BFGoodrich to Change Name and Logo
March 6, 2001
Fifteen years after exiting the tire business, the BFGoodrich Company, Charlotte, NC, plans to change its name and logo to signify its focus on the aerospace industry. The company will seek shareholder approval on April 17 to change its legal name to Goodrich Corp., effective June 1. Goodrich Chairman and Chief Executive David Burner said the changes will allow the company to distance itself from its former tire business and reflect its focus on manufacturing aerospace components, systems, and services.
