Bridgestone off-road tires increases prices 2 to 7 percent
Off Road Tire, U.S. & Canada Tire Sales (BAOR), a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC, says it plans to increase list prices by 2 to 7 percent with some in-line adjustments. The price increases affect all mining, construction, and industrial tires marketed by BAOR. The price increases were effective as of Sept. 1.
“We continue to search for new, innovative, and efficient ways to bring the best product for the best price to all dealers,” says Shawn Rasey, president of BAOR, in a written statement. “At this point, we’ve been unable to completely offset rising raw material, energy, and transportation costs with improved efficiencies and, therefore, we find it necessary to increase prices on our off-the-road tires.”
