History of the Michelin Group Michelin brothers André and Édouard embarked on a great human and industrial odyssey in 1889 – to develop modern transport solutions that assisted freedom and economic development through ceaseless innovation. Since then the Michelin brand has been associated with many industry and world firsts: the first detachable bicycle tyre (1891), the first paved runway in the world (1916), the first Radial tyre (1946) to just name a few.
