In the UK, the Michelin Tyre Company Ltd was incorporated on 11 May 1905 and is now, more than one hundred years later involved in many activities not just tyre making, from tyre industry training to economic development and publishing. When the Michelin Tyre Company Ltd was incorporated in 1905 it started a journey that has lasted over one hundred years. A journey that has had many twists and turns and more than a few surprises.
Michelin's UK head office and commercial headquarters is in Stoke-on-Trent with tyre factories in Ballymena (bus and truck tyres) and Dundee (car tyres) as well as a truck tyre retreading factory in Stoke-on-Trent. Our Maps and Guides division, publishers of the famous Michelin Guide is located in Watford.
Michelin operates a tyre industry training centre: MTC which is located near to the Stoke-on-Trent headquarters and provides high quality training to its customers' staff. We operate a customer service centre for the UK & Ireland from our Stoke-on-Trent headquarters which provides the first line of contact between us and our customers.
Our Dundee factory manufactures over 7,000,000 car tyres each year for export all over the world. Opened in 1972 it currently employs just under 850 people. In 2006 Dundee was the first Michelin factory in the world to embrace wind energy with two wind turbine generators helping to reduce our environmental impact and energy bills.
