AKRON (Nov. 5)—Goodyear Engineered Products will expand into the hydraulic hose market in North America through an alliance with Italy's Alfa Gomma S.p.A., which will manufacture the Goodyear-branded hose. Goodyear will distribute the hose, along with fittings and crimpers, in North America. The pact allows Goodyear to stock a complete range of hydraulic hose classifications, from R1 through R17, with 3/16-inch to 2-inch inside diameters, a spokesman said. The firm has made two classifications of hydraulic hose for 50 years, he said, but never filled out the industrial line.
