We are looking forward to the much anticipated annual North Devon Manufacturers Awards taking place in Barnstaple this evening.
Hosted by the North Devon Manufacturers Association (NDMA), 157 guests will be representing manufacturing companies from across North Devon; a rich and vibrant celebration of the buoyant manufacturing sector in the region.
Our sector sadly lacks recognition from central government which prefers to focus on tourism and agriculture. So it’s with great pleasure that we welcome a representative from the South West LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) to join us and hopefully feed back to government the importance of manufacturing to the economy here.
Our very special guest speaker is Stephen Roberts from North Devon Hospice, the beneficiary of the evenings fund raising.
Dymond recently started providing metalwork fabrication for a new joinery client. We were delighted to receive the following email and wanted to share it with you.
“We are so happy with the quality, service and communication with your guys. Everyone we meet from Dymond, is so helpful; you were a Dymond find – excuse the pun!!”
Pun is definitely excused! Thank you so much for your lovely comments.
Announcing Dymond’s galvanised Pheasant and Partridge Feeders – designed by Gamekeepers for Gamekeepers.
Used and approved by the Maristow Shoot, Tregoyd Shoot and Spreacombe Shoot.
“These are excellent feeders which we have been using for a number of years. They have proved to be stock proof and also keep the feed dry in wet and misty conditions”. Brian Stevens, Spreacombe Shoot.
See details below.
These high quality bird feeders are manufactured from 1.2mm galvanised steel and provide a generous feed area of 2 metres, which holds 60 kilos of feed / pellets. And a central baffle plate ensures even feed distribution on sloping ground.

Dymond Engineering attended a very useful Hinkley C event hosted by Petroc College in Exeter last week.
Delivered in partnership with EDF, Somerset Chamber and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), the event focused on the demand Hinkely C will put on the workforce and skills here in the South West, and the steps now being put in place to address those needs.
The Hinkley C development is regarded as a ‘transformational opportunity’ for the South West; indeed EDF has a huge incentive to engage with local businesses and workforce, with a requirement that 34% of all employment must come from within a 90 minute commute of the site.
It’s very helpful to local SMEs to have such forward-thinking support and engagement at this early stage of the development, and Dymond Engineering is very excited by the opportunities presented for metalwork fabrication of consumables and components for the extensive utilities requirements.
