Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Elkton
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. In the years after World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped build today's modern transportation industry.
