Durham-Duplex had a successful exhibition at Koln Eisenwarenmesse aka Practical World 6-8 Mar 2016.  This year was a landmark as it was the first show where the range of  American Line, Personna and GEM products were on show on Durham-Duplex’s stand, in their capacity as the EU Distributor for AccuTech Blades, alongside the industrial blades, machine knives, safety knives and flooring tools normally associated with Durham-Duplex.  UK Sales Director Paul Bottomley, pictured with European Sales Manager David Piper, said that “it was a great show for Durham-Duplex seeing many old faces plus many new and the quality of our product offering, including the addition of the AccuTech Blades products, made a very good offering to both retail and specialist visitors.  The show has changed over the years but it was delightful to see the European Halls busy and we did great business over the 3 days.”  To get more details on any of the Durham-Duplex products get in touch via or
