Dunlop Zambia Ltd

Dunlop Zambia Ltd

Ndola

After Zambia’s independence in 1964, the Government-owned Industrial Development Corporation of Zambia (INDECO) set about to organise and manage State investments either as wholly-owned subsidiaries or as companies established on a joint venture basis with major equity held by the Zambian Government. Dunlop Zambia Ltd was one of these projects that fell under INDECO.

The K3-8 million Dunlop Zambia tyre factory in Ndola was officially opened by President Kaunda on April 26, 1969. Dunlop ceased production at their Ndola plant in Zambia in 1997, before ditching the local market in view of the poor economic environment during a period, which made the manufacturing industry less viable.
