Bridgestone unlikely to change stance on Bari closure

Tokyo, March 8 - Tire-maker Bridgestone is unlikely to change its plan to close its factory in the southern Italian city of Bari next year, according to sources close to the Japanese company. The closure of the plant, which makes car tires in the Modugno suburb of Bari, will throw 950 people out of work if, as announced, it takes place in the first half of next year. ''We are waiting for the date, that is the only thing I can say for now'', said Bridgestone's Chief Communications Officer Makoto Shiomi. The Bari plant is one of eight in Europe owned by Bridgestone.
