THAILAND – Bridgestone plans to maintain its leadership in the Thai tire market with its 2021 business plan that involves launching innovative products and services for customers and business partners.
Keiji Chuma, managing director of Thai Bridgestone Co Ltd, said in a Bangkok press conference that under the “Bridgestone 3.0” strategy, the company will create social and customer value as a sustainable solutions company towards 2050.
In Thailand Bridgestone aims to provide solutions through innovation designed to solve problems and meet customer satisfaction, he said. It will also provide value-added products, services and solutions to offer safety and confidence to customers as well as efficiency in business operations for business partners.
“Solution means solving problems that is why we listen to problems from our valued customers, in order to further develop our products and services by integrating our strength in tire business with technology,” Chuma said. “In such times and challenging situations, we are in the era of the unprecedented change.
