Bridgestone to start test production in Q4
Test production at Japanese tyre producer Bridgestone's expanded unit in Tatabánya, northwest Hungary, is expected to start in in Q4 this year, Hungarian business daily Napi Gazdaság announced today.
Test production will last several months and serial production is scheduled for next summer, plant director Fernando del Cerro said in an interview to the newspaper.
