Bridgestone establishes technical center in Thailand
Bridgestone Corp said its subsidiary Bridgestone Asia Pacific PTE Ltd (BSAP) will establish a new technical center in Thailand. The total investment of the project is approximately 3.7 billion yen, and the technical center is expected to open in July.
Currently, the functions of tire development, tire production technology development, and quality management for operations in the Asia Pacific region are handled by the company’s technical center in Japan.
Once the new facility is complete, operations will be gradually shifted to the new technical center. With this shift, the Bridgestone Group intends to further enhance these functions and establish a framework for research and development that will reflect information from the markets in a more timely manner.
