The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1898 by Frank A. Seiberling. The 38-year-old founder, purchased the company's first plant with a $3,500 down payment using money he borrowed from a brother-in-law. The rubber and cotton that were the lifeblood of the industry had to be transported from halfway around the world, to a landlocked town that had only limited rail transportation.

With just 13 employees, Goodyear production began on November 21, 1898, with a product line of bicycle and carriage tyres, horseshoe pads and befitting the gamble Seiberling was making, poker chips. Since the first bicycle tyre in 1898, Goodyear pedalled its way toward becoming the world's largest tyre company, a title it earned in 1916 when it adopted the slogan "More people ride on Goodyear tires than on any other kind," becoming the world's largest rubber company in 1926.

Today, Goodyear measures sales of nearly $20 billion, although it took 53 years before the company reached the first billion-dollar-year milestone. And it all began in a converted strawboard factory on the banks of the Little Cuyahoga River in East Akron, Ohio. Spanning the years, through all of those yesterdays, a legion of firsts and facts and figures appears that reflect the making of a company.
