AMERICAN TIRES. GLOBAL PROGRESS.
Becoming an icon of American agricultural history is not an easy task. In the case of Firestone, it
stretches back to the day in 1945 when the Firestone tire plant in Des Moines, lowa began to
produce tires for the U.S. military. Today, that story continues as the Des Moines plant produces
600,000 tires every year that are shipped to 120 countries. It is a crucial provider to agriculture,
forestry and construction industries around the world. But at no point have we ever lost sight of our
primary focus - the American Farmer.
MAKING THE TIRES THAT HELP AMERICA FARM.
Farm equipment keeps getting bigger so the burden on the tires increases as well. Our engineers continue to develop tires that fit the changing need of the farmer allowing for higher yields and maximization in the fields. And that is what keeps the American farmer going.
