Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer of warm edge spacer systems and supplier to the insulated glass (IG) industry for over 35 years was announced winner in two categories at the Glass and Glazing Industry’s prestigious G15 Awards event at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Friday 27th November 2015– ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’.

The ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ G-Award is a coveted award by suppliers within the glass and glazing industry and an award that Thermoseal Group has achieved ‘Finalist’ in for several years in a row.  This was the first time the Group entered in for the ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’.

Thermoseal Group’s Managing Director, Gwain Paterson commented:  “I am absolutely delighted to have achieved both of these awards and am particularly pleased that the hard work and dedication of the whole Thermoseal Group team has been recognised in both of these categories.  As a leading component supplier to insulated glass manufacturers, this award is ideal for us and we will be sure to publicise our win as a mark of the high quality of the products and service that we supply to our customers.

“The ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’ award is testament to our spacer bar manufacturing sites in Wigan where we have built a bespoke operation which has required a strong emphasis on training and development to ensure the high quality of our products.  At these sites, we operate a Kaizen method of lean manufacturing where every single member of our teams have either completed or are currently enrolled in external training courses.  All staff are also part of a mentoring system.  Our dedication to training has had a real impact on productivity and reduced wastage.

“The G-Awards is always a fantastic event for us as we have sponsored the champagne reception for many years.  This gives us a great opportunity to raise a glass with our customers and thank those attending the event for their custom.

“Thank you to Tony Higgin and all of the G-Awards team for organising a fantastic event and a big thank you to all of the Thermoseal Group team for contributing to our G15 award wins.  Thanks also to our customers who have contributed to our growth and development over the years.”
