About Us

Who Is Goodheart? Who Is Willcox?

In 1921, William Goodheart and Charles D. Willcox, along with a few others, came together to start a company to publish Dyke's Automobile and Gasoline Engine Encyclopedia that had been previously self-published by the author, Mr. A. L. Dyke. Little did they know this small publishing company would grow up to become The Goodheart-Willcox Company, Inc., a leader in career and technical education (CTE).

Today’s Goodheart-Willcox (G-W) publishes both print and digital textbooks while also producing online courses and other instructional resources that provide a complete classroom solution. With subject-appropriate titles for middle school, high school, higher education, and professional training, G-W is recognized as a go-to source for career and technical education content.

What Differentiates Goodheart-Willcox from other Learning Companies?

    As an employee-owned company, the people of Goodheart-Willcox are vested in the success of our products and our customers. The G-W team is accountable to each other and to our customers. This means that customer service and satisfaction are a top priority. Goodheart-Willcox is driven to create the most accurate, authoritative content and support materials to best facilitate teaching and learning. From the subject idea stage to after-sale service, G-W emphasizes quality in every step of the process to assure our products meet customers’ expectations.

  2. We Listen
    One characteristic often noted about Goodheart-Willcox is that we listen to our customers. To ensure the G-W team is providing you with all of the information and learning tools you need for success, we actively solicit your feedback. The people using our products have our utmost attention.

  3. Focus on Career and Technical Education
    Goodheart-Willcox focuses exclusively on career and technical education (CTE). This focus allows G-W to direct all of our resources and expertise into career and technical education to provide you with comprehensive products for a complete learning experience. This niche focus allows us to develop a team of experts, including our authors, editors, and designers whose expertise in the CTE areas leads to the development of exceptional products.

  4. Support for the Profession
    G-W actively sponsors recognition awards for outstanding achievement by teachers, supervisors, chapter advisors, and teacher of the year programs. Our company also supports individual state CTE professional associations by advertising in their magazines and newsletters to facilitate communication among the membership.

  5. Local Focus
    In this time of globalization, the ownership of many companies is outside of the United States, and products are manufactured internationally in areas that require long delivery times. However, there is still a place for domestic companies. Goodheart-Willcox takes pride in the fact that it is headquartered in the United States and that it manufactures its products in the United States for the North American educational market. This allows us to be a true partner with you.
