Titan International today announced the completion of the sale of its Brownsville, Texas, facility. The sale was completed in November to an affiliate of Phoenix Investors, a national private commercial real estate firm headquartered in Milwaukee, Wis.
Originally built in 1997 for tire manufacturing, the plant totals approximately one million square feet on 108 acres. Titan ended production of tires in 2003 and most recently the facility has been leased to multiple tenants.
"We have highlighted the sale of non-core assets as an important initiative throughout 2020 and the sale of this facility was certainly a part of that process," stated Paul Reitz, president and CEO. "This sale, along with the completion of other smaller transactions, will put us within the $16-$20 million range for non-core asset sales expected to be completed during the fourth quarter as highlighted during our most recent earnings release. This transaction further strengthens our balance sheet and helps position us for future growth as we continue to see higher demand levels for our products heading into 2021."
