Bridgestone Recognized as Top Global Supplier by General Motors

Bridgestone Corporation (Bridgestone) was recognized by General Motors (GM) as one of its top global suppliers of 2023. The company was awarded this distinction during the GM 32nd Annual Supplier of the Year event. Performance, innovation, cultural alignment with GM’s values, and having a commitment to achieving GM’s ambitious goals are what earned Bridgestone this honor. Bridgestone was one of 86 companies out of GM’s network of more than 20,000 suppliers to achieve this award, marking Bridgestone’s ninth consecutive and 22nd overall recognition from GM.

“We infuse our passion for excellence into every Bridgestone and Firestone product we design and supply to General Motors,” said David Colletti, President, Consumer Original Equipment Tires, North America, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “This award acknowledges the extraordinary level of collaboration with GM and our teammates around the world.”

 

Bridgestone supplies General Motors with both Bridgestone and Firestone brand tires. This includes Bridgestone’s recent launch of cutting-edge tire technologies for GM’s 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV and 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV Police Pursuit vehicles. The Chevrolet Blazer EV is equipped with the bespoke Bridgestone Alenza A/S 02, engineered to deliver all-season performance and comfort. The Alenza A/S 02 incorporates B-SEALS technology, which is a recyclable, silicone-based tire sealant providing excellent sealant performance in the event of a puncture.

 

The Chevrolet Blazer EV Police Pursuit is equipped with custom-engineered Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tires. Built with high-speed pursuits in mind, the Firehawk Pursuit is constructed to deliver quick steering response and confident handling.

Bridgestone’s Supplier of the Year recognition from GM aligns with the Bridgestone E8 Commitment, which consists of eight Bridgestone-like values starting with the letter “E” (Energy, Ecology, Efficiency, Extension, Economy, Emotion, Ease and Empowerment). By developing innovative tire solutions for GM, Bridgestone is delivering on its “Ecology” and “Extension” commitment.
