On Oct. 31st, 2003 Alfagomma and Goodyear signed an agreement that seals a strategic alliance between the Companies.
Since Goodyear has decided to expand into the hydraulics market, Alfagomma will provide Goodyear-branded hose and fittings for distribution in North America.
"We are combining Goodyear's brand recognition and highly-skilled, reliable North American distribution network, with Alfagomma's technically-advanced product design and development," said Brett Ponton, general marketing manager for Goodyear Engineered Products in North America. "Both companies are committed to quality and the success of their customers."
Goodyear found in Alfagomma a partner with the same sound principles and goals: serving customers, providing system solutions and growing business.
Goodyear has produced hydraulic hose for more than fifty years, but never filled out its lineup, until now. Alfagomma has been chosen to pursue this challenging strategy.
