“Thousands of motorists trust their vehicles to Bridgestone technicians each day,” said Bob Cushing, Advance’s executive vice president, professional. “We’re proud that Bridgestone has entrusted Advance with its battery business through our iconic DieHard brand. On behalf of everyone at Advance, we look forward to partnering with Bridgestone and providing customers and their vehicles with the power, reliability and durability of DieHard batteries.”
