Clayco Awarded Hankook Tire Expansion Project in Clarksville, Tennessee

CLARKSVILLE, TN — Clayco, a full-service, turnkey real estate development, architecture, engineering, and construction firm, announces its partnership with Hankook Tire to build the company’s expansion at the Tennessee Plant in Clarksville. The expansion will feature 2.2 million square feet of facilities for tire manufacturing and technological innovation.

The large-scale project encompasses site enhancements, utility installations, and intricate paving. It involves deep foundations, concrete slabs, and specialized equipment pits, culminating in the construction of a multistory structural steel Mixing Building. The facility also includes ASRS mat foundations, IMP exterior, CMU-IMP interior walls, TPO roofing, and various other architectural features.

This investment includes the previously planned Phase 2 expansion, which aims to double the production capacity of Hankook’s passenger car and light truck tires along with a Phase 3 expansion that will mark the company’s first U.S. production of Truck Bus and Radial tires.

The Phase 3 expansion will contribute to the local economy by generating 400 additional jobs, bringing the total number of new jobs to 1,200 in the Clarksville area. This investment underscores Hankook Tire’s commitment to enhancing its presence in the United States and meeting the increasing demand for its tires.

“Clayco is honored to be selected as the contractor for this transformative project after handling the pre-construction work in which we provided innovative cost solutions and drove design,” said Anthony Johnson, President of Clayco’s Industrial Business Unit. “We are proud to come alongside Hankook Tire to not only enhance the company’s production capabilities, but also create jobs and contribute to the economic growth of the Clarksville area.”
