General Tire History

1984-2002
GenCorp came into being on March 29, 1984, when the shareholders of the General Tire & Rubber Company approved the company's proposal for a change of names and the establishment of GenCorp Inc. as the parent holding company.

1937-1983
In the mid-1940s, the U.S. government faced a critical World War II-related tire shortage. More plants were needed and General Tire – like other companies – agreed to help. It selected a Waco, Texas, site for its second U.S. facility.

1915-1937
The General Tire and Rubber Company was founded on Sept. 29, 1915, by William F. O’Neil and his partner, Winfred E. Fouse, as an outgrowth of the Western Tire & Rubber company, a Kansas City concern organized by the two young Akron businessmen.
