Bridgestone Bandag announces price increase


Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS), a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, has increased prices on its Bridgestone brand products. Effective July 1, 2010, Bridgestone brand truck and bus radial tire base prices will increase up to six percent in the United States.

“Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions continues to look for ways to balance costs and continue to deliver a premium package of value to our dealer and fleet customers. Today, however, we have reached a point where we must pass along some of the increased costs that are outside of our control including energy, fuel and raw materials,” says Kurt Danielson, Vice President Sales and Marketing, BBTS.
