Increased Domestic Demand Leads to Expansion of Bridgestone Golf's U.S. Manufacturing Operations

Georgia-Based Manufacturer Expects to Increase Domestic Production of Acclaimed Golf Balls by 40% in 2012

COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf, announced today that it would undertake measures to satisfy an increased consumer demand for its premium level golf balls in the United States, by increasing its golf ball production at its Covington, Georgia facility by 40% in 2012. As part of the plan for increased United States-based production, Bridgestone Golf will manufacture its popular TOUR B330-RX family of Urethane-covered golf balls in Georgia, beginning in June 2012. The production increase will necessitate the hiring of 20 additional full-time workers at the facility, 40 miles east of Atlanta.

"We are proud to be bringing jobs and an infusion of capital to Georgia," said Shigeru Nakayama, President of Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "In just 7 short years since we launched the Bridgestone Golf brand, we have cemented our place as the #2 golf ball in the industry in terms of dollar market share. That success is in large part due to the very people working right here in this factory, that are focused on product quality and meeting the needs of our growing customer base every day."

Bridgestone U.S. Golf Ball Manufacturing Reaches Remarkable Milestone

The increase in production at the Covington plant comes as Bridgestone celebrates an important milestone in company history. Recently, Bridgestone Golf completed manufacturing of the company's 50 millionth dozen of golf balls. Since 1990, when Bridgestone began production of its golf balls in the United States under the Precept brand name, the company has produced more than 600 million golf balls at its Covington facility. If one were to line up 600 million golf balls side-by-side, the line of balls would cover 15,782 miles, stretching from Covington, Georgia to Tokyo, Japan and back.
