Lawton Goodyear plant breaks ground

The Lawton Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. Plant broke ground Tuesday afternoon on the plant’s 16th equipment modernization project since the plant was built in 1979.

The new project, the addition of an advanced mixer, will be built on the west side of the plant. Construction is expected to start this month and be completed early next year.

The project will allow the Lawton Goodyear plant to improve its mixing capacity and to meet increasingly stringent performance requirements for emerging technologies like electric and autonomous vehicles, said Lester Brooks, manufacturing director of the local plant.
