Duo 'bags' award at the M.E.N Business of the Year Awards

Duo UK was one of six companies awarded at the Manchester News Business of the Year Awards on Thursday 7th November, in a ceremony held in the Manchester Midland Hotel.

The MEN Business of the Year Awards celebrates 'companies who have demonstrated the drive, foresight and courage to street the most effective course through the stormy economic waters in which the world remains engulfed.'

Duo was awarded the prize in the 'turnover between £10-25m category.' 

Duo was praised for demonstrating that there is a still a bright future for firms operating in historically important industries. As well as showing impressive year-on-year growth, the business has been prepared to think outside of the box when it comes to delivering growth. Judges were also impressed by the firm's work to promote the wider interests of British businesses operating in its sector.

Duo UK Managing Director David Brimelow said on winning the award: "This is an amazing award for the team. Duo UK has had an incredible year, it's our 25th anniversary and we're delighted to celebrate this with such a great award.

Duo will go from strength to strength and this award will give our staff great encouragement for us to move forward as a team and aim to get into the next category next year. 

Four years ago we successfully completed a MBO and at this point we appointed experts in key areas of the business, which has assisted in Duo increasing our turnover by 77% in four years.

We supply the fastest growing industry, the ecommerce market, and we are proud to be a partner to the leading companies in this industry. We will not let them down; we will continue to move our business forward. We have a great young, enthusiastic team around us and we're ready to attack the next 25 years."

Winners in other categories included Outsourcery, OBI Property, Oliver James Associates, JW Lees and Manchester Airports Group.
