Bridgestone has announced the creation of a new division called Mexico and Central America, which involves the merger of operations in Costa Rica and Mexico, which together produce 11 million tires a year.

Tyre manufacturer Bridgestone has withdrawn from the free zone regime in order to export, with better benefits, under trade agreements with the countries of the Pacific Alliance.
The firm has dissolved Bridgestone de Centroamérica S.A, a company registered in the free zone regime, in order to centralize operations in the local company Bridgestone de Costa Rica, so that it can export under the conditions of the trade agreements.
