Dunlop Aircraft Tyres Appoints New Finance Director
UK based manufacturer and retreader Dunlop Aircraft Tyres has appointed a new finance director and company secretary to assist with the company’s expansion plans. The former finance director at Honeywell subsidiary First Technology, Oliver Burns, will head a team of eight finance and information technology staff at the tyremaker’s Birmingham headquarters.
On announcing the appointment, Dunlop Aircraft Tyres chairman Ian Edmondson commented on the international expansion places the company is currently embarking on, particularly within Asia, where a new retreading facility is scheduled to open in 2009; Edmondson states that Burns’ considerable experience working with international manufacturing and service facilities will be a great asset to the company.
Dunlop Aircraft Tyres has operated independently of Dunlop Tyres since 1985, and today the company operates a 40,000 square metre facility at Fort Dunlop, employing around 250 people.
