The award was presented at the Daimler Supplier Award presentation ceremony at the Mercedes Center, Stuttgart, Germany, 15 March, in the presence of Daimler top management and representatives of key global Daimler suppliers.
Edwin Van der Stad, Director, OE Business, Bridgestone Europe, received the award on behalf of Bridgestone. â€œBridgestone is honoured to receive this special award after the extremely difficult situation caused by the catastrophe in Japan,â€ he said.
Van der Stad added, â€œDaimler has ambitious goals for the future and Bridgestone looks forward to working closely with this premium car manufacturer in all regions of the world, in both the commercial vehicle and passenger car markets.â€
Daimler awarded its Special Award for Partnership to a group of 34 Japanese key suppliers in recognition of their exceptional efforts to overcome the disruption caused by the catastrophe and find solutions to keep the supply chain running, with minimal effect on Daimler business.
Bridgestone supplies a wide range of Daimler passenger cars and commercial vehicles with original equipment tyres. Two of the most recent passenger car fitment contracts are with the new Bridgestone Turanza T001 touring tyre for the Mercedes B-Class.
