Bridgestone Corporate Profile
Bridgestone Corporate Profile

The World’s Leading Tyre and Rubber Company

Wherever vehicles carry people and goods, Bridgestone supplies world-class tyres and supports these tyres with world-class services. Bridgestone strives to define the standard for excellence in all tyre cateogories in every nation around the world.

Bridgestone was founded by Shojiro Ishibashi in 1931. From the beginning, he held international aspirations for his business, and named the company “Bridgestone”. The surmane “Ishi-bashi” literally means “stone-bridge”. Reversing the order produced a name that the founder hoped would feel more familiar to everyone.

Our corporate mission is “Serving Society with Superior Quality”, words used by Bridgestone’s founder to describe his vision for the company. Superior quality is not merely a goal to which we aspire in connection with our products, services and technology. It is something that Bridgestone pursues in its corporate activities as well. Bridgestone’s commitment to quality is a worldwide commitment – sharing the values of the community, including the universal desire for a sound environment, and working conscientiously to improve the quality of life for people everywhere.
