Dunlop Ltd. Was founded in 1889 by Harvey du Cros and John Boyd Dunlop. The company produced natural rubber objects in England. In 1923, Dunlop Tire & Rubber constructed a 130-acre plant in America on Sheridan Drive in Tonawanda, New York. The Tonawanda Plant produced tires for automobiles, aircrafts, and motorcycles. Dunlop was acquired by Sumitomo Rubber Industries in 1986, and in 1997, 75% controlling interest was obtained by Goodyear Tire & Rubber. The company was consequently renamed Goodyear Dunlop Tires North America. Currently, the Tonawanda plant is the sole location where motorcycle tires are produced in North America.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at the Tonawanda Plant are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. The majority of the equipment at Dunlop’s Tonawanda plant was coated in asbestos. Pipes were coated with asbestos insulation and packing materials and flanges were sealed with asbestos gaskets. Asbestos block insulation coated the steam boilers at Dunlop. Firebricks which rested inside the boilers were also coated in asbestos refractory material. Removal and repair of machinery caused asbestos fibers to be emitted into the air and inhaled by workers.
