Dura Composites, which makes composite products for flooring, structures and facades, has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2017 in the international trade category.

The Queen’s Awards recognize companies who are making an outstanding contribution to enterprise. Dura won the award for its sustained international growth.

Dura Composites was established in 1996 when the company first began selling fibreglass grating for use as anti-slip walkways in the marine and industrial sectors. Over the past 20 years the product range has expanded to include glass reinforced plastic trench covers, profiles, handraild and stair treads.

‘This award recognises our talented and committed workforce and comes at a really exciting time as we look to the future and the continued growth of our product portfolio,’ said Dura Composites’ MD Stuart Burns. ‘Everyone at Dura Composites is immensely proud and honoured to receive this award, which we are sure will be a springboard for further success both in the UK and overseas.’
