About Firestone:

AMERICAN TIRES. GLOBAL PROGRESS.

Becoming an icon of American agricultural history is not an easy task. In the case of Firestone, it stretches back to the day in 1945 when the Firestone tire plant in Des Moines, lowa began to produce tires for the U.S. military. Today, that story continues as our Des Moines plant produces 600,000 tires every year that are shipped to 120 countries. It is a crucial provider to agriculture, forestry and construction industries around the world. But at no point have we ever lost sight of our primary focus - the American Farmer.

 

DES MOINES, IOWA - THE HOME OF FIRESTONE AG

Nearly 1,200 people work in our Des Moines plant. Some of them represent the fourth or fifth generation of their families to work in this 105-acre facility, which produces over 850,000 pounds of rubber every day. This makes us the #1 agricultural tire facility in the United States, and our worker´s contribution to American agriculture beyond question.
