Bridgestone Tires in Bloomington, IL


Bridgestone originates all the way back in 1930 when the first Bridgestone tire was produced in Japan. The company’s manufacturing plants came through WWII fairly unscathed, and after the war, the company branched out into making motorcycles for a number of years as well as tires. Over the years, Bridgestone became the first manufacturer to offer rayon and nylon cord tires in Japan; by the 80s, they had developed a worldwide manufacturing and distribution network, and purchased Firestone Tire and Rubber in 1988.
