Goodyear is one of the world's largest tire companies, with operations in most regions of the world. Together with its subsidiaries and joint ventures, Goodyear develops, markets and sells tires for most applications. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1898 by 38-year-old Frank Seiberling. He purchased the 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. Today, Goodyear measures sales of nearly $20 billion, but we began in a converted strawboard factory in Ohio. Leading the industry for over one hundred years, they've accomplished many firsts that reflect a drive, skill, and total commitment to their ideals and industry.
