Significant Scots
John Boyd Dunlop

In 1888, a Scottish Veterinarian named John Boyd Dunlop was searching for a way to improve the ride and comfort of his son's tricycle. This modest undertaking led him to invent the first practical pneumatic tire. With that one invention, Dunlop fathered not only a company...But an entire industry.

From John Boyd Dunlop's good hearted intention and his company's humble beginnings, Dunlop Tires have grown to be recognized as world class. The Dunlop name has been synonymous with top-quality, competitively-priced tires for more than a century. And it's a reputation we'll carry proudly into the next century.
