NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 20, 2008) — The Tennessee Wildlife Federation (TWF) recognized Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire L.L.C.(BFNT) March 19 with its Industrial Conservationist of the Year Award.
The award was meant to recognize the efforts of members of the company's Monterrey, Mexico, plant, who last year worked with a local university and bird watching groups to develop the first Spanish-language bird watching guide for the state of Nuevo Leon.
“The guide Bridgestone/Firestone has created asserts the culture of caring for not only the people they employ but the communities and natural areas in which those employees live,” said Mike Butler, executive director of TWF.
The TWF presented the award to BFNT representatives at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville.
