Clarksville, Tenn. (Feb. 20, 2024) — Clayco, a full-service, turnkey real estate development, architecture, engineering and construction firm, announced its partnership with Hankook Tire to build the company’s expansion at the Tennessee Plant in Clarksville. The expansion will feature 2.2 million square feet of state-of-the-art facilities.

The large-scale project encompasses site enhancements, utility installations and intricate paving. It involves deep foundations, concrete slabs and specialized equipment pits, culminating in the construction of a multistory structural steel Mixing Building. The facility also includes ASRS mat foundations, IMP exterior, CMU-IMP interior walls, TPO roofing, and various other architectural features.

This significant investment includes the previously planned Phase 2 expansion, which aims to double the production capacity of Hankook’s passenger car and light truck (PC/LT) tires along with a Phase 3 expansion that will mark the company’s first U.S. production of Truck Bus and Radial (TBR) tires.

The Phase 3 expansion will contribute to the local economy by generating 400 additional jobs, bringing the total number of new jobs to 1,200 in the Clarksville area. This investment underscores Hankook Tire’s commitment to enhancing its presence in the U.S. and meeting the increasing demand for its high-quality tires.

Clayco will be supported by Lamar Johnson Collaborative for architectural services while ICT Thomasson will handle the MEP components. Tucker Jones will oversee the structural aspects, and TTL will be responsible for the civil engineering aspects.
