    We started out small: 17 employees, 3 extruders, 1 printer and 4 conversion machines, to be exact. But even then, our ambition was colossal. It’s all thanks to our people, and their unwavering determination to deliver forward-thinking packaging solutions that we are where we are now. It’s that same spirit we started out with years ago, that has taken us to the international business it is today.

    We’re proud of our history. And if you want to make history with us, you’re in the right place. We could tell you what working at Duo is like. But we’d rather you heard it from our brilliant people themselves.

    “My favourite thing about working at Duo has to be the people I work for and with. I am pleased to call many of them my friends.” 


    Rebecca Financial Controller

    Financial Controller


    “I moved from Newcastle to Manchester to study a professional accounting qualification and was looking for a job where I could put that into practice and continue to develop further. I worked for a large corporate company, but it lacked personality. I came for a couple of interviews at Duo and really liked the friendly vibe – and hey presto, I’m still here nearly 6 years later.” 

    Francisco Conversion Operative

    Conversion Operative


    “As a Conversion Operative I am responsible for maintaining the machines and packing our customers mailing bags. If a problem presents itself, I’m empowered to solve it and I know that everyone is always willing to help. Duo has a good atmosphere and is a great environment to work in. Everyday there is the opportunity to learn something new.

    “From starting here doing work experience with no clue what I wanted to do in my career to now being in a place where I am in a role which I truly love, is something I feel lucky to have achieved.

    When I have asked to try something new or develop my career I have felt really supported in my choices and Duo have always found a way to help give me the opportunity to develop. Duo has helped me grow in confidence and grow as a person, everyday I smile and its because of the people I am surrounded by.”

    Extrusion Work Experience


    “Having heard that there were vacancies in Duo’s extrusion department, I escaped from home to go and see what it is all about. I completed a night shift and thoroughly enjoyed my work experience. The team are kind, caring people and the environment is buzzing. I had to return home but I highly recommend a job in Duo’s extrusion department.”

    Extrusion Supervisor


    “I have been at Duo for over 30 years and every day is different. I am a shift supervisor in the Extrusion department and we are busy from the start to the end of the shift. Our focus is to operate the machines making sure the film is to a good standard and quality and keep downtime and scrap to a minimum.

    The whole team is so friendly, and I am fortunate to call many of my workmates friends.”

    Eddie_Commercial Manager

    Commercial Manager


    “My Duo journey started as an apprentice printer, then to an ink technician, to sales executive, account manager and to my current role as Commercial Manager. It’s been amazing to see the changes over this period. I joined Duo in the early days and when I look around now, I see the significant investment in machinery, technology and the site. The continued research and development in driving packaging innovation forward sustainably makes me feel very proud to be part of this company. But most of all it’s the people, both past and present.”

    Internal Sales & Service Manager


    At Duo, I found more than just a job, I found a home. When I was looking for my next career move it was all about culture and fit, and it was clear to me that that Duo’s values matched that of my own. The future of Duo looks bright, it’s a business that has always looked to the future and strived to be the best it can be. You only need to look at the investment over the recent years in people, technology and the creation of Duclo Recycling. But it’s the people who really make Duo what it is. We all work very hard and have a huge amount of respect for each other. The management team is one of the best I have worked for and with. They are always asking your opinions and respect your views. It’s a family business, and you feel part of that family.
