Bridgestone Americas Inc. is adding battery services at all of its Speedco locations. The all-inclusive battery service program includes free battery testing and the addition of Interstate Batteries to the service center’s product offering.

“Speedco is working to defeat downtime by providing owner-operators and fleets the essential products and solutions their trucks need matched with the best customer service possible,” says Chris Ripani, president of Speedco, a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC. “Batteries are an important part of that equation. Our free battery testing and the addition of battery replacement to our service offering will continue to make Speedco a convenient and trusted provider in the trucking industry.”

All 51 Speedco locations will now offer Interstate Group 31 Commercial Truck batteries. Designed to maximize mileage with little maintenance, the manufacturer says Interstate Batteries meet or exceed original equipment (OE) specifications. Battery features include:

  • maintenance-free design to endure the tough demands of the road;
  • high cycling technology to maximize performance and battery life;
  • vibration protection to protect against extreme heat and vibration;
  • suitcase handle for easy installation; and
  • single-port vent system for minimal water loss.

Speedco says it plans to expand its footprint to bring full-service solutions to truckers in more high-traffic areas. To learn more about Speedco, visit
