Bristol, PA-based Dunmore today announces the 50th anniversary of being in the business of manufacturing functional materials for diverse applications. The organization was founded by Michael Sullivan in 1970. The company started in a 2,700-sq-ft facility in New Jersey and has expanded to three facilities that serve customers around the globe. The company began with an entrepreneurial spirit and a philosophy that focused on research and development and engineering. Solving customer problems has been a key part of Dunmore’s success over the past 50 years. It has allowed the organization to grow long-term partnerships in diverse markets.
In 1970, Dunmore started with the idea that there were new opportunities available for technical film materials and unique solutions were needed in markets that were not being adequately served. Since 1970, Dunmore has evolved with the ever changing world, but the core idea remains. From providing new materials for the expanding aerospace industry to supporting green energy technologies, Dunmore has continued to adapt to the changing world. During the 50 year journey, Dunmore has grown to three manufacturing sites: Bristol, PA and Brewster, NY, in the USA, and Freiburg Germany. Each site continues to expand its capabilities to meet the new needs of customers.
According to Tom Rimel, Dunmore president, "The principles and philosophy of the organization since the beginning have been critical to the sustained success of the business. We look forward to the evolution of the organization as we strive to better serve our customers and partners."
This is a proud moment for the organization, but Dunmore recognizes the need to look ahead and continuously adapt to new business environments. Placing the needs of the customer first and innovating with them will continue to be critical for the future success of the company.
