Firestone Complete Auto Care is chain of Tire and Automotive service stores that are designed to make the process of auto maintenance, tire and repair a more pleasant experience to the customer. Founded in 1900 by Harvey Firestone, they were a pioneer in the mass production of tires, and were the original equipment supplier to Henry Ford’s Ford Motor Company. Firestone was purchased in 1988 by the Japanese based Bridgestone Corporation, the world’s largest tire manufacturer, though they still operate as Firestone stores. Firestone currently operates 1,600 stores and has an S&P credit rating of BBB+. With an emphasis on customer service, the stores occupy/build service center buildings in the 7,000 square foot range with 8-10 repair bays. They prefer to own their real estate but will consider ground lease opportunities. SullivanHayes represents Firestone in the Connecticut, western Massachusetts and Albany, NY markets.
