Company Profile
On August 3, 1900, the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in Akron, Ohio. In those initial days, they introduced the solid rubber sidewire tire as one of the first Firestone products. On December 27, Harvey S. Firestone Jr. was lifted into the air to pull the engine switch that put the first Firestone factory in operation. Firestone began manufacturing its own tires for the first time in 1903, and by late summer of the next year, they’d developed the first mechanically-fastened, straight-sided pneumatic automobile tire. In 1906, Firestone delivered 2,000 sets of tires to the Ford Motor Company. It was the largest single order for tires places by the auto industry to date, and would start a business partnership that would last for decades. A few years later in 1909, Firestone began manufacturing tire rims.
