Bridgestone Americas buys Azuga

Bridgestone Americas has purchased Azuga Holdings, Inc., a TCIA corporate member company based in Fremont, California, that offers a GPS fleet-management platform.

Founded in 2012, Azuga has developed a fleet-management platform with GPS tracking, video telematics, driver-
behavior management and accident-reduction solutions for insurers.

The Azuga fleet-management platform, which includes safety and fleet-management tools, will complement the existing Bridgestone portfolio of cloud-based fleet-mobility solutions. Bridgestone will leverage Azuga’s fleet-data-capture platform to advance the development of Bridgestone core tire products and AI solutions.

“Azuga is revolutionizing the way fleets do business in the U.S., with class-leading software and a rapid innovation process that will further advance Bridgestone’s vision to be a sustainable-solutions company,” says Paolo Ferrari, global chief solutions business officer, Bridgestone Corp., and president and CEO of Bridgestone Americas.

Azuga will maintain its headquarters in Silicon Valley. All Azuga employees and facilities across the U.S. and India will join Bridgestone.
