UK & European Manufacturing

DUNLOP is proud to be a committed European manufacturer of Bearings, Transmissions and Linkages. We believe in the future of European manufacturing and will continue to focus and further enhance the requirements and expectations of our customers globally.

 

New UK Production Facility

During 2014 UK production moved to a newly refurbished manufacturing facility this has enabled further expansion and additional production machinery as well as additional production staff. This state-of-the-art UK site is based in Ashford, Kent UK and is ideally located with excellent transport links to Europe.

 

All of our manufacturing facilities use the latest CNC production machinery available. Our capacity includes CNC lathes and milling machines, multi-spindle auto lathes, automatic and robotic machine loaders and countless ancillary machines, giving us high volume, precision component production.

 

In addition to our catalogue ranges of Bearings, Transmission and Linkages we produce non-standard items to suit individual customer requirements, 40% of our total production is for bespoke products to specific customer design.

 

Investment

Investment is constant, continually expanding and upgrading our portfolio of production facilities and machinery globally.

 

Additional investment also extends to our staff, in addition to having highly skilled engineers and manufacturing staff with years of experience we also believe in training our younger employees, this we feel is key to the company's future growth. We invest in their future by means of an apprenticeship scheme, many of our skilled engineers have come through our own apprenticeship program.

 

This we believe, combines traditional engineering values with modern production techniques.
