Cooper Tires is a major American tire manufacturing company with a history that goes back to 1914. Known originally as M and M Manufacturing Company based in Akron, OH, the company went through several acquisitions and moves before finally landing in Findlay, OH, after merging with The Cooper Corporation in 1930. The Cooper company has had a long history both in the United States and abroad. It invested heavily in manufacturing many rubber-based items for the military during World War II. In 1997, it branched out into the United Kingdom with the purchase of Avon Tyres, a tire manufacturer for motorcycles, motor racing and more. In the 2000s, Cooper even invested heavily in a Chinese tire manufacturing company. To this day, Cooper makes a quarter of its yearly tire sales in China. While the company was nearly bought out in 2013, the deal fell through, and Cooper Tires remains as one of the few American-based tire manufacturers with nearly $3 billion in revenue in 2016. Cooper has become a well-known brand throughout the United States as it has partnered with numerous organizations throughout the years. Today, it is a sponsor of the Professional Bull Riders, the USF 2000 Championship and the Indy Pro 2000 among many others. Cooper Tires remains dedicated to the advancement of innovation in the field. The company’s Global Technical Center works hard to improve tire technology. In addition, Cooper is committed to safety and provides limited and mileage warranties to ensure customer peace of mind.
