The Thompson Reuters Top 100 Award goes  to the top 100 companies around the world, in industries including health-care, automotive, aerospace engineering, and telecommunication. This is the second year in a row that Goodyear has received that award.

Goodyear spokesman Kerry Christopher:

“Here in Akron, and in Luxemburg and Germany we have engineers that  are working on innovation that ranges from products that we have on the market today. So, for instance our Goodyear Assurance Triple-Tred All Season has innovative tread zones and evolving traction grooves so those sorts of things are all innovations that require patents.  So, again that is how Thompson Reuters is measuring us, with a number of patents that we are issuing.

 Christopher says future innovations will include air-maintenance technology to keep optimum pressure throughout the life of the  tire
