Following another extremely busy year of investment in the Group’s infrastructure in addition to continual development of its Technical Centre and IG component manufacturing facilities; And all whilst dealing with the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit, Thermoseal Group has won yet another award. At the Glass and Glazing Industry’s prestigious G21 event at the Hilton on Park Lane on 26th November, the Thermoseal Group team were presented with the ‘Best Component Supplier’ Award.
Thermoseal Group’s business development has been non-stop over recent years and the awards have been coming in thick and fast. Just over the past 12 months, the Group has been ‘ranked no. 96 in the Sunday Times HSBC International Fast Track 200’ and voted ‘Spacer Bar Manufacturer of the Year’ in the National Fenestration Awards for both 2020 and 2021.
In 2020, in the face of the backlash of Covid-19 and Brexit, the Group saw a 21% increase in export sales whilst coping with massive swings in UK trade. With an eye on the future requirements for its Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers, the Group also set up a new ‘Centre for Innovation and Manufacturing’, expanded its technical centre, increased production capacity with additional machinery and greater automation to meet growing demand for its spacers and injection-moulded fittings, and achieved Investors in People 6th Generation standards… all whilst offering a first-class service to its customers.
Sales Director Mark Hickox, says: “We are delighted to win such a prestigious award amongst such a broad spectrum of businesses within the window industry who offer excellent products and service to their customers.
“The past year hasn’t been easy for anyone. The window industry, whilst gaining a welcome influx of business spurred on by everyone spending more time at home, has also been fraught with a multitude of supply issues which have severely impacted on the price and service we can all offer.
“This award is testament to the hard work of our team who have worked very closely with our customers to ensure that we continue to service their component requirements to the best of our ability. It is also testament to our customers who continue to spur us on to continually improve. I’d like to thank everyone involved in helping us to achieve this award and thank you to all customers, staff, suppliers and industry contacts who have supported our award wins and continue to cheer with us.”
