Based in Japan, Bridgestone is the world's largest tyre and rubber company. Operating on a global scale, the company is at the forefront of tyre and rubber technology. Bridgestone was founded in the 1930's by Mr Shojiro Ishibashi, a forward-thinker who realised that the road to success in global markets lay in an English brand name. He took a literal translation of his own name, "Stonebridge", and created the Bridgestone brand.
The company now employs over 105,000 people in 150 countries and has production facilities and test and research centres around the world.
Today, Bridgestone plays a leading role in the development of Formula One race tyres. Although these tyres are vastly different from those used on the road, it gives the company a chance to work with casings and compounds that are exposed to tremendous stresses and strains. The data gathered for the F1 field then filters down through the Ultra High Performance (UHP) tyres offered by Bridgestone.
We sell the entire range of high quality Bridgestone car and van tyres and will fit them at a location of your choice.
