Goodyear Celebrates 125 Years

Company History


In 1898, Frank Seiberling borrowed $3,500 from his brother-in-law and used it on a down payment for an old strawboard factory on East Market Street in Akron, Ohio. On August 29 of that year, Goodyear was officially incorporated. And on August 29, 2023, Goodyear will celebrate its 125-year anniversary.
