Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Springfield
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 behind when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped construct today's modern transportation industry. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires.
