In celebration of its 10th anniversary, the Aiken County Bridgestone/Firestone tire facility made a contribution of $5,000 to Aiken Technical College. Dr. Susan Windsor accepted the donation on behalf of the college.
"I am honored to be here to celebrate yet another milestone with this great team at our Aiken County facility," said Duke Nishiyama, the vice chairman and president of Bridgestone Americas Holding Inc. and Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire LLC. "The Aiken County community has been very supportive of our business over the years and our promise to them is to continue to be a good corporate citizen."
The plant's operations began in 1999, and it now has 950 employees.
