The American Companies That Aren’t Actually American Anymore


Firestone was founded by Harvey Firestone in 1900 and became one of the top leading tire and rubber companies in America. Harvey had a close friendship with Henry Ford and struck a deal with him to supply Ford with tires and rubber. This made Firestone one of the biggest automotive companies in America, and it still has a good reputation to this day.

Firestone stayed as an American company for over 88 years before Japanese-owned company Bridgestone Corporation bought it out in 1988. Although the company is not American-owned anymore, they still offer quality services. Firestone helped Bridgestone grow, and the two companies are still around today.
