Policies We Support

Our SC Footprint 

We're proud of our strong tire manufacturing footprint in South Carolina. We have 20 locations across the state. Our locations represent corporate headquarters, factories, research centers, test tracks, and distribution centers. We employ nearly 13,000 employees in SC and indirectly create jobs for vendors, suppliers, and tire dealers who support our operations.   

Our Performance

South Carolina leads the country in tire builder jobs, tire production, and tire exports. We are constantly researching and innovating to improve safety, tire quality, and sustainability. We've invested billions in the state, and we're passionate about growing and advancing the tire industry here. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve as the unified voice for the tire manufacturing industry in the state. Our industry has become one of the largest in South Carolina, representing enormous long term investments for our respective companies. The Tire Council was established to enable our companies to work proactively together to advocate for sound public policies that will impact our businesses and employees.
