GREENVILLE, S.C., July 25, 2023 – Michelin North America, Inc. adheres to a simple philosophy when it comes to the safety of its employees...every member of the team is important.
The Kent Mounting Center, located in Kent, Washington, provides tire and wheel service for 100% of Boeing commercial aircraft production, which amounts to more than 60,000 assemblies over the past 13 years.
“We are extremely proud of this significant accomplishment of over 5,000 days without a workplace safety incident,” said Randolph Marks, facilities manager, Michelin Mounting Center. “While we have achieved a significant result, we still strive to lose zero days of production because of a work-related injury.
