Tire Technicians

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for inspectors, testers, and graders in rubber products manufacturing will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022.┬áRecent problems with tire quality in the tire industry are leading to changes in manufacturing processes and to tougher auto safety laws. Also, tire manufacturers have become more focused on proving to consumers that their tires are safe, well designed, and thoroughly tested. Many tire companies are investing in new equipment, upgrading testing areas, and expanding research and development centers. As consumers and the government demand more consistent quality checks, the tire industry will likely rely on the skills of well-trained tire technicians.
