Edgetech has scooped a second Manufacturing Award

Edgetech UK, a Quanex company, has scooped its second award for manufacturing in the Coventry Telegraph Business Awards within just five weeks of winning Manufacturing Innovation in Made in the Midlands.

Edgetech has again proved its credentials as a leading UK manufacturer.   

Since 2007 Edgetech has manufactured Super Spacer® from its Coventry base and supports customers who manufacture over 30,000 insulated glass units per working day in the UK. In the last year, it has also expanded its ‘Just Add Glass’ range of products making it one of the biggest suppliers of IGU components.

“Being recognised for manufacturing excellence in our home city is a fantastic accolade for the production team at Edgetech,” says John Stark, Edgetech’s Works Manager who collected the award at the ceremony at the Ricoh Arena.

Manufacturing is at the heart of Edgetech and its latest product Super Spacer Alpha® was highlighted as an example of innovation in the award. Designed in-house by reverse engineering its top selling Super Spacer, Alpha’s new chamfered shape is designed to make the manufacturing process easier and

quicker and, at the same time, reduces sealant usage by 20 percent. It has high levels of energy efficiency with a thermal transmittance of 0.13W/m2K, making it the best performing spacer bar in the world.

“Competition for the awards was high as the Midlands is the strongest region in the UK for manufacturing, which makes winning even sweeter,” adds John.

At the ceremony Coventry Telegraph editor Keith Perry said: “We have a long history of innovation in the area and we’ve been able to prove tonight that firms based here are still at the forefront of many industries and creating new jobs and wealth for the people who live here.”

The award ceremony was hosted by comedian Dominic Holland at the Ricoh Arena on Friday 19 June. For a full list of winners and finalists visit www.ctbusinessawards.co.uk/2015/winners.
