British housewares manufacturer Dualit will celebrate its 70-year anniversary on October 16.
Founded by Max Gort-Barten (CBE) in 1945, the independently owned, third generation family business is well-known for its Classic Toaster collection.
To commemorate its anniversary, Dualit is introducing new colour Midnight Blue into the collection, which will be available from August.
Each Classic Toaster is hand-built by the same person from start to finish in Dualit’s factory in West Sussex and features the name of the assembler on the base plate. Used in homes, restaurants, cafes, hotels and even on a nuclear submarine as well as first class aircraft cabins, Dualit Classic Toasters have a dedicated following and have been known to be passed down through generations.
Over the last 70 years, the Classic Toaster has been available in a rainbow of colour choices. Dualit is currently offering its recently launched, multi-patented Classic Kettle in a range of these colours from the last 70 years, including the new Midnight Blue, so customers can own a matching set.
As part of its 70-year celebrations, Dualit has launched a worldwide search to find the oldest working Dualit Toaster. The winner will receive a selection of Dualit appliances including an exclusive, limited edition Anniversary Toaster. Details on how to enter can be found at www.dualit.com/70
