When Shojiro Ishibashi established Bridgestone in 1931, he laid the foundation for an organization that would contribute to society through innovation and the delivery of products and services of the highest quality to serve the needs of our customers and end-users. Today, we remain committed to our founder’s vision, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the IOC and the Olympic Movement, one that will enhance our ability to communicate that commitment to our many stakeholders, wherever they may be located in the world.
