NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Nokian Tyres P.L.C. has opened its North American headquarters office in Nashville, housing the company's sales, customer service, IT, logistics and marketing teams.
As many as 30 employees will work from the renovated facility, which has around 6,000 square feet of space and features an open-concept work environment. Several employees chose to move to Nashville, while others remain at the Finnish tire maker's previous North American headquarters in Colchester, Vt., which continues to serve as an office and distribution warehouse.
Mark Earl, senior vice president, Americas, said employees have received a "warm welcome" in the Volunteer state.
"We are pleased to be a member of the Nashville and Tennessee business communities, and we look forward to deepening relationships here and continuing our successful growth," he said.
Nokian, which emphasizes its employees' health and well-being at its locations, said the workspace concept fosters collaboration and allows employees to work where they feel most comfortable, from couches and tables to ergonomic, adjustable-height desks.
