Frank Seiberling founded Goodyear in 1898 with a down payment he borrowed from a brother-in-law. The first few employees manufactured bicycle and carriage tires, horseshoe pads, and poker chips. The arrival of the automobile, and a key partnership with Henry Ford, helped business take off. By 1910, Goodyear was outfitting the Model T with tires and had already manufactured its first aircraft tire. The company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange from 1927 until it moved its listing to the NASDAQ on December 18, 2012. Over the years, Goodyear launched several new products and developed into one of the world’s top tire companies.
