Tyre Manufacturers - Bridgestone Tyres

Bridgestone tyres have been produced in Japan since 1931. While in the Japanese Kurume it was initially specialized in motorbike tyres and even built motorbikes and bicycles up to 1970, it still developed into the world's largest tyre manufacturer. Bridgestone now employs more than 137,000 people, who care for the production of summer tyres, winter tyres, all-season tyres and specialist tyres for cars. These are the main business of the Japanese tyre manufacturer, but the company still produces tyres for motorcycles, trucks, excavators and many other special vehicles. The name Bridgestone, which sounds only conditionally Japanese, derives from the first name of the company founder Ishibashi Shojiro, which translates into English as much as "Stone Bridge". 

Bridgestone took over the US tyre producer Firestone in 1988, entered the Formula 1 tyre as a tyre supplier in 1997 and was involved there as an equipment supplier from Ferrari, among others, at several World Championships held by Michael Schuhmacher. From 2006 to the exit of the company from the Formula 1 in the year 2010 one went in the royal class even exclusively with Bridgestone tires. After the 2010 season, a strategic reorientation took place, in which Formula 1 should no longer play a role. Bridgestone once again intensified the development of innovative technologies and products and thus relied on what the company had always been doing.
