Our philosophy

Serve Society with Superior Quality

Bridgestone has been guided by the philosophy of our founder Shojiro Ishibashi since 1931 to 'Serve Society with Superior Quality.' Over the years, the pursuit of superior quality has resulted in Bridgestone becoming the global market leader in the rubber industry and in polymer science technologies.

Today Bridgestone continues to push the performance capabilities for all our products with an unmatched commitment to Research and Development.

Background

Bridgestone shares the same passion for the game of golf as our founder did. Mr. Ishibashi converted his golf passion into a commercial success when Bridgestone first produced golf balls in 1935.

Technical developments in tire technology lead to breakthroughs in golf ball technology which have allowed Bridgestone to be the number one golf ball producer in Japan.

Design and production of golf clubs followed in 1972 with the same passion for excellence propelling Bridgestone to a leadership position in the current marketplace.
