Glazerite installers have beaten all-comers yet again, scooping half of all the Regional trophies in the annual Network VEKA awards – plus the coveted all-UK customer satisfaction trophy once again.
Customers of the trade fabricator took no fewer than five of the ten Regional awards, plus the national trophy and Fitter of the Year, as well as numbering 12 of the total 30 finalists and gaining three new entries into the organisation’s elite 100% Club.
Overall champion this year was last year’s Best Newcomer, Frames Conservatories Direct of Bury St Edmunds, also winning top Regional for the East of England. Shane Howells held the West of England title and KJM Windows retained the South – both for the sixth time – while Goliath Homeworld had a fifth win for the Midlands and Cheadle Glass won a second time for the North West, and Fitter of the Year went to Ronnie Pym and Mark Barnfield of Frames Conservatories Direct.
Glazerite Director Jason Thompson said after the awards: “Once again, our customers have shown that they are among the best of the best in Network VEKA and we are proud of them all. We have always encouraged our customer members to commit themselves 100% to everything the organisation stands for and to make full use of everything it offers. With such a superb showing on the trophy table, they have proved this to be the only way to go.”
All the trophies were presented by Network VEKA brand ambassador Steve Davis at the organisation’s AGM and Gala Dinner at the Holiday Inn, Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday (Mar 21).
Last year, Glazerite customers took six Regional trophies as well as UK Champion, Best Newcomer and 13 of the 30 finalist slots. In 2013 they took four Regionals and 10 of the finalists.
