About Us

Goodyear Rubber Products was founded in February of 1948 by Murray and Jackie Jacobs in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The business was a family affair; Murray’s mother handled the books, Jackie’s dad handled the customers, Jackie answered the phone and Murray loaded up his station wagon each morning with garden hose, matting, rainwear and gloves, circling his route of ‘Mom & Pop’ hardware stores.
As the years passed, Murray Jacobs offered his wide range of industrial rubber products to the neighboring cities and counties. The emergence of industry along the West Central coast of Florida inspired Murray to become a key supplier of a wide range of industrial rubber products for the region’s growing markets.
In 1986, Murray M. Jacobs passed away, and Jackie grabbed the reins with her son, Bob, at her side as they began moving toward expansion. Goodyear Rubber Products’ first satellite location was opened in 1991 and was quickly followed by multiple other locations.
Jackie passed away in 2000 and Bob continued to orchestrate the company’s growth. He expanded Goodyear Rubber Products’ exponentially with sales to 6 of the 7 continents (so far!) and an International presence that continues to surge to this day. The product mix has expanded to include compression and valve stem packings, expansion joints, mechanical seals and much more beyond the original core competency of industrial and hydraulic hose and fittings.
2002 brought about the opening of Goodyear Rubber Products, Inc. Belting Division, LLC, which specializes in heavy duty and lightweight conveyor belting, Power Transmission Products, lacing and vulcanization services, belt cleaners, adhering rubber to metal and rubber to rubber and attaching cleats, to name just a few of their specialties.
Goodyear Rubber Products, Inc. is your one-stop shop for industrial rubber and plastic products, regardless of where you are located.
