This year Duval Products reaches the milestone of having been a Dexion distributor for 50 years. To celebrate the occasion Matt Grierson, Dexion Sales Director and Maël Pichereau, Dexion Distributor Manager, presented Duval Director, Steve Kippen, with an award.
A family business for over 60 years, the then Managing Director, Doug Kippen (now retired), initiated Duval Products becoming a Dexion Distributor in 1961, after deciding to use Speedframe to construct office partitioning and desks in preference to welded frames. After his sons, Steve and Geoff, joined the business in 1978, Duval Products decided to offer the full Dexion product range and since then the business has gone from strength to strength.
Now based in Lower Kingswood, near Reigate, Surrey and operating throughout Central London and along the A3 corridor to Guildford, the company utilises Dexion products in a wide range of applications for a diverse range of companies that include well-known names such as the BBC, the NHS, Tate Galleries, BSkyB, House of Frazer, Cisco, Metropolitan Police and Legal & General.
"We receive orders ranging from just £50 to over £50,000 and process between 100 and 150 orders a month", says Steve Kippen. "We pride ourselves on our care and personal service, so being a Dexion distributor not only ensures that we are able to offer a wide product range, but also means that we can meet all our customer needs including prompt delivery and quality products."
Commenting Matt Grierson said: "The Dexion range has changed and grown over the past 50 years but our professional attitude and service remains unchanged."
