Company employees recently celebrated the opening of the Bridgestone Tower in downtown Nashville. Located at 2004th Avenue South, the 514,000ft2 (156667.2m2) 30-story tower is home to more than 1,700 employees.
“This is a historic day for Bridgestone and our teammates – we’re proud to call this great city home and see the Bridgestone Tower standing tall in the Nashville skyline,” said Knapp. “This effort was only made possible due to the tremendous support we have from Nashville city leadership and Tennessee state leadership, and the Nashville community. Additionally, through the relentless work of our teammates and partners, Bridgestone Tower has come to life.”
Bridgestone has also signed a five-year extension to its naming rights agreement for Bridgestone Arena, home of the Nashville Predators. The existing agreement, which also includes a marketing partnership with the Predators, began in 2010 and will now continue into 2025.
“We are expanding an investment in Nashville that began 25 years ago. Nashville and Bridgestone have made an incredible team since we first moved here in 1992. The city has been good to us, and we strive to be a good community partner and neighbor in the places where we work, live and play. As our presence continues to grow, we will continue to actively support downtown and other communities throughout the region with volunteerism, board leadership, philanthropy and activities that contribute to growth and vitality for years to come,” Knapp added.
