Goodyear a Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovator
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has been named a Thomson Reuters 2013 Top 100 Global Innovator for the third successive year. “This recognition is further evidence of Goodyear’s ability to drive innovation,” stated chairman and chief executive officer Richard J Kramer. One of the world’s oldest tyre manufacturers, Goodyear has a lengthy history of innovations, including the first all-season radial tyre and environmentally friendly concepts like the use of soybean oil and BioIsoprene in tyres.
“The market-back approach we take to delivering new products is a critical focus for us in the competitive global tire industry and helps us align our R&D efforts with Goodyear’s global strategy. This ultimately helps us deliver sustainable value to the marketplace.”
“The Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators once again prove that they are the companies driving growth, creating jobs and pioneering new products and services,” said David Brown, managing director, Thomson Reuters IP Solutions.
