Bridgestone says it has extended its partnership with Road Freight industry body NatRoad for a further two years. The tyre company has bolstered its support through to 2021 by backing NatRoad’s recently announced careers initiative.
Bridgestone became a platinum partner of NatRoad in 2017 and will continue to offer members a 10 per cent saving on Bridgestone and Firestone drive, steer and trailer tyres, as well as the range of Bandag retread products.
Through the NatRoad partnership, Bridgestone will also promote career prospects within its network of company-owned stores throughout Australia via NatRoad’s new careers portal.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Bridgestone who are a strong industry partner. Over the last two years, we have built a collaborative and successful partnership” said Warren Clark, NatRoad CEO.
“Our partnership with Bridgestone provides great value to our members and demonstrates NatRoad’s focus on providing exceptional savings to our members.”
NatRoad is a membership-based industry body assisting road transport professionals through advocacy and advice. For Bridgestone, the partnership is centred on supporting the communities in which it operates and enhancing mobility solutions.
“The trucking industry keeps Australia moving and our NatRoad partnership ensures that we’re backing one of the country’s most vital sectors. Through this initiative, we’re supporting an industry that many others rely on,” said Stephen Roche, Bridgestone Australia & New Zealand Managing Director.
“We’re excited to be part of the new careers initiative. This is an example of the mutual benefits of our partnership with NatRoad and is a fantastic way to promote careers within the transport industry beyond those on the roads.”
