LUXEMBOURG—Goodyear has opened a new tire test laboratory at its innovation center in Luxembourg, the company announced April 26.
The facility houses technology for testing car, light truck and commercial truck tires.
"Goodyear's strategy is founded on producing high-quality, innovative products as the shift to more complex, high-value added tires continues to accelerate," said Jean Claude Kihn, Goodyear's president for Europe, Middle East and Africa during the opening ceremony.
The investment, he added, will help Goodyear meet "the exacting demands" of its customers while strengthening its presence in Luxembourg.
