Automotive service is the largest part of Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC's business,

accounting for approximately 50 percent of sales with tire and financial services making up the

rest. Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire manufactures Bridgestone, Firestone, and

Dayton truck tires along with tires for virtually every wheeled vehicle made.

Harvey S. Firestone (1868-1938) founded The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio,

in August 1900, and started marketing solid rubber tires for carriage wheels. Firestone joined the

retail store arena offering basic car service and tire sales in the mid-1920s when the original

Firestone Service Centers were opened. The 1940s saw the emergence of the Firestone Home &

Auto Store - a store concept of a one-stop retailer offering everything from automotive services

and tires to large household appliances, televisions, toys, bicycles, lawnmowers and even

outboard motors with the Firestone name brand affixed. The evolution of the retail stores

continued with the complete Tire & Service Center opening in the 1960s offering expanded

diagnostic under-car and under-hood service.

In the late 1970s the company, in an effort to re-focus its business solely on automotive service

and tire sales, began to phase out the sale of all non-auto related merchandise. Shortly

thereafter, in 1981, the Firestone MasterCare Car Service concept was introduced and

established as a premier brand of quality service being delivered to customers in a consistent

and distinctive manner. Bridgestone Corporation, founded in 1931 in Kurume, Japan, purchased

Firestone in 1988, transforming the company into the world's largest manufacturer of tires and

other rubber products. Bridgestone and Firestone operations in the Americas were consolidated

in 1990 as Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc.

Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc. initiated a series of changes to its corporate structure in December

2001, reorganizing its operations in the Americas under a holding company, Bridgestone

Americas Holding, Inc., and several operating subsidiaries. The largest of these operating

subsidiary companies is Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC. In 2001 Bridgestone/Firestone also

announced its majority ownership stake in Morgan Tire & Auto, Inc. (MTA), then the nation's

second largest independent retailer of tires. Responsibility for MTA was shifted to Bridgestone

Retail Operations, LLC following the reorganization of Bridgestone/Firestone. Today, Bridgestone

Retail Operations, LLC and its subsidiaries employ approximately 22,000 teammates in North

America. Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC consists of more than 2,200 company-owned

consumer and commercial stores in the United States as well as the company's own credit card

operations. The store channels include Firestone Complete Auto Care, Morgan Tire / Tires Plus,

Expert Tire, Commercial & Farm, and Mark Morris.

Today Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC operates the largest number of company-owned fullline

automotive retail generalist stores in the world. The above information is from
