Another Solidor AwardComposite door pioneer, Solidor, has added to their ever expanding trophy cabinet in achieving Business of the Year in the Sentinel Business Awards, with managing director Gareth Mobley being awarded Entrepreneur of the Year for the second year running.

The 18th Sentinel Business Awards proved to be the biggest in its history with around 130 submissions from a broad range of companies committed to growth, developing skills and driving innovation in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire. Few could argue with the award for Solidor after the incredible success of the business over the last 12 months, with growth in excess of 91% and product development that continues at a pace.

Solidor has already won G13 Promotional Campaign of the Year – Retail, which was largely based on the company’s impressive ability to have reached consumers with their brand. New literature and a new consumer facing website have done much to drive sales leads to a Recommended Installer network of over 400 independent companies throughout the UK and Ireland.

This latest award shows just how impressive the company’s performance has been with growth continuing at the same rate for the current financial year and the promise of two new composite door sets for launch at the forthcoming FIT Show. The award of Entrepreneur of the Year for the second year running for Gareth Mobley is also perfect evidence of a new generation of hungry and dynamic business people in the glazing industry eager to make their mark.

Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor comments: ‘This award reflects the hard work of everyone at Solidor and our business partners, as we have a truly inspirational team. But we must now focus on the continued growth and development of the business as we further cement ourselves as the premium composite door of choice in the industry.’
