The company's supplier network consists of 750, mostly Hungarian small and medium-size enterprises, which in 2018 generated HUF 4.6 billion in sales of products and services.

In the past decade, the Japanese company invested about EUR 430 million in the construction and technological development of its factories in Tatabánya, which by now is one of the most modern plants internationally. Bridgestone’s Artificial Intelligence-based EXAMATION digital production technology is only used in Hungary outside Japan.
