It's now a fact CONTITECH has taken over Veyance Technologies per 1.2.2015
To our customers:
As already advised at an earlier stage the take over of Veyance Technologies through Contitech is a fact now.
What does it mean:
The brand name GOODYEAR will disappear from hose products within the near future and will be replaced by the CONTITECH Logo.
The manufacturing plants in the USA and Canada will remain unchanged.
The products coming out of these plants will remain unchanged in quality,
construction and price and distribution agreements. Only the name changes!
Due to Trade Mark issues with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company two hose types in our range will change name :
HORIZON will become FRONTIER
WINGFOOT will become VARIFLEX
HI-MILER will become BLUXTREME
For a certain amount of time we will have Goodyear branded product on stock which consecutively will by replaced by CONTITECH branded products. Our sales can and will inform about effective branding on the products.
