  • When was Myers Industries founded?

    Myers Industries was founded in Akron, Ohio in 1933, when two brothers saw an opportunity in the tire repair and retread industry. Meyer and Louis Myers' partnership was based on a $620 loan, some merchandise and a used pick-up truck. From their small storefront, the brothers were dedicated to selling "everything for the tire dealer", including tire repair patches and hand tools. To learn more, view the Company Timeline.

    In 1946, as Myers Tire Supply expanded, the brothers started two manufacturing operations: Patch Rubber Company, to produce ready-made tire patches; and Akro-Mils, to produce plastic and metal storage products.
