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 1990s 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.
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.
Duplex have a range of brushes which enable you to clean almost any surface with their machines. Their steam floor scrubbing units are the only machines of their type that have steam generators and results are achieved with just water.
Duplex machines offer wall-to-wall cleaning and start with their compact 240 and go right up to the giant 620.
There is a Duplex machine for any surface in any site.
