Currently, the firm does business via four segments: North American Tire; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Tire (which previously operated as two segments—European Union, and everything else); Latin American Tire and Asia Pacific Tire. The company has 61 manufacturing facilities in 25 countries and has more than 1,800 retail outlets around the world, as well as three research and development and three tire proving facilities.
