Brussels -- Bridgestone Europe has signed a long-term contract to supply Volvo Group trucks with OE tyres, a 28 April company statement said. Bridgestone already has long-term preferred supplier agreements with Volvo Group in Asia and North and South America
The terms of the agreement, Bridgestone said, represent a significant increase in market share and cover a wide range of truck tyres, including new Bridgestone R249 EVO and R297 EVO steer tyres, the statement added.
Bridgestone's EVO steer-axle tyres enable operators to improve environmental performance without compromising safety, cost efficiency or vehicle chassis height. Their development anticipates increased truck front-axle loads due to the addition of clean technologies in compliance with Euro V and VI emission regulations, the statement said.
â€œBridgestone Europe has been able to meet the high standards set by the Volvo Group, both in products and supply performance, and is delighted to enter into this agreement with a leading global truck groupâ€ commented Gerry Duffy, vice president, Sales & Marketing Bridgestone Europe, after signing the agreement.
