Bridgestone wins Best Tyre Award

Nov 18, 2010

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

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

South Africa for its Bridgestone brand for the third 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.

The Focus on Excellence awards pay tribute to the best South African companies in the field of trucking and transport and are considered the ultimate accolade in the transport industry.

"Just to be a finalist is a significant achievement, because only companies at the very top of their game qualify. These companies are doing an outstanding job of delivering world-class customer service," said Charleen Clarke, editor of Transport & Logistics.

Julio Fava, general manager of producer sales at Bridgestone SA, accepted the award and, as he does on this occasion, thanked 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 you for the continued support."

"We are proud to accept this continued 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."
