Super Spacer Alpha wins Manufacturing Innovation Award

Launched just six months ago, Super Spacer Alpha® has won Manufacturing Innovation of the year in Insider’s Made in the Midlands Awards.

The new premium warm edge flexible spacer bar manufactured by Edgetech UK, a Quanex company, took the top spot for innovation.   

“To win for a brand new product is superb,” says Alan Fielder, Director of Sales and Marketing, who collected the winning trophy at the award ceremony on 20 May. “Super Spacer Alpha’s innovative design came through reverse engineering Super Spacer. We developed a new profile shape, creating the most thermally efficient spacer bar. The design is set to provide major benefits to customers and manufacturers using it can make highly energy efficient units without any increase in cost.”

Super Spacer Alpha offers improved performance and creates a strong reason for manufacturers upgrading equipment to switch over. Edgetech already has advance orders valued at £1 million a year.

The Midlands is at the heart of UK manufacturing and competition for the award was strong. This was recognised by the award organisers Insider Media. Of Edgetech’s winning product, Super Spacer Alpha, judges wrote: “Coventry-based Edgetech’s latest innovation is the most thermally efficient insulated glass unit spacer bar in the world, giving customers up to 66 percent increase in productivity and 20 percent reduction in sealant usage. The judges were delighted to see so many companies putting innovation at the heart of their businesses. But Edgetech’s work in the glazing industry gave it the real edge.”

Edgetech’s Marketing Manager Charlotte Davies joined Alan to collect the coveted prize from host Declan Curry at the NEC’s Hilton Metropole at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 20 May. For a full list of winners and finalists go to:
