Akron, Ohio – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has been recognised as the world’s most admired motor vehicle parts company by Fortune magazine.
Goodyear topped the list of leading companies from around the world in five of the nine key attributes evaluated: people management, use of assets, social responsibility, long-term investment and product/service quality.
“This recognition is a credit to the hard work of 69,000 Goodyear associates around the world,” said Richard J. Kramer, Goodyear chairman and CEO. “It validates the success of our strategy roadmap and serves as a meaningful mile marker on our journey toward creating sustainable value.”
