The Durham-Duplex Mo Sellers are very glad the November is almost over as they can now shave off their Mo’s and face December fresh faced and kissable once again. They did their Mo Gro for charity and have raised over £500 for their itchy escapades – so well done them all.
Durham-Duplex’s final show of the year was supporting Accutec Blades Inc on their stand at Medica in Dusseldorf 18 – 21 November 2019. Durham-Duplex are Accutec’s UK, EU and EEA distributors and handle business across Europe. “Accutec Blades’ industrial products are very high quality and the specialist medical products they manufacture are excellent. In particular the Dermablade is very popular with Dermatologists and so it was a busy week on the stand.” Said EU Sales Manager David Piper. MD Charles Turner agreed ” Medica is about work hard and play hard and we saw a lot of customers and also ensured our American colleagues saw the best of both Dusseldorf and Koln over the week”.
Nearly completing a busy year of shows Durham-Duplex headed to Brussels for the EMPACK Show at Mechelen Nekker Halle 23-24 October. As European Sales Manager David Piper said “This is a opportunistic show which has turned out to be a good one for us especially with the increased footfall of being in Mechelen making it easier for people to reach by car. I am always impressed by the standard of the other exhibition stands and the in hall catering which made it an enjoyable show with lots of interest in DD’s range of machine knives.”
Durham-Duplex exhibited at the Health and safety North event in Manchester’s Event City 8-9 Oct 2019. Alex Smith and Martin Flanagan took Durham-Duplex’s safety range and the range of OLFA knives to the event and as ever it raised a lot of interest. As Alex said “cutting safely is a hugely important part of being safe in the workplace and so our variety of cuttings option enables companies to find the solution that works for them. The OLFA SK12 generated a lot of interest as did DD’s enclosed blade knives. I am always delighted by the response we get at these shows and Event City worked well for us.”
Durham-Duplex attended the Gulfood Manufacturing exhibition in Dubai as part of the UK pavilion 29-31 October 2019. as ever the show was busy and very international with Sales Director Carl Foster commenting “It was an excellent show with enquiries from across the region and further afield. we counted over 30 nationalities all of which were drawn in by the UK’s reputation for quality and the need to source high quality machine knives for their processing and packaging lines across EMEA.”

Durham-Duplex took part in the Jane Tomlinson’s Run for All Sheffield 10k 0n 22nd September 2019 and the team came second in the corporate challenge. With time running from 41 minutes to just over the hour it was a creditable effort by all the runners with a particular nod to Chris Sugden who came in with a very credible 43 minutes. Everyone enjoyed their day even if the running is not to everyone’s physique and thanks to Clive Wren for capturing the day in the attached photos! Well done everyone.
Durham-Duplex got busy in week 9 – 14 September 2019 with 3 exhibitions on at the same time! The sale team from UK and SEA manned Propack Myanmar, Medical Fair Thailand and RWM all at the same time.
Well done to all concerned.
Dispatch manager Clive Wren’s photos are often featured on this blog but this one was so good it needs a post all off its own.
Clive recently snapped this early morning shot of the skies over Petre St as the morning shift arrived. Nice photo!
Durham-Duplex enjoyed a trip to Kuala Lumpur for the Food Pack Malaysia Show 18-21 July 2019. The event is a mixed bag sitting alongside Malaysia Plas, Malaysia Lighting, Sign and LED and Malaysia Bakery, Coffee and Tea shows but the diversity plays to the Durham-Duplex strengths and the Main Hall is predominantly food orientated with lots of sample and plenty of foot fall. As Richard Kirtley said ” There was a lot of interest in our products through out the show and both the UK and SEA sales team will be busy following up.”Next Page »
