The Firestone tyre company was founded in 1900 by Harvey S. Firestone in Akron, Ohio. In 1932, Harvey S. Firestone, originally a farmer, developed the world’s first pneumatic tractor tyre. Today, Firestone is a part of the Bridgestone Corporation, the largest tyre and rubber company in the world. The company employs over 130,000 people and has annual sales revenues of well over $25,000 million. The Global head office is located in Tokyo with the European headquarters in Brussels, Belgium. Bridgestone Europe operates an R&D center, 8 plants and offices in more than 30 European countries, with over 13,000 employees.

The European Firestone agricultural tyre is a European tyre to the core. Designed and intensively tested at our Research & Development Centre in Italy and produced in Spain. We consult with European farmers during the whole process.
Thanks to continuous testing and enhanced technologies, we are able to deliver constant innovations which suit the needs of the European farmers. Other Firestone agricultural products are designed and tested in Ohio (USA) and produced in the Firestone plants in Des Moines (USA), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Port Elizabeth (South Africa).
The environmental mission is implemented through two core strategies: the commitment to an open environmental communication, and the implementation of TEAMS (Total Environmental Advanced Management System: organizing environmental activities in a consistent and harmonized way on global basis and in line with the ISO14001 standard).
