Bridgestone Latinoamérica

Corporate Philosophy

The Bridgestone mission Serving Society with Superior Quality was established based on the philosophy of our founder, Shojiro Ishibashi.

Since its origins in 1931 as a small tire provider in Japan, until its having become the world’s leading tire and rubber company, Bridgestone has always worked with the conviction that it can make the world a better place. At a time when others focused principally on making money, Shōjirō Ishibashi believed that a company that contributed to society would be successful forever.

Shojiro Ishibashi
“I am convinced that a simple profit seeking business will never thrive, but a business that contributes to its society and country will be forever profitable”
— Shojiro Ishibashi
