Michelin To Transfer Russian Operations To Local Management By 2022-end

Tire manufacturing company Michelin (MGDDY.PK) announced its plans to transfer all of its Russian business to local management by the year-end.

The decision comes after Michelin suspended its activities in Russia on March 15 in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

“The Group is therefore compelled to plan the transfer of all of its Russian operations by the end of 2022 and is considering the possibility of transferring control of its administrative, sales and industrial operations to the current local management. In doing so, Michelin is preparing the most favorable framework possible for its employees,” the company announced in a statement.

The new entity would operate through an independent structure from Michelin.

Michelin employs about 1,000 people in Russia, including 750 at the Davydovo plant, located about 100 kilometers from Moscow. The site has an annual production capacity of 1.5 to 2 million tires, mainly for passenger cars. Michelin’s sales in the country represent 2% of the Group’s total sales and 1% of its global car tire production.

Michelin’s balance sheet exposure is currently estimated to be 250 million euros, or $265 million, from Russian operations. The company explained that the transfer of operations would not impact its financial guidance.

Ford Recalls F-150 Lightning Electric Trucks To Fix Tire Pressure Fault

Ford Motor (F) has recalled about 2,900 F-150 Lightning electric truck to fix a software issue that could result in a failure to provide warning of low tire pressure. This is the electric vehicle’s first recall.

The software issue could lead to a failure to provide adequate warning of low tire pressure, or the light will fail to illuminate, which increases risk of crash. This issue only affects trucks delivered with 20? or 22? all-season tires.

Ford states this issue exists because the recommended tire cold inflation pressure value in the Body Control Module (BCM) was incorrectly set to 35 psi rather than the correct inflation pressure of 42 psi.

“Low tire inflation pressure may lead to poor vehicle handling and a possible loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of crash. Ford encourages customers to check their tire pressure matches figures provided on the Tire and Loading Information label located inside the driver-side front door jamb,” the auto giant said in a statement.

The recall covers nearly 2,666 U.S. vehicles and 220 in Canada. There are no accidents or injuries connected to the recall. The issue will fixed through an over-the-air software update.
