Goodyear closing Latin America headquarters, moving jobs from Brazil to USA

Posted by Juan Gavasa on December 16, 2014

Over the next year, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. will close its Latin American headquarters in Brazil and move 30 to 50 jobs to Akron. The company will close its regional office in Sao Paolo, Goodyear spokesman Keith Price said. The positions that moved there from Akron in 2005 will return.

Goodyear's Brazil headquarters there will remain open, however.

Price said the company hopes to improve efficiency and allow its Latin America regional executives better access to resources at Goodyear's new global Akron headquarters, which opened in 2013. "Moving the regional leadership team out of Brazil will ensure a balanced focus on countries and clusters where we want to grow," Price said.
