DUNLOP HISTORY

The long history of Dunlop begins in 1888 when a doctor ordered John Boyd Dunlop's son to ride a bicycle against a cold. To make it easier for his boy to ride a bike, John Boyd Dunlop Senior came up with the idea of producing tyres made of canvas, which were bonded with liquid rubber. John Boyd Dunlop has patented his idea and Dunlop was born and the "Airbreeze" was born. This was the beginning of a company that built on innovation and new ideas. Dunlop is committed to looking ahead and finding ways to make the company's products even better. So we have to thank a little boy that nowadays there is a Dunlop tyre and its innovative technology. Now Dunlop is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-performance tyres and also the sponsor of several race competitions.

Dunlop is part of The Goodyear Tyre & Rubber Company, a company that produces almost 200 million tyres (!) annually. Headquartered in Akron, Ohio, the company employs approximately 72,000 people at various locations around the world. In Europe, Dunlop has three tyre factories located in Germany, Great Britain and France. Dunlop produces tyres for passenger cars, motorcycles, 4-wheel drive vehicles, go-karts and trucks. These tyres are characterized by the innovative spirit and the breakthrough technology of Dunlop. Dunlop is involved in global activities in manufacturing the tyres, while at the same time recognizing and respecting the different market conditions. The company's progress in tyre technology is aimed at producing a better tyre. This concerns both the ground adhesion and the steering of the vehicle. In its tire manufacturing, Dunlop & a. The so-called "Versaload Technology ™", which maximizes tyre adhesion when in contact with the road. The "DuPont ™ Kevlar ™" technology is also used. This gives the tyre a stiffer carcass, which in turn ensures safe and precise driving. In addition, the "Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology (DSST) ®" with a tyre that has lost its air pressure, can still drive up to 80 km / h. The above technologies are just a few examples of the technologies that Dunlop uses to produce the best possible tire. These also have a positive effect on the driving experience. Thanks to the collaboration of Goodyear and Dunlop, Dunlop has access to all the technologies and innovations that are developed around the world. These findings can then be applied in tire manufacturing to create a tyre of the highest quality and with the best possible driving experience.
