Brussels--Bridgestone Corp has announced plans to build a plant in Poland to produce rubber tracks for earthmoving equipment. Bridgestone said the plant is to serve rising European demand for rubber tracks amid continuing global growth in demand for construction machinery. It will be in the city of Zarow in the southwestern Polish province near Wroclaw.
Plans call for the plant to begin operation in July 2006 and for its production capacity to reach about 26,000 tracks a year in 2007. Bridgestone Corporation will invest about â‚¬12 million in the plant. The new plant will operate as Bridgestone Diversified Products Poland Sp. z o.o., a wholly owned Bridgestone Corporation subsidiary that was established in December 29, 2004.
