Commenting on the new partnership, Chet Patel, president Continental Europe at Global Services, BT, stated, “I am proud that Bridgestone Europe has entrusted us with the strategic building blocks of their ICT operations. At BT, we see digital transformation as empowering people – customers, businesses and employees – to do amazing things. We call this making the Digital Possible.”   

BT revealed that will securely connect 150 retail stores and more than 50 offices, manufacturing plants and testing facilities using both BT’s global IP Connect virtual private network and its high performance Internet service.
