Bridgestone opens new technical center in Bangkok
Earlier this month, Bridgestone Asia Pacific held the opening ceremony for Bridgestone Asia Pacific Technical Center in Bangkok. This will be the Bridgestone Group’s first technical center in Thailand, and also in the Asia Pacific region.
As the markets in the Asian region continue to grow and diversify at a fast rate, Bridgestone believes that it is necessary to set up a technical center in Thailand as a step to strengthen its framework for research and development in the region. By establishing a technical center close to the markets, Bridgestone will be able to grasp changes in its customers’ needs constantly 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.
