Goodyear is present in India since 1922. It is presently working with two plants, one each in Ballabgarh and Aurangabad. The company is engaged in the manufacturing and marketing automotive tyres, tubes and flaps. Automotive tyres include farm, truck and passenger tyres. Other products of the company include tubes/flaps, rubber products and two- and three-wheeler tyres.
Goodyear has a tyre for every type of driving condition. Today's most exciting new cars use wider, lower-profile tyres to enhance both their handling and looks. This type of tyre places a priority on aggressive traction and response. In the past, that meant limited capabilities in poor weather, significant compromises in ride comfort and tread life. Now, a wide range of Goodyear tyres, including the new Eagle ultra-high performance and Excellence radials, deliver outstanding performance, all-season capability, and uncompromised comfort and tyre life.
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company started in 1898 when Frank Seiberling purchased the company's first plant using money he borrowed from his brother-in-law. The rubber and cotton had to be transported from halfway around the world, to a landlocked town that had only limited rail transportation. Seiberling named the company after the courageous pioneer Charles Goodyear, the discoverer of vulcanisation. He also determined the distinctive winged-foot trademark that remains a symbolic link with the company's past.
