The Cooper® name has a proud and storied heritage that goes back more than 100 years to 1914, when brothers-in-law John F. Schaefer and Claude E. Hart purchased M and M Manufacturing Company in Akron, producing tire patches, tire cement and tire repair kits. A year later, Schaefer and Hart purchased The Giant Tire & Rubber Company of Akron, a tire rebuilding business, and two years later moved the business to Findlay, Ohio.
The origins of the Cooper® name go back to 1920, when Ira J. Cooper, a director for the company Schaefer and Hart founded, formed the Cooper Corporation.
The firm changed its name to Cooper Tire & Rubber Company in 1946 and today employs more than 10,300 people and operates in more than one dozen countries around the world.

Dunlop started one day in 1888 when John Boyd Dunlop was watching his son ride his tricycle. Dunlop noticed how rough the ride was because the tires were treaded with metal. So Dunlop glued together the edges of two strips of rubber to make a tube, and then he inflated it with air from a soccer ball pump. Dunlop had invented the first pneumatic rubber tire, which offered a smoother ride than a solid rubber tire, and the modern tire as we know it was born.
With his new invention, Dunlop opened his first tire plant in Dublin in 1889. A tire factory opened in Birmingham, England two years later, and the Dunlop Rubber Company was born. Dunlop continued his work by inventing tires capable of accelerating over 200 miles per hour by 1920, which opened new doors for the company on the racetrack. The Dunlop Rubber Company also designed Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology (DSST) tires, created to support a vehicle’s entire weight even when the tire is punctured or completely flat.
