Goodyear South Africa Has a New Home


Goodyear South Africa has consolidated its Johannesburg based offices by moving to a new Head Office at the Hertford Office Park in Midrand in order to support the company's business strategy of business simplification, increased efficiencies and enabling effective employee engagement.

New Head Office for Goodyear South Africa

"The consolidation of our Johannesburg based offices into this new office location, provides an empowering environment for our teams to continue working together in creating products and services that contribute to memorable experiences for vehicle and truck owners in every corner of Africa," stated Darren Hayes-Powell, Group Managing Director for Goodyear South Africa and Sub-Sharan Africa.

According to Goodyear, a great deal of thought has gone into the design and layout of the new offices. A specific interior design scheme was implemented to create an ergonomic and attractive work space, that cultivates creativity and collaboration. The open plan design is essential for letting natural light into the workspace, creating a refreshing and energising work environment. Furthermore, the building is an eco-friendly facility that has all the features of a green star building such as energy efficient lighting; energy efficient air conditioning; back-up water and power supply.

The offices that have now found a new home at the Hertford Office Park include Trentyre staff who were based in Germiston, Goodyear Group Managing Director, Goodyear Sub-Saharan Africa team and support staff who were based at the International Business Gateway in Midrand, as well the Consumer Sales Team that was based at Hi-Q Head Office in Spartan. The Hi-Q Head Office will soon be moving to the Motor City at Waterfall in Midrand, which will be in close proximity to the new Goodyear South Africa offices.
