The symbol on the cover, part of our proposed
new corporate identity, reﬂects the dramatic
transformation and high aspirations of the
performance-driven, growing and dynamic com-
pany we have become.To learn more about our
new identity, which shareholders will be asked
to approve at the 2001 Annual Meeting, turn
to the Letter to Our Shareholders on page 10.
Over the past few years, we have shaped a
new and more powerful company – a premier
aerospace and industrial enterprise with leading
market positions, world-class products and abundant
opportunities to build on our record of strong, profitable
growth. Our vision is to create value through excellence in
people, quality and innovation, and we remain true to the
underlying principles that have served us so well – technical
excellence, strategic thinking, intense customer focus and
accountability to shareholders, customers and ourselves.
an ever. Goodrich is the world’s leading supplier of landing gear systems
and services. We provide innovative, efﬁcient, state-of-the-art
products, including sensors, landing gear, brake controls, and
wheels and brakes, either as components or as integrated
systems.These products are used on a variety of commercial,
regional, business and military aircraft.
Innovation at Goodrich is really taking off. Like the company’s patented
inﬂatable seat belt, and new technologies that are revolutionizing aircraft
ice detection, avionics, fuel measurement, ejection seats, evacuation slides
and more. Such great ideas don’t just happen. At Goodrich, innovation is a
mindset – a restlessness to ﬁnd a better way. It’s a strategy built into every
business plan and funded so our best ideas reach the market proﬁtably.
The effort is paying off with a robust new product and technology pipeline
that is keeping us ahead of the curve.
Our new ﬂexible silicon strain gage, featur-
ing our miniature microelectromechanical
systems (MEMS) technology, was honored
with the prestigious Best of Sensors Expo
Fall 2000 award.The award recognizes
innovative new products for the sensing
industry. MEMS will be integral to innova-
tive “smart” components for a broad range
of aerospace and industrial applications.
of the curve.
Flawless performance in mission-critical situations. Our customers come
to Goodrich with their most demanding requirements, where failure is
not an option. From sealing systems on the Alaskan pipeline to landing
gear on the Space Shuttle to star tracker systems for satellites, our goal
is to meet or exceed customer expectations regardless of the challenge.
We always want to be top notch and top choice for our customers
when quality counts the most.
Garlock Sealing Technologies is a leading global
producer of high-quality sealing products that
protect equipment wherever performance is
vital for economic, safety and environmental
reasons. Garlock helps customers efﬁciently
seal the toughest process ﬂuids in the most
demanding applications.The Fluidtec® GPA split
collar seal shown here is ideal for pumps and
mixers carrying abrasive, corrosive, crystallizing
or clogging ﬂuids.
Finding new ways to create value has taken us to every
corner of the planet and beyond. Since ﬁrst developing
space suits for the Mercury astronauts, we have helped
make space exploration a reality with high-tech components,
sensors, industrial sealing systems and data controls.Today,
we are strategically expanding our presence in space.
Through a series of recent acquisitions and internal growth,
we have created a $250 million business in spacecraft
attitude determination and control systems.The prospects
for continued growth? As vast as outer space.
We believe that we can best create value when we
think and act like members of one global team with a
common vision, sharing knowledge and best practices
and leveraging our strength to beneﬁt customers,
shareholders, the company and each other.
People are the key to achieving
our vision. We start with the best,
then provide meaningful opportu-
nities to advance, develop and
make a difference. Shown here
are Debra Wilform, Manager,
Human Resources; Harry Arnold,
President, Fuel & Utility Systems;
Lynne Degand,Vice President,
Finance & Business Development,
Engineered Industrial Products;
and Bill Walthall, Group Vice
President, Engineered Products.
Value creation for all our stakeholders starts with our people, whether
they assemble landing gear near Seattle, Washington, install systems
on aircraft in Toulouse, France, or develop new highly engineered
wheel systems in Longview,Texas. Our goal is to attract,
retain, develop and reward high-performing
people committed to our long-term success.
That’s why we are looking closely at our
“people” programs company-wide. Aligning
these programs with our business strate-
gies will make Goodrich an even better
place to work – one where people
work together to create value.
letter to our
In 2000, Goodrich’s commitment to creating value
through excellence in people, quality and innovation
produced excellent results. Our total annual return
to shareholders was 36%, a strong performance com-
pared to many similar companies and the broader
market indices. We delivered our sixth consecutive year
of record operating results, despite a challenging busi-
ness environment. At the same time, we continued
to transform Goodrich into a top-tier aerospace and
industrial company by acquiring seven businesses,
developing innovative new technologies and products,
and winning major contracts. To further our transfor-
mation, we made the difﬁcult decision to sell our
Performance Materials business.

Net interest expense: Net interest expense increased by $18.9 million
from $86.6 million in 1999 to $105.5 million in 2000. The increase
is primarily attributable to increased borrowings in 2000 (approxi-
mately $500 million) as a result of the Company’s $300 million share
repurchase program and acquisitions. The $5.9 million increase in
net interest expense between 1999 and 1998 was primarily due to an
increase in average outstanding borrowings in 1999 as a result of the
Coltec merger and a reduction in the amount of capitalized interest
as a result of lower capital spending.

percent of sales 16.8% 16.9%
Sales decreased $77.5 million, or 9.9 percent, from $779.9 million in 1998 to $702.4 million in 1999. The decrease in sales is primarily attributable
to a 1998 disposition of a division ($37 million) and reduced volume in most of the Segment’s businesses ($38 million), partially offset by favorable
prices ($3 million). As previously discussed, the reduced volume is attributable to weakness in most markets served by the Segment, especially in
the businesses serving the domestic chemical and petroleum process industries, industrial machinery and equipment, and the defense capital goods
markets. The Segment did experience growth in European sales in its sealing business following the 1998 acquisition of a French company
(Ceﬁlac). Further, the operations serving the automotive and heavy-duty vehicle markets experienced modest growth during 1999.
Operating income decreased by $13.4 million, or 10.2 percent, from $131.6 million in 1998 to $118.2 million in 1999. Excluding the impact of
dispositions ($6 million) and non-recurring charges ($13 million) during 1998, operating income decreased by approximately $20 million. The
non-recurring charges in 1998 related to Y2K costs and a warranty issue related to previously sold diesel engines. Overall, the decrease in operat-
ing income between periods was due to the market weakness noted above. Management was able to partially offset the decline in business with
various initiatives designed to lower costs including facility consolidation, six sigma projects and the application of lean manufacturing initiatives.
