Awards

Best Green Company

In The Sunday Times, Duraweld was ranked 28th throughout the UK in 2011, a rise of 11 places from 2010's position. 

 

According to the Times, “…competition for places in the Top 60 was intense and the quality of entries very high. Only those organisations demonstrating the highest environmental standards, with workforces wholly engaged and in tune with their green initiatives, have made it onto the list.”

 

Product of Excellence

Binding Industries Association

We specially designed a travel card holder, from our own 100% recycled polypropylene, to win the Product of Excellence Awards with the BIA. The design has been registered.

 

The BIA Judges commented:

We were very impressed with the design and use of materials. The travel card holder is creative, very practical and it really stood out amongst the other entries.”

 

We also gained a certificate of merit for a A6 ring binder with silk screen printing.
