Michelin (/ˈmɪʃəlɪn, -læ̃/; full name: Compagnie Générale des Établissements Michelin SCA) is a French multinational tyre manufacturer based in Clermont-Ferrand in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes région of France. It is the second largest tyre manufacturer in the world after Bridgestone and larger than both Goodyear and Continental. In addition to the Michelin brand, it also owns the Kléber tyres company, Uniroyal-Goodrich Tire Company, SASCAR, Bookatable and Camso brands. Michelin is also notable for its Red and Green travel guides, its roadmaps, the Michelin stars that the Red Guide awards to restaurants for their cooking, and for its company mascot Bibendum, colloquially known as the Michelin Man.
Michelin’s numerous inventions include the removable tyre, the pneurail (a tyre for rubber-tyred metros) and the radial tyre.
Michelin manufactures tyres for space shuttles, aircraft, automobiles, heavy equipment, motorcycles, and bicycles. In 2012, the Group produced 166 million tyres at 69 facilities located in 18 countries.
Michelin’s famous travel guides are a product of the Michelin Group’s long-time commitment to enhancing mobility, not only by making the world’s best tyres, but also by providing information that will add to the overall experience of traveling. This commitment started back in 1900, when the first MICHELIN Guide-the brain child of the Michelin brothers-was published and given “on a complimentary basis” to motorists and cyclists, who greatly outnumbered the 2,800 registered cars in France at the time.
The Michelin Group is a global company headquartered in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Founded in 1889, the Michelin Group provides tyres to over 170 countries. The Michelin Group makes tyres locally for your specific needs and road conditions in one of Michelin 69 production facilities around the world. Michelin’s 114,000 employees are committed to making the safest and most relevant tyres for you. Michelin are leaders in innovation and sustainable development for the mobility of people and goods.
