Goodyear 1MADISONVILLE, Ky. (4/19/18) — Today marked the end of an era off Island Ford Road in Madisonville.

Excavating machines could be seen tearing down the old Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. plant that closed in 1992 and previously employed 180 people.

Madisonville has attracted a few new and expanding industries since that time.

The Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corp. reported earlier this year that nearby WEBstaurantStore, a subsidiary of Clark Associates, purchased the old Goodyear facility and is planning an expansion there. No new details have been released.

WEBstaurant, an online provider of food-service equipment and supplies, opened the $6.75 million Madisonville distribution center in September 2011.

Alliance Coal occupied the Goodyear building and signed a contract to purchase the 65,000 square-foot spec building on Island Ford road that was built in 2003, EDC reported in January.
