DOTHAN, Alabama — Gateway Tire announced plans today to invest $9 million to expand its distribution hub in Dothan through a growth project that will create 30 jobs at the Houston County facility.
The project will add 100,000 square feet to Gateway Tire’s existing 200,000-square-foot warehouse, built in Westgate Industrial Park beginning in 2017. The company’s initial project in Dothan involved an $11 million investment.
“The distribution/logistics sector is one of the foundational business targets in Alabama’s overarching strategic economic development effort,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
“The Gateway Tire expansion project showcases how our team works to recruit new investment, as we did when the company selected Dothan back in 2017, and how we support their continued growth over the years.”
