Goodyear South Africa’s new HQ
While Goodyear celebrates ‘120 Years of Innovation’ in 2018, in South Africa the company is also celebrating moving to a new headquarters at the Hertford Office Park in Midrand. Goodyear South Africa has consolidated its Johannesburg-based offices to support the dompany’s business strategy of business simplification, increased efficiencies and enabling effective employee engagement.
According to Goodyear representatives, the new office’s open plan design is “essential for letting natural light into the workspace, creating a refreshing and energising work environment”. Furthermore, the building is an eco-friendly facility that has all the features of a green star building such as energy efficient lighting; energy efficient air conditioning; back-up water and power supply.
“This move has contributed to Goodyear South Africa having a lean, agile operation that enables our ‘One Team’ strategic principles and behaviours. Our employees are core in creating an agile and innovative organisation that sets the technology and performance standard for the fast-paced, dynamic industry we operate in. The consolidation of our Johannesburg based offices into this new office location, provides an empowering environment for our teams to continue working together in creating products and services that contribute to memorable experiences for vehicle and truck owners in every corner of Africa,” stated Darren Hayes-Powell, Group Managing Director for Goodyear South Africa and Sub-Sharan Africa.
The offices that have now found a new home at the Hertford Office Park include Trentyre staff who were based in Germiston, Goodyear group managing director, Goodyear Sub-Saharan Africa team and support staff who were based at the International Business Gateway in Midrand, as well the Consumer Sales Team that was based at Hi-Q Head Office in Spartan. The Hi-Q Head Office will soon be moving to the Motor City at Waterfall in Midrand, which will be in close proximity to the new Goodyear South Africa offices.
