With headquarters in Findlay, OH, Cooper Tire has manufacturing, sales, distribution, technical and design facilities in 11 countries around the world.
Tires are designed at technical centers in Findlay, OH and Melksham, England, and Kunshan, China. Tires are evaluated for performance on a test track in San Antonio, TX.

“I am proud of what we accomplished in 2014, particularly after a very disruptive year in 2013. Our full year 2014 operating profit was our second best in our 100-year history. Unit volume for the full year rose 6 percent, and our operating margin was strong at almost 9 percent. In the fourth quarter, we continued to see robust unit volume growth in the Americas segment and that segment delivered operating margins near 10 percent. However, our fourth quarter results were negatively impacted by weakness in our international operations. In 2015 we will continue our focus on exploring opportunities to expand our presence in Asia after the sale of our interest in the joint venture, so as to benefit from a more sizeable footprint in that high-growth market,” said Roy Armes, Cooper’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President.
The company was formed in 1920 by Ira Cooper for the production and distribution of new tires.
