Tyre-Shopper Introduces Bridgestone: Japanese Innovation, Global Presence

The name Bridgestone Tyres is a transposition and translation of the Japanese word ‘ishibashi’ which means ‘stone bridge’ and the origins of Bridgestone lie in the city of Kurume in Japan. Over the years, with several acquisitions, the company has become an international player with global presence. Tyre-Shopper stocks a wide range of radials from Bridgestone. A Proud History The very first tyre to be marketed under the Bridgestone brand was made in the year 1930 in Kurume. The company decided to develop its own tyre making technology based on Japanese techniques and did not incorporate western technologies in its process. Almost devastated after the Second World War, the company managed to sprint back to production and immediately started innovating new technologies to offer its customers better performance with their vehicles. In 1951, it became the first company in Japan to sell rayon cord tyres. By 1959 the company had begun the sale of nylon tyres and gradually expanded operations overseas. 95. Bridgestone 1 Firestone Acquisition In 1988, Bridgestone purchased the American tyre brand Firestone based in Akron Ohio and established presence in the western markets. The company then put considerable efforts and funds into positioning Firestone as a premium car tyre brand in the USA and Europe. Racing Experience By the 1980’s Bridgestone had also shown keen interest in the development of tyres for Formula racing. By the year 1997, the company began supplying tyres for F1 racing and got its first title in the next year itself with McLaren Mercedes. Between the years 2008 and 2010, the Japanese conglomerate was the sole supplier of tyres for Formula one. A Wide Range of Radials Bridgestone offers it’s customers in the United Kingdom a range of tyres including summer, winter and high performance tyres for cars, SUV’s, pickup trucks and construction machines as well as motorcycle tyres.
