Located at booth 31089, Bridgestone will showcase the benefits of using products backed by integrated technologies to drive increased productivity for customers.

"Customers are looking for a competitive advantage and need partners who go beyond the standard product offering, and instead deliver service solutions that make their business, and ultimately mobility, more efficient," said Rob Seibert, executive director, OTR sales, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO). 

"Technology is changing the way we all do business, and AGG1 provides Bridgestone with a great opportunity to engage with our aggregates and construction customers to demonstrate the value of tools - such as tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) and data management platforms - to help site owners anticipate, and even avoid, unplanned downtime. For example, at AGG1 we will be showcasing the Bridgestone PressureStat system, which provides instantaneous tire pressure and temperature data as well as wireless, in-cab systems updates. In addition, we'll demonstrate how it integrates with the Bridgestone TreadStat system to help forecast future needs and build efficiencies for our customers."

In the booth, Bridgestone will feature the following offerings:

PressureStat Tire Pressure Monitoring System - Launched at AGG1 2018, PressureStat provides instant access to important tire pressure and temperature data for OTR tires in the construction, quarry, underground hard rock and port industries. PressureStat allows customers to accurately manage tire pressure in real time, maximizing efficiency and lowering the risk of unplanned downtime.

TreadStat Tire and Rim Management Platform - The TreadStat tire and rim management platform allows owners and operators to monitor, optimize and report on their tires from anywhere in the world. Through the use of a customizable dashboard, TreadStat turns tire and rim related data into actionable insights to help avoid tire-related downtime.

Quarry Segment Products - On average, Bridgestone quarry customers are moving 1,000 tons per second - and they need to move it safely and efficiently. Bridgestone OTR tires for the quarry customer feature innovative tread patterns and a reinforced design to reduce sidewall damage and keep drivers and equipment moving, while meeting the harsh job site demands.
