Significance: Goodyear Rubber Company was the first tire manufacturing company on the West Coast. By the mid-1920's, other tire companies followed Goodyear's lead and established facilities on the West Coast. With the added impetus provided by the presence of these major manufacturing industries, other smaller support industries and plants sprang up, providing materials, service and equipment. In 1928, with Goodyear and three other large rubber companies, Los Angeles became the second greatest rubber manufacturing center in the United States. Despite economic setbacks that occasionally plagues other industries, Goodyear-California continued to grow and justify all expectations of the parent company in Akron. By 1941, the Goodyear-California plant was supplying 11 western states, Alaska, and Hawaii with a maximum production of 15,000 tires daily, and employing 1500 to 2500 workers.
