Charles Goodyear and Goodyear Tire Company

“Life,” Charles Goodyear wrote, “should not be estimated exclusively by the standard of dollars and cents. I am not disposed to complain that I have planted and others have gathered the fruits. A man has cause for regret only when he sows and no one reaps.” Modern humanity has reaped the benefits of his genius and experimentations. Rubber products act as tires, hoses, flooring, doormats, nonslip surfaces, wires covering, phone protectors, door stops, jar-lid gaskets and many more modern products.

Today’s Goodyear Rubber is an agile modern firm that excels in technological innovations. In the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company’s Eagle-360 concept tire has been named one of Time magazine’s “Best Inventions of the Year 2016.” The Goodyear Eagle-360 is a spherical-shaped design concept tire that would provide self-driving cars ultimate maneuverability, connectivity and biomimicry to increase safety. The tire's tread pattern mimics brain coral and is designed with multidirectional blocks and groves that work to work to ensure safe contact with the ground. Goodyear tire has 15 Billion Dollars in sales and a family of brands that include Goodyear, Sava, Kelly, Dunlap and Fulda. Goodyear manufactures its products in 47 facilities in 21 countries. It has marketing operations in almost every country around the world.

Playground Surfaces that Prioritize Safety

Quality playground-surfaces are vital for ensuring that your playground is safe. Of course, you already knew that. What makes our playground surfaces stand out, though, is that they are eco-friendly and affordably-priced—all while placing safety first.

Rubber playground-tiles like our “Eco-Safety 3-inch” tiles are extremely thick, offering a superlative degree of shock-absorbance. Because rubber naturally absorbs impacts, these tiles are designed to minimize the damaged caused to falling objects, as well as people. Our “Eco-Sport” playground surfaces are fall-height tested to safely cushion the blow of falls from up to 7 feet! This criterion is a legally-mandated requirement for most playgrounds, so—of course—we paid special attention to these items’ capacity for cushioning falls.

Another feature of our playground surfaces is that they are made of recycled rubber. Because most rubber materials are non-biodegradable, they typically end up in landfills once their lifespans expire. By repurposing these discarded rubbers, we play our part in minimizing the amount of damage the rubber industry inflicts upon the environment. This is a standard practice at our company, and we employ it whenever we can. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out! We have a large team of rubber-flooring experts ready for your consultation.

Join Us in Celebrating Goodyear’s 125th Anniversary!

2023 marks the 125th year since the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded. The company’s founder, Frank Seiberling, named his company after Charles Goodyear, the inventor of vulcanized rubber. And the name has stuck ever since.

In 1898, Frank Seiberling opened the first Goodyear factory in Akron, Ohio, focusing mainly on manufacturing bicycle and carriage tires. In 1901, Goodyear produced its first automobile tires for Henry Ford, who was manufacturing race cars. As the automobile industry grew and rubber’s demand increased, so did the popularity of Goodyear’s tires.

With 125 impressive years under Goodyear’s belt, join us here at Rubber-Cal in celebrating this momentous occasion. Over a century of innovation, ingenuity, and effort has kept the Goodyear company at the fore of the rubber industry. Goodyear does important work in continuing to popularize, as well as develop, rubber—not just as a finished product but as a basic material, too.

Here's to Goodyear. What a ride it has been, and continues to be.
