A Global Dream

At Bridgestone, our dream is to become a truly global enterprise and to establish the Bridgestone brand as the undisputed world No. 1 brand in both name and substance. Across the globe, our entire team is focused on achieving this goal.

The roots of our dream date back to the establishment of Bridgestone Tire Co., Ltd. in 1931. Anticipating the future potential of tyres for passenger cars and the international development of the business, founder Shojiro Ishibashi used an English translation of his surname for the name of the company. Even then he may indeed have been dreaming of the future of the Bridgestone Group.

As Japan's automobile industry grew, The Bridgestone Group expanded its business to become Japan's largest tyre manufacturer. The company also actively expanded overseas, particularly in Asia. In 1988, the company acquired The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, a well respected global corporation with a venerable history of its own. This transformed Bridgestone into one of the world's largest tyre and rubber companies and created a global team dedicated to serving customers worldwide with the highest level of quality, service and technology.

We hope this introduction to our company will provide you with a deeper understanding of the Bridgestone Group's strengths, as well as our future direction.

Creation of the Bridgestone Company and production of the first tire

1931-1940

The very first Bridgestone tyre was produced on April 9th, 1930, by the Japan “Tabi” socks Tyre Division. Approximately one year after first tyre was built, on March 1st, 1931, the founder, Shojiro Ishibashi, made the Japan “Tabi” socks Tyre Division independent and established the Bridgestone Tire Co., Ltd. in the city of Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture. The Bridgestone Tire Co., Ltd. focused on manufacturing tyres based solely on Japanese technology. In the early days, the company experienced many challenges in the areas of technology, production and sales. The company quickly improved its quality and the business rapidly expanded both the domestically and overseas.
