Goodyear is the No. 1 tire maker in North America and Latin America and is Europe’s second largest tire maker.
Goodyear was founded in 1898 by 38-year-old Frank Seiberling. He purchased our first plant with a $3,500 down payment using money he borrowed from a brother-in-law. The timing couldn't have been better. The bicycle craze of the 1890s was booming. The horseless carriage was a wide-open challenge. On Aug. 29, 1898, Goodyear was incorporated with a capital stock of $100,000. In 2012, Goodyear posted net sales of $21 billion.
Goodyear’s winged-foot trademark logo was inspired by a newel-post statuette of the Roman god Mercury in the home of Goodyear founder Frank Seiberling. Seiberling felt Mercury embodied many of the characteristics for which Goodyear products were known. For more information about Goodyear history click here
