The students—who just finished studying about tires, steering and suspension in vehicles—enjoyed seeing the manufacturing process, Giti said.
"We were thrilled to welcome students and community guests to our Richburg plant to showcase our highly automated manufacturing plant, latest manufacturing technology and skilled workforce, as well as experience the performance of GT Radial tires made in Richburg," Julianto Djajadi, executive vice president for business operations for Giti Tire USA., said. "Our South Carolina plant is a special place with special people and many stories to tell. We hope this visit inspired the next generation of engineers and manufacturers in the local community."
Giti also partners with the Chester County School District to help students develop valuable STEAM (science, technology, engineer, arts and mathematics) skills through Giti Math & Science clubs in schools across the area. The clubs meet several times throughout the year, culminating with an annual interscholastic contest.
