Goodyear Luxembourg: An integrated industrial complex

Goodyear in Colmar-Berg is an integrated industrial complex which is complemented by various plants and installations. It is Goodyear’s most diversified complex outside the United States. The main part of the complex is the Tire Plant, which started in 1951. Today, it has become a European production and distribution centre for truck and earthmover tires.

The Goodyear Mold Plant manufactures aluminium and steel molds for the vulcanization presses. Synthetic fabric is reinforced in the Regional Calendaring Centre. Both units deliver their products to the European tire plants of the group.

In order to be able to offer high-quality products, in-depth research and development is necessary. For this purpose the Goodyear Innovation Centre Luxembourg (GIC*L) was set up in 1957. Together with the GIC*A (Akron), it spearheads Goodyear’s research and development throughout the world.

With approximately 3,100 associates, Goodyear is today the number two industrial employer in Luxembourg.
