Congratulations Alex

Alex cricket 2014


The Staff at Durham-Duplex have had to get used to having a bone-fide sport champion in  the sales office after Alex Smith, UK Sales South,  was part of the winning Blackpool Cricket Club that won the 2014 Northern League Division 1 title for first time in 24 years by beating Penrith Cricket Club at Penrith with a game to spare.

The picture with the Trophy was taken after their last game at home against Darwen Cricket Club and Alex is on the back row, second in from right on team photo.  For the cricket buffs Alex is a middle order batsman and a wicked fielder.

They are a fine set of athletes and rightly proud of their achievement.

INTERPLAS/PPMA Show 30 September – 2 October 2014

INterplas 2014

Durham Duplex had a marvellous INTERPLAS at the NEC 30 September – 2 October 2014.  UK Sales Director Paul Bottomley attended throughout and was delighted with the response :  “Our choice of location between both INTERPLAS and the PPMA Show was perfect as we got equal footfall from  both shows  which suited our product offering, which sits across the Plastics, Packaging and Processing Industry Sectors.  We will now have a very busy Autumn following up the excellent enquiries we took many of which have already converted into new business.  It was also lovely to see attendees seeking us out as they want a reliable knife supplier and the love the fact that we manufacture in Sheffield.”  If you would like further details or a quote for your cutting requirements please contact [email protected] or call 0114 243 2313 and we would be delighted to help.
