Bridgestone extends lease on ATW tyre making facility

Bridgestone Americas has exercised a two-year lease extension option on its Advanced Technology Workshop (ATW) manufacturing facility located in Akron, Ohio.

Founded in the early 1980s and located in the original Firestone Tire and Rubber Company’s Plant One building, ATW is described by Bridgestone Americas as being one of the company’s “most historic and unique tyre production facilities in North America.” The ATW employs more than 50 people.

In addition to the ATW, Bridgestone employs approximately 900 personnel at its Akron campus, which includes the Americas Technical Center (ATC), where it conducts much of its research, design and development.
