Dura Composites was established in 1996 when the company first began selling fibreglass GRP grating for use as anti-slip walkways in the Marine and Industrial sectors. Over the past quarter of a century the product range has expanded to include Glass Reinforced Polymer Trench Covers, Profiles, Handrail, Stair Treads and the market-leading Dura Deck and Dura Cladding made from low-maintenance Composite Timber. The company’s mission is to supply pioneering composite product solutions that inspire new ideas and promote safety, durability and longevity – and this exceptional Innovation award marks the culmination of another extremely successful year.

Dura Composites is delighted to have secured funding from Tendring District Council’s SME Growth Fund (joint funded by Essex Council) to support its own investment into the redevelopment of an existing Clacton on Sea warehousing site into a new Operations Centre that will provide extra capacity for both manufacturing and storage of stock items prior to despatch and additional job roles.

Speaking about the Tendring SME Growth Scheme, Stuart Burns of Dura Composites said: “The new Operations Centre will make a huge difference to our business, and we have made significant capital investment into completely redeveloping and expanding the site. We are extremely grateful for the additional funding support from Tendring District Council, without which this project would not have been possible. We commend their commitment to championing the workforce talent within the region and the wealth of opportunity that is yet to be explored. We look forward to the future and to continuing to create job opportunities and foster innovation”.

We help companies of all sizes unlock the power of composites. We empower our knowledgeable staff to inspire, educate and problem-solve for customers so they can employ durable, performance-improving and cost-effective solutions.
