Close Tolerance Cutting and Bending Specialist; Duright Engineering have re-joined Made in the Midlands (MIM) recently. Ross Taylor, Managing Director at Duright, said they decided to re-join after a busy two years, in principle to see if there are areas that we can learn or improve our best practice from members.  We would also like the opportunity to invest in new suppliers.

Wednesbury based manufacturer Duright was established in 1978, they have evolved into   one of the country’s leading tube processing facilities throughout the UK. Renowned for their expertise in tube laser cutting, bending, swagging, with a complete second opps department including welding.  Duright supplies to a wide range of sectors including automotive, fencing, shop fittings, agricultural and healthcare sectors. 

After leaving the MIM membership to concentrate on internal investment a few years ago, Duright is back to learn from fellow Made members - especially regarding machining and best practice. Ross Taylor, Managing Director at Duright, said:

“This time we are eager to connect with members at events and engage in discussions to learn about best practice over the couple of years, especially regarding what they have learnt over the course of the pandemic. As a family owned and operated business, we have grown and expanded over the last 40 years because of internal knowledge. Hopefully joining MIM will give us an idea of what others are doing in the industry.”

Duright has been extremely busy throughout the pandemic, resulting in changing to 24hr working days, 6 days a week. We implemented a work from home format where possible, the firm remarkably didn't have to furlough anyone over the course of the last 18 months. Duright manufactured for the NHS, namely, The Nightingale Hospitals throughout the height of the pandemic, they are set to receive a manufacturing heroes lapel badge from MIM for their efforts. 

Ross and the team at Duright look forward to meeting an array of members within the MIM membership, especially potential suppliers. As for what members can look forward to with Duright being part of the group, Ross said: “processes in our company are critical, everything is timed so we can measure what we have made profit from and what we haven't. We are great at efficiency, and I look forward to sharing best practice like this with members and learning from them.”
