Dunlop veterinarian and inventor of the air - filled rubber tyre

The inventor and founder of Dunlop, veterinarian John Boyd Dunlop, invented the inflatable rubber tyres in 1888 in Scotland to repair his son's tricycle. Already the beginnings of the Dunlop tyres were characterized by a high innovation spirit. This continues to this day. Dunlop is one of the leading tyre manufacturers in racing technology and is currently looking to win 34 in the legendary 24-hour race at Le Mans. Driving pleasure and high safety requirements are among the features that Dunlop represents in its corporate philosophy.
