The American Charles Goodyear started processing rubber and manufacturing many products mainly made of rubber, like shoes among other things. He was not able to control the quality, but he continued to experiment until he invented the vulcanized rubber by adding sulfur and other substances. That was much more durable, workable and stable. Many additions were tried before he could finally find out the perfect process to vulcanize the rubber. Brit Thomas Hancock understood and copied Goodyear's process from some rubber samples and ... filed the patent application 8 weeks earlier. It came to a trial, which Goodyear lost. Charles Goodyear died in 1860 and was deeply in debt. So he never knew anything about the world famous car tire brand that would have been named after him.
In 1898 Frank Seiberling founded a tire factory and in homage to the unfortunate Charles Goodyear, he named his tire brand after the inventor of vulcanized rubber.
Meanwhile, the Goodyear group has grown considerably with more than 50 factories in 22 countries and sales have increased to € 17 billion. Goodyear employs approximately 65,000 people, making it the third tire manufacturer in the world.
In addition to car tires, SUV tires, van tires, bus tires and truck tires, Goodyear also specializes in aircraft and agricultural vehicle tires. It definitely may be that even the rubber under your shoes also comes from Goodyear, because Goodyear manufactures almost everything when it comes to rubber. Fire hoses, shoe soles, parts for printers and so on.
