ORRs are used predominantly in mining, quarry, port and industrial, and construction applications all over the world. Until now, the Bridgestone Group has produced these tires in Japan and the United States. The new plant in Thailand will allow Bridgestone to enhance global ORR capacity while responding with increased flexibility to changes in the market.
The new plant will incorporate advanced environmental technologies which will contribute to resource conservation. The technologies will include a system for processing wastewater while manufacturing to maximize water reuse, and a cogeneration system.
Moving forward, the Bridgestone Group will continue to evaluate global demand for ORRs in order to respond to changing market demand trends, and also supply our customers with high quality products on a timely basis.
