The Results

Enhanced project management and transparency, advanced executive reporting capabilities, streamlined Bill of materials, and easily traceable final products and raw materials, using FIFO & Lot control.

Dunlop first opened its gates in 1890 in Coventry, UK. In 2007, Dunlop Systems & Components was formed after a management buyout of the Dunlop Coventry suspension division from Trelleborg AB. Today, at their state-of-the-art Coventry facility, they design & manufacture Advanced Electronic Control Systems & Air Suspension components for the automotive & ancillary industries.

Their products include Air Springs, Electronically Controlled Air Suspension (ECAS), Air Suspension Conversions, Mobility Systems, Testing Services & Electronic Design.

Currently, Dunlop employs nearly 100 people in their engineering and manufacturing operation & a turnover of approximately £10m pa. They have sold over a quarter of a million Ecas systems worldwide, with over 10 million Air Springs sold since they began production in the 1950s.

“There is a growing trust towards the data coming from the new system as opposed to the old one which was often misleading.” Operations
