This move comes following an announcement on 14 April that production in all Bridgestone plants located in Spain (Burgos, Bilbao and Puente San Miguel) and Russia (Ulyanovsk) had recommenced.  The Indian and South African plants remain closed for the time being.

Bridgestone plants were originally closed in reaction to the widespread drop in demand for tyre products, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, with the need for tyres now beginning to rise again, the business has made the decision to resume production in order to ensure adequate supply.

The Japanese brand has, however, suspended operations at eight tyre factories in Japan in light of lower-than-usual global demand. The plants will be closed from 29 April until 8 May, in an extension of a previously planned three-day closure for Japan’s Golden Week national holiday.
