Bridgestone Bandag Sets US Price Increases
Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS), a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, will increase prices on its Firestone, Dayton and Bandag brand products sold in the US up to 6 per cent, says Tire Review.
Effective June 1, Firestone and Dayton brand truck and bus radial tyre base prices will increase up to 6 per cent. As of 1 May, Bandag retread material prices increased up to 6 per cent.
“Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions continues to look for ways to balance costs and continue to deliver a premium package of value to our dealer and fleet customers. Today, however, we have reached a point where we must increase prices due to the unrelenting escalation of costs outside of our control for energy, fuel and raw materials,” said Kurt Danielson, vice president of sales and marketing, BBTS.
