BANDEN (=tires) B.F. Goodrich

B.F. Goodrich was born as Goodrich, Tew & Co on the last day of 1870: the first rubber manufacturer west of the Appalachians.
The company was renamed B.F. Goodrich in 1874. The founder Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich died in 1888.
They started with bicycle tires but went to automobiles very early. In order to expand the market, Goodrich published maps and guidebooks, put directional signs in place and, together with other rubber manufacturers, took part in the good roads movement promoting highway improvements. All to encourage driving.
Later, Goodrich products became important in the aircraft industry. Lindbergh's Spirit was fitted with Goodrich tires!
The company is a member of the Michelin Group since 1989.

In 1853 Hiram Hutchinson sets up production in Châlette-sur-Loing near Montargis in France. Having the exclusive rights to use Goodyear's patent he produced waterproof shoes, boots and clothes under the brand name A L'Aigle. Seven years later he starts a second plant in Germany. During the 1920s Aigle started production of industrial belts and car mats: that was the branch which would become the tires Hutchinson. In the 1960s Aigle bought out the Kléber-Colombes plant.
