Tyre Manufacturers - Bridgestone Tyres

Bridgestone - the Formula 1 expert

Founded in Japan in 1931, the name of the renowned tyre manufacturer Bridgestone is derived from the name of the company founder "Ishibashi". The meaning of his Japanese name "Stonebridge" was translated into English ("Bridgestone") in favor of an internationally catchy company name. As one of the five largest international tyre manufacturers, Bridgestone is known for its high-performance tire technology. In particular, the company used this company as the sole supplier of Formula 1 in the years 2007 to 2010.

For regular road traffic, Bridgestone manufactures high-quality tyre models, for example, with the so-called run-flat technology. This also makes it possible to travel safely without a tyre damage. In addition to various tyre models for the industrial sector, motorcycles, cars, trucks, agricultural vehicles, the Japanese world-wide company also produces motorcycles until 1970.
