The BFGoodrich Company History

Here you will find a few highlights of our proud 129-year history.

Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich establishes the first rubber company west of the Allegheny Mountains, leading to Akron, Ohio, becoming the Rubber Capital of the World.

Goodrich establishes one of the first research labs in the United States.

Goodrich scientist Dr. Waldo Semon plasticizes polyvinyl chloride (PVC) giving birth to the multi-billion-dollar worldwide vinyl industry.

Charles Lindbergh electrified the world when he flew nonstop from New York to Paris. His plane was equipped with Goodrich airplane tires.

After years of intensive research, BFGoodrich scientists discover a way to produce synthetic rubber. This breakthrough helps the United States win World War II, as the nation's supply of natural rubber was cut off.

BFGoodrich revolutionizes the tire industry by inventing the tubeless tire.

America's first astronauts came to BFGoodrich for the suits that would protect them in outer space.

BFGoodrich exits the tire business.

BFGoodrich celebrates its 125th anniversary. Now building on its strengths in aerospace and performance materials, BFGoodrich is a company with a proud heritage and an exciting future.

A $1.3 billion merger with Rohr nearly doubles the size of BFG's aerospace segment and makes it a leading producer of aircraft nacelle systems.

The BFGoodrich Company's vision.
