Bridgestone Recognized as Top Global Supplier by GM

Bridgestone received the top global supplier award at the 32nd-annual Supplier of the Year event.

Bridgestone was recognized by General Motors as one of its top global suppliers of 2023. The company was awarded this distinction during the GM 32nd Annual Supplier of the Year event. Bridgestone was one of 86 companies out of GM’s network of more than 20,000 suppliers to achieve this award, marking Bridgestone’s ninth consecutive and 22nd overall recognition from GM, the company said.

“We infuse our passion for excellence into every Bridgestone and Firestone product we design and supply to General Motors,” said David Colletti, president, consumer original equipment tires, North America, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “This award acknowledges the extraordinary level of collaboration with GM and our teammates around the world.”

Bridgestone said it supplies General Motors with both Bridgestone and Firestone brand tires. This includes Bridgestone’s recent launch of tire technologies for GM’s 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV and 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV Police Pursuit vehicles. The Chevrolet Blazer EV is equipped with the bespoke Bridgestone Alenza A/S 02, which incorporates B-SEALS technology, a recyclable, silicone-based tire sealant.

The Chevrolet Blazer EV Police Pursuit is equipped with custom-engineered Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tires. Built with high-speed pursuits in mind, the Firehawk Pursuit is constructed to deliver quick steering response and confident handling, the company said.
