Michelin suspends manufacturing in Russia and exports to Russia

The Michelin Group has said it is suspending its industrial activity in Russia, as well as its exports to the country.

Michelin’s Davydovo plant, located just east of Moscow, employs about 750 people and manufactures passenger car tyres and retreaded truck tyres, mainly for the local market.

Michelin said its priority is to support all of its employees who are impacted by Russia’s war on Ukraine, including its Michelin Russia employees.

“The Group remains fully mobilised and will continue to adapt its decisions as the situation evolves,” it added.
