Empack Ghent 14-15 Sep 2022

Durham-Duplex enjoyed exhibiting their range of packaging knives and industrial blades at Empack Ghent in the Flanders Expo, Ghent, 14-15 Sep.

EU Sales Manager David Piper said “Empack works really well for us and Easyfairs are the simplest to do as everything is laid on to maximise our customer facing time.  It was our first time in Ghent but the show was good and brought us many opportunities to discuss our packaging knives and safety knives with end users looking for reliability and performance from their cutting edges.”
