BFNAT N.C. Plant Gets EPA Recognition

(Akron/Tire Review) Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire’s (BFNAT) tire plant in Wilson, N.C., was accepted into the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Environmental Performance Track (NEPT) program.

With that addition, all seven of BFNAT’s U.S. tire plants have been recognized for environmental performance.
The EPA created the voluntary NEPT program to reward and recognize companies that show a commitment to environmental performance that goes above and beyond current requirements and that have a proven track record of improving environmental performance over time.
“This program confirms to our teammates that as each of them perform the environmental aspects of their jobs, it adds up to excellent results,” said Jim Pridgen, plant manager at Wilson. “Our success in improving environmental performance goes hand in hand with our focus on efficiency, which will help us stay competitive. We’re proud of where we are today, but we’re going to keep on going.”
