling over 9 million square feet.

Senior Vice President
KBD’s Jim Goodwin, Vice President, and Regional Operations Manager are considered an expert in the planning, design, and construction of tire manufacturing plants and is sought after by leaders in the industry.   Goodwin has been heavily involved with the execution and construction of many tire projects since 2008.   This experience allows him to fully understand the evolution of the tire manufacturing market. According to Goodwin, “We are seeing an increase in tire manufacturers wanting to expand or build a new tire plant.”   He continues, “With the rise of technology, clients are adding more automation and upgrades to modify their processing equipment.   This is causing a change in the way we construct the building structure and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing infrastructure.   Because of this understanding, we have become more efficient in the execution of building tire plants.”

Goodwin explains the effect of this increase on KBD:

“Having been a part of multiple tire plant projects over the years, we have learned how to improve the process and become more efficient.   We then apply this knowledge to our next planning process, and this greatly helps improve the way we complete the projects, and get plants operational in an expedited and smooth process.”

Additionally, Goodwin shares his insight regarding the company’s success with Expansion Projects:
“With expansion work, we learned to plan and seek-out critical details early in the design process.   Seeking out these details allows us to identify issues which may cause a delay in the rest of the project if not dealt with early in the process.   Inexperienced teams may see this as work to be coordinated in the field, but this mindset leads to complication and delays in the process.”

As tire manufacturers continue to expand in an effort to meet the demands of their customers and continued innovations in technology, KBD stands ready to help by providing the highest quality service to clients so they may maximize their business goals.   Having provided design/build services for major tire manufacturers across the United States, KBD is proud to consider themselves tire manufacturing experts.
