6. Dunlop (England)
The name “Dunlop” itself has become household in the typical Nigeria communities. In fact, the typical village people and some few ignorant city people call almost anything made of rubber “Dunlop Material” Lol.
Dunlop is actually the name for a brand of tires that are owned by some set of companies all over the world. It is originally founded by John Boyd Dunlop – the pneumatic tire pioneer in 1889 at Birmingham, England.
