The Master Cutler’s Challenge 2023- 6th July 2023

Durham-Duplex answered Dame Julie Kenny’s, the Master Cutler, challenge to support her chosen charity The Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust.  The Trust is committed to raising significant sums to support its ambitious community and educational programmes, where campaigns and fundraising are key to enable this.  The money raised will be used towards a number of targeted programmes at Wentworth Woodhouse including educational projects, community engagement activities, well-being programmes and cultural experiences.  This goal will be focused on groups who are often not presented with the same opportunities as others, including people with disabilities, low income households, the socially and economically disadvantaged and ethnic groups.

This “changing lives” initiative was supported by a team from Durham-Duplex staff who did a 23 mile extended Edale loop taking in Mam Tor, Win Hill, Lose Hill. the Edale skyline, Kinder Scout, the Edale Cross, Mount Famine and River Sett starting and finishing at Hope on 6th July 2023

Thank you for supporting such a worthy cause.

Pro Pack Asia 14 – 17 June 2023


Durham-Duplex exhibited at the Propack Asia Show in BITEC Bangkok 14-17th June 2023 as part of the UK Pavilion. This four day show is Asia’s Number One international trade event for Food, Drink & Pharmaceutical Processing & Packaging Technology.

This year Durham-Duplex showed its enhanced chicken processing products alongside its wide range of industrial knives for the sector including tray knives, toothed knives, food processing blades and film & foil slitting blades.  K Kanwipha, the ASEAN sales Manager, said “Propack is the big packaging show in Thailand and drew in visitors from across the region making it a truly international event.  The audience are very knowledgeable so are impressed by the Durham-Duplex range and swift deliveries on machine knives from the factory in Amata Rayong. However, as usual it is the range of FBL and local products plus the detailed knowledge of the sales team that draws people onto the stand.  We had an exciting ad enjoyable Propack 2023 .”
