Firestone Industrial Products Expands Dyersburg Manufacturing Facility

Firestone Industrial Products invests $8.9 million to expand its Dyersburg facility, creating 41 jobs.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter and Firestone Industrial Products officials announced today the company will invest $8.9 million to expand manufacturing and distribution at its Firestone Airide facility in Dyersburg.

Firestone Airide, a division of Firestone Industrial Products headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, constructed a new facility at 1901 Sylvan Road, which will house 41 new jobs upon completion of the project. The expansion will comprise a warehouse center and small box kitting operation to further enhance the company’s air spring production and distribution worldwide.

Firestone has more than 80 years of experience designing and manufacturing air springs and related products to eliminate vibration across the automotive, heavy-duty and off-highway segments and will collaboratively integrate tire and air spring sensing technologies to create a unique value proposition for our partners through performance, comfort and sustainable solutions.

Since 2020, TNECD has supported 25 economic development projects in the Northwest Tennessee region, resulting in approximately 1,900 job commitments and $610 million in capital investment.

“With its strategic location and increased capability, the new distribution center will enable us to shorten time-to-market to meet customer demands while further optimizing our operations. We have a vital role to play in the transformation of mobility created by advanced electric vehicles and supporting technologies, such as our Firestone air springs,” said Firestone Airide President Justin Monaghan.
