Apollo tyres new manufacturing plant
When I first read this article I was reminded of my past visits to tyre factories here in the UK. I now know that the tyre making facilities are very modern and hygienic, far from the days in the 70’s and 80’s.
The very first tyre plant that I visited was at Fort Dunlop on the outskirts of Birmingham in the West Midlands UK. Fort Dunlop was a huge tyre making facility and was one of the area’s largest employers. You could see the huge factory from the M6 motorway, with its massive “Dunlop” sign on the top of the building; it was a landmark that you would never forget, once you saw it.
I was a young man at the time and I can remember seen the motorsport division as we approached the main factory. It was a very exciting time for me as it was to be the first time that I had seen tyres being made and I knew that this would increase my knowledge about the product and that it would give me a better understanding about the tyres that would give me a decent standard of living for the rest of my life.
