about us
We are based in Shipley, West Yorkshire, located in close proximity to the large northern cities of Leeds and Bradford with excellent transport links. Paul Stenton, the Managing Director of DES has worked for the business for over 20 years. Paul joined straight from school starting as a Machine Operator, working his way up to Operations Manager and overseeing the day to day running of the production facility.

In 2008 he became a Director and in 2011 Paul bought out the previous Managing Director to become the majority shareholder. In 2011 the company was operating with just 4 employees from an old cotton mill in Otley, West Yorkshire. However, Paul saw potential in the business and an opportunity to grow through re-investment and hard work with the support of fellow Director’s and a dedicated workforce.

Today, DES operates from a new and bigger location with 15 members of staff and 9 CNC machine centres operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Paul continues to be the main point of contact for all customer queries, from enquiry stage right through to delivery of the finished order, providing continuity to each customer.
