Bridgestone New Zealand Ltd (BSNZ) maintains this reputation with a long-held tradition of excellence supported by a commitment to offering the highest quality products and services.

As part of a comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility program, the company prides itself on maintaining accreditation to quality, OH&S and environmental standards.

Above all, the company strives to be trusted by the community and valued by its employees and all operations are guided by a mission of Serving Society with Superior Quality.

Bridgestone New Zealand's National Support Office is based in Auckland. The company is supported by an employee network of more than 800 people across New Zealand. Bridgestone New Zealand's network of stores nationwide includes Bridgestone Select and Bridgestone Tyre Centre.
