CHARLES CITY – Governor Terry Branstad will attend the Mitas Tire grand opening in Charles City on Thursday, April 26. The event begins at 10 a.m. The plant is located at 1200 Rove Avenue in Charles City.

The new tire plant is about $51 million investment by the Czech company and the first Mitas Tires plant in North America.

“Charles City has given the word ‘tractor’ to the world,” project director Vladimir Dusanek said. “In early 2012, Charles City will start giving a better choice of tractor tires to the U.S. farmer. Mitas will become the third U.S.-based producer of radial agricultural tires.”

“The reason for building the new tire factory in Iowa is the proximity to original equipment manufacturers such as Case IH,” Dusanek said. In summer, Mitas started hiring workers in Iowa. In September, the first group of its U.S. employees will undergo training in the Czech Republic.

The company may still be hiring. Visit this page for more information.
