Bridgestone reveals ‘Webfleet Solutions’ as the new company name for the recently acquired telematics business, TomTom Telematics.
The acquisition of TomTom Telematics was motivated by Bridgestone’s ambition to strengthen its digital capabilities, as part of its ongoing transformation from a premium tire producer into a mobility solutions leader. The company said the acquisition has reinforced its footprint in data-based solutions that make fleet operations more effective and efficient.
“When we acquired Webfleet Solutions at the beginning of the year, we created a fleet solutions powerhouse. Together we have every capability to lead in what is an incredibly exciting, fast growing, and innovative area of mobility. We have the ambition, the infrastructure and resources, the data and insights, and we have the people and their unrivalled knowledge. As the new worlds of connected and autonomous mobility rapidly become a reality, together Bridgestone and Webfleet Solutions will ensure that our customers can enjoy every benefit of this new era,” CEO and President of Bridgestone EMEA said.
