Default Goodyear Tires

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1898 when Frank Sayberling bought the first factory for the money borrowed from his brother. Rubber and cotton had to be transported from the Down Under and the shuttle service was limited. So Sayberling created the company and gave it the name of the brave researcher Charles Goodyear who discovered vulcanization. Sayberling also invented the distinctive company symbol – a winged sandal that still symbolically mediates the company with its past.

At first Goodyear Company that produced tires for bicycles, carts and poker counters contained only a 13-person staff. The first month of the factory income made out 8246 dollars. The Goodyear Company made the long way from the first bicycle tire produced in 1898 to the hugest world tire company. The company got this title of honor in 1916. In 1926 Goodyear Tires was named as the biggest rubber company. These first legendary years made the running for the company’s work with clients too.
