The B.F. Goodrich Company was founded in Akron, Ohio in 1870 as Goodrich, Tew & Co. by Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich.

The company name was changed to the "B.F. Goodrich Company" in 1880, to BF Goodrich in the 1980s, and to "Goodrich Corporation" in 2001.

The company grew to be one of the largest tyre and rubber manufacturers in the world, helped in part by the 1986 merger with Uniroyal.

Specialising in tyres for SUVs and off road vehicles BF Goodrich comes highly recommended.
