Pirelli Burton Upon Trent, visited with Hidden Shadow, Decender and Old Skool. An interesting site with some nice features and lots of pipe work, big thanks to Decender for the tour, i really enjoyed this site and well worth a visit if your in the area.

In 1872 Giovanni Battista Pirelli, a young engineer, founded Pirelli & C. in Milan at the age of twenty-four. A year later, the first facility for the production of rubber articles was up and running.
Toward the end of the century the process of diversification began: from insulated telegraph cable (1879) to underwater telegraph cable (1886) to the first bicycle tyres (1890). The first automobile tyre came off the line in 1901. With the new century, Pirelli began enjoying its first sporting victories and building plants abroad: in Spain (1902), Great Britain (1914) and Argentina (1917).

An interesting fact that Pirelli is not the largest manufacture of rubber tyre's it's actually lego..according to james may
