ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Cooper Tire officials refuse to say much about it, but they are reducing production at the Albany plant. A shortage of synthetic rubber is to blame.
Hurricane Ike interrupted the supply of a chemical used to make synthetic rubber. A Cooper spokesman refused to say Tuesday whether there would be any layoffs at the Albany Plant.
He also wouldn't tell us how long the problem could last or how much business is reduced, but he did say that all Cooper plants are affected.
