    Hi, we’re DUO. And we’re passionate about packaging. We consult on it. Innovate it. Manufacture it. Recycle it. And distribute it world over.

    Manchester 1988. With just 17 employees, 3 extruders, 1 printer, 4 conversion machines and ambition you could bottle, we set out to build a trusted business with our passion for packaging at its core.

    Over 35 years later, and we’re now a category-leading consultancy and manufacturing business, made of 110 employees, a UK manufacturing site, 1 closed loop recycling facility, 4 international warehouses, a global network of packaging partners and can proudly name some of the UK’s leading brands as long-standing customers.

    As a major packaging manufacturer, consultancy and supplier, we believe it’s our responsibility to drive and develop new sustainable packaging technology. Our mixed model of manufacturing and sourcing products, alongside our consulting expertise has meant we’ve been able to reduce the impact of our packaging on the planet, as well as helping our customers reach their environmental goals.

    To show our commitment to a greener future, in 2022 we launched Duclo Recycling. Duclo Recycling specialises in the recovery and recycling of plastic packaging, preventing end-of-use material going to waste and increases availability of recycled plastic materials for manufacturers decreasing their reliance on virgin plastics. You can find more information how we’re #bringingwastefullcircle here.

    Our qualifications, experience, and adherence to industry standards mean that our clients can be confident they are receiving a quality product and service from a trusted partner. This approach has resulted in our achievements of many global quality standards, including BRCGS Packaging Material, ISO 19001 Quality Assurance, ISO14021: 2016 Environmental Claims and ISO 14001 Environmental Management. People standards; Investor in People (Silver), Achilles and Sedex. Plus, industry and innovation excellence Kings Award for Enterprise: Innovation for our patented DuoOptipac mailing bag and operating to Operation Clean Sweep best practice criteria. 

    Ultimately at Duo, what we’re most proud of is our people. From category leading consultants, to innovators and suppliers – it’s our adaptable, resourceful and down-to-earth approach to the whole packaging process that keeps our customers coming back to us, time and time again.

    Expert Consultancy

    The only thing that matters to Duo is solving problems for those we work with. And as a category-leading consultant on all things packaging, we’ve always got the answers. Whether it’s saving money or the planet, creating stronger plastics or partnerships, our clients come to us because they know they’ll get expert advice, and excellent results.

    Manufacture & Distribute

    Anything you want, we got it. And if we don’t, we’ll find a way to make it. Whilst we manufacture and recycle polythene packaging in the UK, we have hand picked specialist packaging partners to offer our clients the best solution for their business. So if the right solution is a fabric bag, a box, roll of super strength film or branded tape, we’ll adapt and tailor, until we’ve got it exactly right for you.

    Market Leading Innovation

    Our clients come to us for more than a bag. They come to us because we create packaging, with passion. For us, this means constantly reinventing our products, working hard to create a more sustainable future and doing it all to help benefit those we work with, and the world we live in. This approach to innovation has resulted in the launch of the DuoOptipac Mailing Bag and the world's first Mailing Bag made from GreenPE, a bio-based sustainable alternative to regular polyethylene.

    Brilliant Service & Products

    The World is your Oyster. The beauty of being a mixed manufacturing and distributing model is that we don’t just make bags – we’ll get them to where you need them to be. Whether its mailing bags to Milton Keynes or boxes to Boston – we can get our products anywhere in the world, whenever you need them. We even have stock holding facilities in USA and Australia to get your products to the destination even quicker.
