PRODUCTION METHODS AND QUALITY CONTROL
TOTAL QUALITY CONTROL – GUARANTEED
There is only one way that a manufacturer can have total control over the products that they make and that is to produce those products themselves. It simply is not feasible to guarantee the consistent quality if you import from different countries and continents or have products made ‘under license’. This is why every single belt that we supply has been manufactured by us in our production facilities in Drachten, The Netherlands. We are always able to guarantee top quality is because we control every process ourselves from start to finish. It is Dunlop engineers and technicians who design and develop every belt we make. We also make the all-important rubber compounds ourselves, which is something that sets us apart from the vast majority of our other manufacturers. Nothing is left to chance so, without exception, every single batch of that rubber compound is thoroughly tested and approved by our rubber compound technicians before it is allowed to enter the belt production process.
To complete the quality control process, the belts and components we manufacture are repeatedly tested to destruction by our technicians every working day. The search for perfection never ceases. It is the Dunlop way. Please take the opportunity to watch our ‘Quality in the Making’ video to see just what we mean.
