"Improving the capabilities and flexibility of (our) tire plants, increasing operating efficiencies and targeting profitable sales growth" will continue to be Bridgestone Corp.'s focus in 2006, according to company officials.

Bridgestone's Bridgestone Americas Holding Inc. subsidiary will concentrate on building its sales of higher margin passenger, light truck, truck and bus tires, "as well as sales growth in its retail and diversified products businesses, and in its Latin American operations."

Bridgestone is forecasting that all of its business units -- including its North American tire business -- will achieve a profit before tax in 2006.
