Bridgestone Asia Pacific Technical Center Celebrates Official Opening

Tokyo, Aug 19, 2013 (JCN) - Bridgestone Asia Pacific Technical Center Co., Ltd., wholly-owned subsidiary of Bridgestone Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd., today held a ceremony to celebrate the official opening of its office in Bangkok, Thailand. This is the Bridgestone Group's first technical center in Thailand, and also in the Asia Pacific region.

During the ceremony, Mr. Y. Morimoto, Member of the Board, and Chief Technology Officer responsible for Technology, talked about the role that the technical center will play in providing technical support across the region and his expectations of it in enhancing research and development for Bridgestone to respond more quickly to customers' needs.

As Asian markets grow and diversify quickly, Bridgestone is setting up a technical center in Thailand to strengthen its framework for research and development in the region. By establishing a technical center close to markets, Bridgestone will be able to grasp changes in its customers' needs and reflect these in the development of its products.

The new technical center will oversee the functions of Tire Development, Production Technology, Quality Management, and Procurement, and serve as a regional base to enhance the operational level in terms of safety, environment, product quality and delivery in its Asian plants.

The Bridgestone Group plans to increase its presence in the Asia Pacific region through enhancing research and development, expanding its sales network, and increasing tire production to achieve its mission of "Serving Society with Superior Quality".
