Nokian Tyres Adapts Production of Passenger Car Tires at Its Factory In Nokia, Finland

The ongoing political strikes affecting ports and transportation in Finland has led to Nokian Tyres’ inventories of tires filling up, as the company is unable to deliver tires to its customers. Consequently, Nokian Tyres will adapt production at the Nokia passenger car tire factory in Finland for at least two weeks, based on the current information.

Nokian Tyres plc has today March 22, 2024, commenced and concluded change negotiations concerning all its production employees at the Nokia passenger car tire factory, altogether 350 people. The negotiations concerned temporary adaptation of capacity to current and predictable market situation. Based on the negotiations the production employees can be laid off due to financial and production related reasons for a maximum period of 90 days.

Due to the strikes in Finland, the passenger car tire production employees will be laid-off during March 26. – April 9, 2024. Production of heavy tires will continue in Nokia as normal.
