The rubber meets the road in Eloy

Eloy Enterprise

Bridgestone Corporation has announced a guayule research farm in Eloy to be operated in conjunction with a process research center in Mesa.

The project to advance usage of the desert rubber-producing plant is planned by Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations in collaboration with the Tokyo-based parent company. BATO has completed acquisition of a 281-acre agricultural site in Eloy to serve as the base of its agricultural research operation. This research farm will supply guayule for a process research center that is planned for Mesa.

“This was an important step in the realization of our guayule research activities, and we are excited to have found a base of operations for our researchers,” said Bill Niaura, director of new business development for Bridgestone Americas Inc. “Every step we take brings us closer to our ultimate goal of developing new, domestic and sustainable sources for natural rubber; we look forward to breaking ground and getting started soon.”
