Oct 09: Dunlop achieve top credit rating. Dun & Bradstreet have awarded Dunlop Conveyor Belting their D & B Rating 1 Certificate.

Dun & Bradstreet, the world's leading provider of business information, have awarded Netherlands-based Dunlop Conveyor Belting their D & B Rating 1 Certificate. It is the highest possible rating for credit worthiness and financial stability and is one that only a very small number of companies achieve.

Despite an understandable decline in sales compared to the two previous record-breaking years, Dunlop have managed to keep their production and general overhead costs in line with demand. Managing Director Edwin Have states: “It has been a difficult and challenging year for everyone. It would have been very easy to reduce costs by buying lower grade raw materials but that was never an option and never will be. Our business is based on manufacturing and selling top of the range products and we have no intention of compromising on quality”.

Edwin Have believes that Dun & Bradstreet’s assessment is good news for everyone. “Of course it is very reassuring for all of our employees to know that they are working for such a financially strong company, but this news is just as important for our suppliers and our customers. Buying a conveyor belt is a long- term investment and the end-user needs to know that the company who supplied the belt is still going to be around if they need any help in the future!"
