GenCorp offers what no other company can - bringing decades of history that launched the first space age and now puts mission-critical technology into the hands of our warfighters.
GenCorp was established in 1915, originally as the General Tire & Rubber Company. The name change to GenCorp was implemented in 1984 when the company was formed as a parent holding company. In a subsequent restructuring, the company exited the tire business by divesting General Tire. In 1999, GenCorp spun off its Decorative & Building Products and Performance Chemicals businesses into a separate, publicly-traded company called OMNOVA Solutions, Inc. Most recently, Rocketdyne became a part of GenCorp.
GenCorp President and CEO Scott Seymour puts it all into perspective this way, «Our vision for the future is a shared one. We have the best workforce in the industry and we are committed to 100% safety and mission success as we continue to deliver performance, drive innovation and create opportunity. We are continuing our already impressive legacy to be a leader in the next space age.»
