November 10: Dunlop expand Services in Spain.

Following their recent move to new, larger offices and warehouse in Abrera, near Barcelona Dunlop Conveyor Belting have now launched their own service company, Dunlop Service (España). This means that in addition to supplying high performance conveyor belts, Dunlop is now able to provide a 24/7 splicing service to customers within a 250 to 300 km radius of their new premises.

Dunlop Service holds a wide range of conveyor components such as idlers, scrapers, skirts, wear resistant sheeting, rubber and ceramic pulley lagging, mechanical fasteners, as well as repair and splicing materials. They also supply profiled, sidewall and cleated belts. Other services include conveyor belt maintenance, technical support for rubber belts and a technical calculation service.

Their locally held stock of belts has also been expanded. This is in addition to the enormous stocks held in their production plant in the Netherlands from where they provide delivery within 48 hours to most locations in Spain.

The manager of Dunlop Service España, Santi Soler, believes that combining the supply of top quality belting and fitting services is what the market wants. "Although Dunlop has a superb range of belting plus a fantastic level of technical expertise, most end-users of conveyor belts need a complete package" says Mr Soler. "The creation of Dunlop Service means that we can now supply and fit our belts plus a lot more besides".

Despite the difficult economic situation in Spain, Dunlop’s managing director, Edwin Have, is confident of success. "We have already successfully established Dunlop Service centres in Holland, Morocco and Italy," explains Mr Have. "In my opinion we have the best people, the best products and the best service and we want to get that important message across!"
