Quincy, Ill. — Titan International, manufacturer of Titan Tires, Titan Wheels and Goodyear Farm Tires, has announced it will keep its U.S. manufacturing facilities operating as normal in order to support the food and agriculture industry, which the federal government has deemed critical to the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to practicing social distancing and preventative measures to reduce the spread of germs within its facilities, the company remains dedicated to upholding its own internal safety and cleanliness protocols. Titan is taking additional precautions as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and local governments.

The Titan facilities maintaining normal operations are in Des Moines, Iowa; Freeport and Quincy, Ill.; Bryan, Ohio; Jefferson, Ga.; and Union City, Tenn.

“Currently, we are not experiencing infrastructure or supply chain issues that could impact the fulfillment of customer orders in the U.S." said Paul Reitz, Titan president and CEO. "We continue to monitor this extremely fluid and unprecedented situation and will keep our customers and dealers informed of any updates or changes.”

“Titan's leadership team is meeting continuously to appropriately respond to this pandemic as it evolves, and our COVID-19 response team is meeting multiple times a day to monitor the situation and execute plans that will continue to keep our employees safe and help our teams adjust accordingly without impacting production plans,” Reitz said.
