Bridgestone traces its roots to two distinguished companies. The first company is The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, founded by Harvey Firestone in Akron, Ohio in August 1900. The second company is the Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd., founded by Shojiro Ishibashi in Japan in 1931.
The two companies merged in 1988 when Bridgestone purchased Firestone, therefore becoming the world’s largest tire and rubber company. Bridgestone established its headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee in 1992. The company is named after an English translation of its founder, Shojiro Ishibashi, surname “Stone Bridge”. He reversed the two english words and combined them to make “Bridgestone”.
Today, Bridgestone remains committed to being a global leader in tire technology. They proudly stand behind their products with some of the best warranties in the industry. Bridgestone engineers understand that road conditions are unpredictable. That is why they make it a top priority to construct tires that offer road-gripping performance and versatility. In return, allowing the consumer to confidently explore challenging terrain with peace of mind.
