The French tyre manufacturer announced it would cease the manufacture of truck tyres at the site in the country's west by 2015, slashing 700 jobs due to plummeting demand in Europe, and concentrate production on its factory at La Roche-sur-Yon, also located in western France. That site's annual production would increase from the current level of 800,000 to 1.6 million by 2019, creating around 170 new jobs.
