Firestone Industrial Products, a subsidiary of Bridgestone Americas, to invest nearly $9 million to create more than 40 new jobs

Firestone Industrial Products will invest $8.9 million to expand manufacturing and distribution at its Firestone Airide facility in Dyersburg.

Firestone Airide, a division of Firestone Industrial Products headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, constructed a new facility at 1901 Sylvan Road, which will house 41 new jobs upon completion of the project.

“With its strategic location and increased capability, the new distribution center will enable us to shorten time-to-market to meet customer demands while further optimizing our operations. We have a vital role to play in the transformation of mobility created by advanced electric vehicles and supporting technologies, such as our Firestone air springs,” said Firestone Airide President Justin Monaghan.

The expansion will comprise a warehouse center and small box kitting operation to further enhance the company’s air spring production and distribution worldwide.

“Bridgestone is a valued employer and has created jobs for 4,400 Tennesseans across the state. I am proud to take part in announcing another expansion for this global brand and thank both Bridgestone and Firestone Airide for their commitment to investing in Tennessee’s exceptional workforce,” said Governor Bill Lee.

Firestone has more than 80 years of experience designing and manufacturing air springs and related products to eliminate vibration across the automotive, heavy-duty and off-highway segments and will collaboratively integrate tire and air spring sensing technologies to create a unique value proposition for our partners through performance, comfort and sustainable solutions.
