Vacant Facility Acquired
Prominent Local Investors Purchase Abandoned Facility and Site
For many years, the General Tire Plant remained empty and unused, despite the enormous potential of the building and its prime location at the intersection of I-31 and Highway 77. In 1995, the Clifton Robinson family and H. Bland Cromwell acquired the plant and surrounding acreage as a commercial investment property. A few tenants lease space, but much of the plant remained vacant.
