The company was founded in 1986 when the original owner sourced the unique Duplex machine from a small family run business in Florence, Italy. The machines were initially sold from a small industrial unit in Herne Bay.
Sales increased rapidly due in large part to the innovative nature of the product and the operation moved to larger premises in Whitstable in the early ‘90s where it remains as the head office to this day.
Steam machines were added to the range during the ‘90s and quickly became an integral part of the Duplex fleet. In 1997 the original owner retired and sold the business to Alan Udall and in 2011, two long standing employees, Kevin Scott and Debbie Love who had been with the company since the early ‘90s, invested and became Managing Director and Administration Director respectively with Alan moving to the role of Chairman.
The company intends to remain firmly rooted in Kent, using local suppliers where possible and to continue to grow and prosper at a steady and sustainable rate by offering premium quality cleaning machines backed up by excellent aftersales service.
