The race is on for companies in the glazing industry now that the National Fenestration Awards (NFAs) shortlist has been announced. Sponsoring the IGU Manufacturer 2016 category is Edgetech UK, the driving force for energy efficient glazing.
Charlotte Davies, Head of Marketing at Edgetech UK explains: “The NFAs are really refreshing because the people who have day-to-day dealings with businesses in the industry are invited to get involved. They vote for the companies that truly deserve credit for the service they offer all year around.
“They are a real measure of how a business is seen by the industry and Jason, AKA Double Glazing Blogger, has done a brilliant job of bringing them to the forefront of the glazing awards agenda.
“We’ve chosen to sponsor the IGU Manufacturer category to support recognition of the IGU Manufacturers delivering a quality service to the industry at a difficult point in the supply chain. They deserve extra credit for delivering increasing performance, application and cost saving requirements being placed on them by market conditions.”
Three of the finalists in the IGU Manufacturer 2016 category are Edgetech customers.
Charlotte continues: “It’s fantastic to see our customers on the shortlist for this award – I just wish I could have three votes!”
Jason Grafton-Holt, co-founder and Director of the National Fenestration Awards, added: “It’s great to have Edgetech on board for this year’s NFAs. We want to work with some of the industry’s leading companies, and as previous winners, Edgetech are a great addition to the growing NFA family.”
Edgetech won the 2015 NFA for Spacer Bar Manufacturer and has made the shortlist again this year.
NFA Voting for all categories is open now until 30 November 2016 and the winners will be announced on 5 December 2016.
Charlotte adds: “I would urge everyone in the industry to take 5 minutes to cast their vote in this year’s NFAs, especially if you have dealt with a company this year that has proven real excellence in their field.”
The NFA winner’s event will be held in early 2017.
