Harvey Firestone’s Vision

The Firestone Tire and Rubber Company was founded by Harvey S. Firestone in 1900. In the early days, they supplied pneumatic tires for wagons, buggies, and other forms of wheeled transportation common in the era. Firestone soon saw the massive potential for marketing automobile tires. Before long, under his leadership, the company became a leading mass producer of tires.
