Michelin, tyre manufacturer with a global foot-
print, employs 115,000 and has sales organisa-
tions in over 170 countries. Spurred on by its
vision of environmentally friendly mobility, the
company develops, produces and sells tyres for
almost all vehicle types. For the continuous
development of its sophisticated products and
technologies, Michelin operates several test and
development centres in Europe, the US and
Japan. The company has demonstrated its cor-
porate responsibility in many ways, for example
by organising the Michelin Challenge Bibendum
– one of the largest forums for sustainable
mobility worldwide – since 1998.
In 1931, Karlsruhe became Michelin’s first pro-
duction site in Germany. Today, this production
facility is a recognised specialist for the produc-
tion of lightweight truck tyres within the group.
Its highly automated production lines are state of
the art in the industry. Michelin produces a wide
range of tyre sizes, primarily for the European
market but also for Japan, Mexico and North
America.
Innovations are first priority, which is one of the
reasons for becoming a partner in the Rhein-
Mobil project, a cross-border mobility model.
The project, promoted by the Federal Ministry of
Transport, Building and Urban Development, is to
prove in a three-year international test that elec-
tric vehicles can be operated economically in
certain applications.
