The Company, along with its subsidiaries, is principally engaged in the development, manufacture, distribution and sale of tires and related products and services worldwide. Goodyear also manufactures and markets rubber-related chemicals for range of applications.

The Plant Prospector is a weekly e-mail service that identifies national, regional, and local plants and businesses in transition through layoffs, closings, and work force reductions. A reduction in the number of employees is an indication of a current or imminent change in the operations of an enterprise and is invaluable in identifying companies including private firms, small public companies, and subsidiaries of major corporations that are in flux. Plant Prospector is an ideal prospecting tool for firms that provide services to businesses in transition, such as temporary employment agencies and outplacement firms, and for companies whose business may be affected by change, such as suppliers, professional firms, and insurance companies.
