Bi-fold hardware manufacturer Debar has been chosen to be a part of a sustainable trade mission developed by the Department of Business and Trade.

Following a rigorous application process, Debar was successfully selected to join an innovative group involving just 32 other companies from the North of England. Known as the Northern Powerhouse, this group is made up of experienced and forward-thinking businesses from Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle to help create a thriving economy within these cities and the surrounding areas.

With the impending Government objective to decarbonise the UK by 2050, construction and sustainability were placed at the centre of this specific trade mission. In fact, it was specially designed to enable ambitious businesses, like Debar, to share their expertise and experience on a global scale.

Being a part of the Northern Powerhouse has created invaluable opportunities for the Bradford-based firm which, at the end of last year, exhibited at the prestigious Big 5 Global event in Dubai, took part in discussions at COP28 around Dubai’s future vision in reducing carbon emissions and attended a business meeting organised by Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone and hosted by His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi.

Tim Shaw, international sales manager at Debar, was present at all three of the events held in Dubai. Discussing these opportunities, he said: “For many years we’ve been incredibly driven to become more sustainable as a business and so, when we saw the chance to become a part of this formidable group, we knew it was something we couldn’t miss.

“We’re extremely proud that we were picked to join the Department of Business and Trade’s UAE sustainability trade mission and we can’t wait to get stuck in and learn more about the developments in the wider construction industry in UAE and the Middle East.

“We’ll be sure to make the most of this incredible opportunity and we’re looking forward to exploring how our products can offer solutions to the GCC market, understanding more about the process of supply for our products across the GCC and also networking with prospective partners.”

As a company with a keen interest in sustainability, the Bradford-based firm says it only uses sustainable materials in its manufacturing processes and works tirelessly, with the local university, to create innovative solutions designed to reduce energy transfer between the inside and outside of both residential and commercial buildings.
