Who We Are:

We are part of Fenner PLC, one of the world’s largest conveyor belt manufacturers operating twelve conveyor belt production plants on five continents and part of the International Michelin group of companies.  These plants manufacture a comprehensive range of high-performance conveyor belts including rubber multi-ply, steel cord and solid woven belting.

The process of vulcanising a conveyor belt is essential to ensure strength, structural integrity and long life. Conveyor belts for heavy-duty applications are vulcanised during manufacture. On installation, the ends of the belt must also be vulcanised to ensure that the joint is as strong as possible because the weakest point of any conveyor belt is the splice joint.

We continue to pioneer the development and manufacture of the toughest, longest-lasting conveyor belts in the world. In the world of conveyor belting, the name “Dunlop” is synonymous with the word “quality”. Our products are widely recognised as being the ultimate quality benchmark for the conveyor belt industry.
