WASHINGTON, D.C., November 30, 2018– The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) commends the governments of the United States, Mexico and Canada on signing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. We praise this positive step, which reconfirms the importance of free and fair trade among the three countries. We look forward to the next steps in this process. 

Tire manufacturing is vital to the U.S. economy. Tires manufactured by our members safely transport millions of Americans and American goods each day. USTMA opposes trade policies that threaten the competitiveness of U.S. tire manufacturing.

The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association is the national trade association for tire manufacturers that produce tires in the U.S. Our 12 member companies operate 56 tire-related manufacturing facilities in 17 states and generate over $27 billion in annual sales. We directly support more than a quarter million tire manufacturing U.S. jobs – totaling almost $20 billion in wages. In 2017, USTMA members accounted for 82 percent of the 316 million passenger, light truck and truck tire shipments in the U.S.
