Goodyear Looks For Bigger Launches
(Akron/Tire Review) Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is looking to launch a number of new products by the end of this year that will be “more impactful” than its already popular Assurance and upgraded Fortera and Wrangler lines. So said Bob Keegan during a briefing with analysts after revealing the company’s first half results.
While he would not elaborate, Keegan told analysts, “We have more impactful products that will be introduced later this year.” Goodyear said sales of its Assurance line are well ahead of last year’s, and its revised Fortera and Wrangle light truck/SUV tyres are selling faster than its Assurance tyres. .
