Goodyear built its first office building, a two-story structure, on East Market Street in 1900. Additional factory and office buildings, including the landmark Old Guard clock tower, were constructed in 1915. The Akron Innovation Center was built as a factory known as "Plant Two" in 1916 and renovated in 1978 to become the company's global technical center.
Goodyear is one of the world's largest tire companies. Founded in Akron, Ohio in 1898, it employs about 69,000 people and manufactures its products in 52 facilities in 22 countries around the world. For more information about Goodyear and its products, go to www.goodyear.com/corporate.
