Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia Pty Ltd (BMSA) was formed in January 2018 when two companies, Bridgestone Earthmover Tyres Pty Ltd (BSEM) and Bridgestone Engineered Products of Asia Sdn Bhd, Australia Branch (BSEA AU), were united into one company. Prior to the integration, BSEM and BSEA AU had historical roots in Australia dating back some 40 years.
The integration provided BMSA with the platform to offer comprehensive customer solutions and a wider range of products and services to its valued customers. The product range previously offered under BSEA AU includes conveyor belts, hydraulic hoses, marine fenders, rubber tracks and other bespoke rubber products. Their services include conveyor belt splicing and quality assurance. These products and services complement the existing range of products and services offered by BSEM including off-the-road (OTR) tyre supply, OTR tyre repairs, wheel and rim supply, refurbishment and repair, OTR fitting and On-Site-Service (OSS).
As a result, BMSA now offers an unprecedented total mobility, pit-to-port solution package for the mining, industrial and construction industries, demonstrating its commitment to creating value for its customers.
