Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Waterbury
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. In addition to "Ship by Truck," Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped build the transportation industry as we know it. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires.
