Birmingham-based Dunlop Aircraft Tyres has landed a deal to support 28 aircraft that are maintained by Icelandair Technical Services.
The company said the agreement strengthened its position as a leading provider of tyres to Boeing 757-200 operators by landing
The five-year deal covers both the supply of new tyres and retreading for a fleet of 16 aircraft operated by Icelandair on passenger and cargo routes, as well as 12 757-200s flown by airlines in the Nordics and Russia.
Dunlop Aircraft Tyres also supports major European 757-200 operators including DHL, First Choice Airways and Thomas Cook.
“I’m delighted that we have strengthened our market share with this significant deal,” said Dunlop Aircraft Tyres’ chairman, Ian Edmondson.
“It means we now support more Boeing 757-200 aircraft in Europe than any other tyre company, which is testament to the great quality of our products and service.”
Dunlop Aircraft Tyres, which last year celebrated 100 years of world class aircraft tyre manufacturing, revealed it was opening a new tyre distribution and retreading facility in China recently and bought additional product testing and manufacturing equipment that will be used to enable the company to bring new radial tyres to market.
