Bridgestone Investing in Japanese OTR Tire Plant

Bridgestone Corporation is investing ¥10.2 billion (approx. $94.3 million) to install new equipment for certain facilities at its Shimonoseki, Japan plant, the company’s flagship production base for tires made for mining and construction vehicles (OTR tires).

Installation of the equipment is set to begin in 2022 and be completed by the end of 2025, the company says. Bridgestone says the new equipment will enhance the company’s production system in terms of safety, disaster preparedness, eco-friendliness, quality and productivity.
