LONGVIEW, Texas – Stemco and the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company officially reached a trademark license agreement Dec. 18.
The agreement follows Stemco’s acquisition of the manufacturer of Goodyear® Air Springs for truck, trailer, truck cab suspension products and cab seat springs, and gives the company the authority to continue using Goodyear trademarks and brand names when marketing and selling the air springs product line.
“Goodyear® Air Springs are regarded as the highest quality, most respected air springs in the commercial trucking industry,” said Todd Anderson, president of Stemco. “Continuing to use the brand name lets us maintain consistency and familiarity in the air springs market as the new supplier of these trusted products. We’re glad they are now part of the Stemco family.”
In addition to Goodyear Air Springs, Stemco also acquired the manufacturer of Super Cushion and Spring Ride brands from ContiTech in July 2015.
Stemco manufactures heavy-duty components and solutions for the commercial vehicle market, with offices in Canada, China, Mexico and various U.S. states.
