Goodyear says without a seven-day schedule, it can not make enough tires in Danville--
So instead the plant in Topeka, Kansas, which DOES operate continuously, was awarded 15-million dollars to expand.
In a statement Goodyear vice president H-Clay Orme said:
"We were hoping to be able to invest heavily in our Danville, Virginia plant, but a union vote there on continuos operations failed. Now, we're exploring all options globally for supply points."
Two tire machines are also being moved out of the Danville plant.
