In 1969, Francois Michelin decided to expand his company to North America. Of all the places he could have built a manufacturing base, he chose Canada – for the proximity to the market, for the access to shipping routes, and most importantly, for the quality of the people who live here.
Fast forward 50 years and Michelin is now one of the largest tire manufacturing employers in Canada, with sites across Nova Scotia and Quebec. One thing that has stayed the same though: our unwavering commitment to our values: Respect for the Customer and Shareholder, People, Facts, and the Environment.
We invite you to share our adventure as we innovate to improve sustainable mobility!
