Goodyear is one of the world’s largest tyre companies and manufactures its products in more than 57 facilities in 23 countries around the world.
Goodyear’s three Innovation Centres – in Akron, Ohio; Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg; and Pulandian, China – create leading technologies, products and services that anticipate the mobility and sustainability needs of consumers and fleets.
Goodyear has been operating in Australia since 1915 when it formed a distribution company, based in Sydney. It quickly expanded as it established a Melbourne office, and soon after had distribution arrangements in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and New Zealand.
Goodyear & Dunlop Tyres Australia (GDT) has grown into one of Australia’s leading tyre marketers, wholesalers and retailers.
Recently, GDT has rolled out its newest offering, Goodyear Fleet, to help fleets of trucks, buses, waste vehicles and their drivers keep rolling. Goodyear Fleet as a commercial tyre and service partner of operations managing fleets delivers trusted products, reliable services and tech-driven tyre management tools nation-wide.
Goodyear constantly researches new technologies, identifies opportunities for further collaboration and utilises its team’s passion to not only demonstrate its capabilities to produce sustainable-material tyres but to also showcase Goodyear’s innovation and commitment to building a better future.
The Goodyear stand at the Brisbane Truck Show features the company’s Better Future vision, focusing on high-priority sustainability pillars, such as advanced mobility, sustainable sourcing, responsible operations, and inspiring culture.
