Duo UK named a Top 100 Manufacturing Role Model for a Second Year Running

Duo UK is celebrating as Managing Director, David Brimelow, has been named a Top 100 manufacturing role model by The Manufacturer magazine.

The award comes exactly one year after Zoe Brimelow, Brand Director at Duo UK, was also named as one of the Top 100 role models in the manufacturing industry.

David was recognized at the awards for being an inspiring leader who is committed to investing in developing the value of their manufacturing business through people, processes and technology. Since co-founding Duo UK in 1988, he has been instrumental in steering the company to its current position of a market leader with a £25m turnover and 130 employees.

More recently, David has invested in exploring overseas markets and broadening Duo's offering to supply other types of packaging alongside its manufactured goods. The firm now offers a vast range of packaging accessory products such as tissue paper, branded ribbon, eco re-usable bags and boxes as well as polythene products.

Individuals were nominated by The Manufacturer readers, the wider industrial community and the general public, for their contributions in changing the face of industry, finding new markets, and for making marked investment in people, processes and customers.

Commenting on the recognition, David said: "We were proud of Zoe when she was named one of the UK's top 100 role models in manufacturing last year, so to have been presented with the same accolade is incredibly flattering.

"There's a misconception that British manufacturing is dying but the industry is growing and we're proud to be part of those leading the change. Together with the rest of the top 100 role models, Duo UK strives to drive innovation, productivity and inspire the next generation of UK manufacturers."

Judge, Tom Lawton, also commented on the awards saying: "In my view manufacturing is the most important sector in the rebalancing of the UK economy and for the second year The Manufacturer Top 100 is providing an essential platform to recognise talented role models who will inspire and attract future generations"
