New Tires, New Jobs For Tyler's Kelly Springfield Plant

Good news for Tyler's Kelly Springfield plant. After a two day visit by Goodyear Executives, it was announced the company would be adding a new tire to the Tyler production site. Plant Manager Mike Drain calls it the company's highest profile product in years. The addition means approximately 50 Kelly workers will be recalled. About 200 Kelly employees were laid off late last year when the plant stopped making a smaller tire line.
