For the third time in four years Bridgestone South Africa is a winner in the annual Focus on Excellence Awards, sponsored by WesBank and hosted by Focus on Transport and Logistics magazine.

The Focus on Excellence award for best tyre was awarded to Bridgestone

South Africa for its Bridgestone brand for the second year in succession. Bridgestone's popular Firestone range won the inaugural award in 2006. Bridgestone provides transport operators with a comprehensive range of commercial vehicle tyres, ideally suited for a wide variety of applications.

Julio Fava, general manager of producer sales at Bridgestone SA, accepted the award: "I"d like to thank each and every transport operator and manufacturer who bought even one Bridgestone tyre in the past year. Without our customers we have no business, so thank your for the continued support.

"We are proud to accept this recognition of the Bridgestone brand. This latest accolade for our tyres is testimony to the strong brand presence Bridgestone enjoys within the automotive industry. It is also proof that our customers truly enjoy the superior products we manufacture and have confidence in them."

He also thanked Maxiprest for its excellent back-up support of Bridgestone's products.
