Vulcanising SW announced as Dunlop authorised distributor

One of the leading process and conveyor belt suppliers in the UK, Vulcanising SW, has announced its official role as an authorised distributor for world-renowned rubber goods manufacturer, Netherlands-based Dunlop Conveyor Belting.

New Dunlop authorised distributorship for VSW
Already selling Dunlop products, the distributorship will now enable VSW to provide the full range of the premium belting, matting and sheeting products to their existing clients, as well as build relationships with new customers through their connections with Dunlop.

Setting the standard for the aggregate and mining sector
Ideally suited for the aggregate and mining sector, Dunlop manufactures a wide range of hi-performance and specialist belting products for even the most demanding environments and conditions including both heavy and lighter weight belting that is specifically designed to handle ripping, tearing and heavy impact.

VSW will deliver their superb standard of service and industry know-how across the southwest of England from Cornwall to Oxford and across to Southampton in the east and mid/ South Wales to the west.

Premium belting products from Dunlop
Craig Jones, VSW manager (heavy duty) said “We’re really pleased and proud to bring the amazing range of Dunlop’s premium belting products and technical support to both our existing and new customers.

“Our authorised distributor status will enable the team at VSW to give our clients much more choice, allowing us to offer greater flexibility to meet their needs and issues. Much the same as VSW, Dunlop is a solutions-based company and working together I think will give us the opportunity to really deliver better belting solutions and value across the heavy duty sector. I think that it is an ideal partnership.”

Dunlop’s sales and marketing director, Andries Smilda, is equally enthusiastic about working with VSW. “The UK market is dominated by so-called ‘economy’ belting imported from South East Asia. If truth be told, the very best that can be said for it is that “It does a job”. At Dunlop we have always refused to play such a game. Instead, we focus our approach based on ‘lowest cost’ rather than lowest selling price by offering belting that provides a much longer operational lifetime. VSW is a highly respected operation who will be able to provide first-hand advice and help their customers achieve much greater reliability and cost-effectiveness.”
