Bridgestone Canada Recognized for Job Creation

Bridgestone Canada Inc.’s passenger and light truck tire manufacturing facility in Joliette, Quebec, was recognized as a significant job creator in its region.

Bridgestone Canada Inc.’s passenger and light truck tire manufacturing facility in Joliette, Quebec, was recognized as a significant job creator in the Lanaudière region during the Prix Créateurs d’emplois du Quebec Awards Gala on Oct. 4.

This honor demonstrates Bridgestone’s exemplary contribution to innovation and economic sustainability in the region, and for providing a safe and innovative working environment for its 1,300 teammates.

“Our plant ranks as the largest private employer in the Lanaudière region” said Robert Verreault, general manager of the Bridgestone Joliette plant. “This award is a testament to our plant providing quality jobs in a safe and innovative work environment for more than 50 years.”

According to Verreault, this recognition is a great opportunity to recruit new employees, especially since the Bridgestone plant in Joliette is currently recruiting for different positions.

The Prix Créateurs d’emplois was created to highlight the important contribution of leading job creators to the economic development of Quebec and its 17 administrative regions. The award celebrates the creation, maintenance and exceptional growth of quality jobs from a sustainable development perspective.

Currently, the Joliette plant, which produces passenger and light truck tires, is in the midst of an estimated CA$300 million multi-phase expansion project which broke ground in 2016. This expansion will help the plant produce larger diameter tires to fit today’s pickup trucks and SUVs, as well as increase productivity.
