VIPs gather to mark decade of manufacturing

Warm edge experts Edgetech welcomed VIPs from throughout the industry to a celebration marking a decade of UK manufacturing.

The company’s Coventry factory became the first warm edge manufacturing facility in the country back in 2007. Exactly ten years on, dignitaries including Bill Griffiths and George Wilson from parent company Quanex and John Blundell, Deputy Lord Mayor of Coventry, marked the anniversary by officially opening a $1.3m extension to the same site.

Attendees heard presentations from Edgetech UK Managing Director Chris Alderson, President of Quanex IG Systems George Wilson, who has since been promoted to COO of the Quanex Group, Quanex Chairman and CEO Bill Griffiths, as well as industry expert Andrew Scott, Managing Director of Insight Data. Guests were also treated to a virtual tour of the new facilities.

“We were absolutely delighted to welcome so many colleagues, customers, members of the media and others to our HQ to celebrate such a major milestone and unveil our new facilities,” comments Chris Alderson, Edgetech UK Managing Director. “This event has given us a fantastic opportunity to reflect on everything we’ve accomplished over the last decade, and to say thank you to our customers, many of whom have been with us since day one.

“It also gave us the chance to share our vision for the next decade and beyond – and demonstrate both our strong relationship with Quanex, and our unwavering commitment to product research and development.”

The Quanex Chairman’s Safety Award was presented to Works Manager John Stark to recognize Edgetech UK’s impeccable safety record, while Head of Marketing Charlotte Davies received a £1,000 donation from the company towards her efforts for Paddle2Pedal, the all-female event from GM Fundraising that will see 12 fenestration professionals canoe, abseil and cycle hundreds of miles in August to raise money for the Hope House Children’s Hospice.

Attendees made generous charity donations also totaling £1,000 sterling and – reflecting the international guest-list – a further £500 in dollars and euros which brings Charlotte’s fundraising total so far to over £4,000.

The event culminated with a fun-filled medieval banquet, and Edgetech’s annual golf event the following day.
