New discoveries become new technologies and new technologies become new products to give you a better driving experience. Innovation is not just something we do; it’s who we are and who we’ve always been since 1898.
Our culture of creation has given us everything from our very brand – we’re named after Charles Goodyear, inventor of the vulcanisation process – to the reputation for excellence that’s made us one of the world’s largest tyre manufacturers.
At Goodyear Research, our scientists are proud to draw on over 100 years of innovation in discovery, design and manufacturing for the inspiration that fuels today’s research.
Our culture of innovation isn’t just confined to the history books, it still lives on today in the work of our worldwide teams of Goodyear Research engineers and scientists who are not only at the forefront of rubber and polymer science but also in diverse fields including computing, physics and mathematics.Our researchers are responsible for thousands of patents, with our inventions and breakthroughs used not only in tyres but also in areas including adhesives, food packaging and even artificial hearts.
We’ve never lost sight of what we do best – developing brilliant new tyre technologies for the needs of today’s driver. From tyres that deliver excellent performance under the toughest of hard driving conditions, to long-lasting tyres that save you money at the fuel pump, we put the driver first in everything we do.
Our Goodyear Innovative Technologies include:
The work continues. Goodyear Research scientists continue to innovate – focusing on a future that not only prioritises the development of high-performance tyres, but also reflects the need for responsible production in a world of dwindling resources. We’re also working hard on more environmentally friendly products, with the Biolsoprene™ concept tyre – a tyre made of renewable biomass – unveiled at the 2012 Climate Conference in Copenhagen. We innovate. We always have, and we always will.
