The President of the GGF, Phil Brown commented, “Despite the fragile state of the UK economy, it was very encouraging to see that the Federation was able to recruit new companies to membership.”
The Annual Report also highlights many of the campaigns and projects the GGF has been consistently working on since 2010 including technical and political issues such as Green Deal.
Nigel Rees, Chief Executive underlined the GGF’s activity “Although Green Deal has taken up a great deal of time and effort, we have made huge strides in improving Government’s understanding and awareness of the glass and glazing industry and its energy efficient products.”
Within the Annual Report the GGF also revealed its plans to conduct a Strategy Review covering activities, structure, governance and resource levels. The outcome of this review is expected in 2012 and should map out a clear strategic direction for the GGF over the next five years.
The Annual Report 2010 also touches on the Federation’s recent work to date and underlines the intentions to strive for new and better benefits to support all GGF members regardless of size, profile or market position.
Nigel Rees concluded, “Our members have helped us stay relatively strong throughout 2010 and we are therefore optimistic about the future, setting the standards with our technical expertise and continuing to be the voice of the industry in the political arena.
The best members in the industry deserve the best trade federation and we will ensure we retain this position”
