Americas Technical Center

Bridgestone opened its state-of-the-art Americas Technical Center in April 2012. The $100 million facility houses more than 450 teammates who develop innovative and advanced tire technologies. The Akron facility is one of only three technical centers for Bridgestone worldwide (the other two reside in Tokyo and Rome). This green facility operates with 30% better efficiency and boasts dozens of features to reduce its environmental footprint.

 

Sustainability features of the center fall into the following categories:

  • Energy savings
  • Water management
  • Landscaping
  • Personal well-being
  • Walkability
