Bridgestone Americas announced plans to restart its North American commercial tire plants as well as its North American Firestone industrial products and Firestone building products manufacturing facilities April 13.

Manufacturing was halted March 19.

The start-up plans reflect the performance trend in several key areas of its commercial and diversified products businesses not as severely affected by the current crisis, according to the Nashville, Tenn.-based company. To ensure the health and safety of its employees, plants resuming operations will do so in alignment with the latest safety guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
