Dunlop: History of the brand

Founded in 1889, Dunlop is a recognised name in tyres. The company's history can be traced back to John Boyd Dunlop, a Scottish vet living in Dublin, who invented the first practical tyre for his son's tricycle in 1888. This invention revolutionised the transport industry. The company grew rapidly, producing tyres for bicycles, motorbikes and eventually cars. In 1999, the company merged with Goodyear and is now a major player in the global tyre market.

Today, Dunlop continues to innovate and manufacture high quality products with belts. The brand's commitment to innovation and excellence has enabled it to consolidate its position as a leading player in the global market.
