India-based tire maker Apollo moving North America HQ to Atlanta

India-based tire maker Apollo Tyres Ltd. is moving its North American headquarters to Atlanta as the company launches a U.S. expansion.

Apollo is the world’s 17th-largest tire maker. It recently opened a new plant in Hungary as it expands in Europe.

The Atlanta headquarters will be at 1175 Peachtree in Midtown, TireReview.com reports. Read more here. It will initially have five employees but will grow as the company expands in the United States, Rubber & Plastics News reports. Read the full story here.
