In 1900, Harvey Samuel Firestone founded the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio. He was a close friend of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison and soon every Ford was fitted with Firestone tires. Henry Ford is considered a pioneer of mass production. It should come as no surprise that Firestone adopted this method. In this way, Firestone created very large volumes, which would ultimately lead to Firestone becoming the largest rubber producer in the world. Firestone tires have a rich history, up to and including Graham Hill, who drove in Formula 1 and won on Firestone tires. Harvey S. Firestone found it his greatest challenge as a leader to support the development and growth of the people who worked for him. "Growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership".
In 1988 the car tire brand was bought by the Japanese Bridgestone. It is often thought that Bridgestone and Firestone both end in "stone" because they belong to the same group and have chosen it intentionally. That is not true. The reality is that both in Japan and in the United States, independent tire manufacturers developed independently, both with founders with "stone" in their name: stone bridge and flint. That Bridgestone is the premium brand of the group and Firestone the quality brand is therefore purely a management choice. If you choose Firestone, you buy your tires from the Bridgestone group, the largest tire manufacturer in the world.
