The Group’s Marketing Manager, Samantha Hill comments:  “I am extremely proud to work for a UK business to which I have seen a huge and continual private investment in manufacturing products both for the UK market and also to export.  In the 8-plus years I have been working here, I have seen the number of staff increase three-fold, the set-up and growth of our spacer bar manufacturing sites, expansion of our injection moulding division and a complete shift of the business infrastructure to change it from a major UK distributor into a leading UK IG component manufacturer with a worldwide customer base.

“There is a particular pride across the business in our Thermobar and Thermoflex spacer bar manufacturing sites where both rigid and flexible spacer systems are manufactured from raw material compound, and also where we have our own innovation centre to monitor quality and develop new and innovative IG components.  These sites are buzzing with an energy which can only be seen in a business with unprecedented growth and a strong commitment to training and development.

“We now supply over 50% of the UK spacer market and this percentage is increasing on continual basis as more of the window industry see the advantage of Thermobar and Thermoflex.  Thermobar and Thermoflex both have Bundesverband Flachglas Data Sheets detailing their thermal performance of 0.14W/mK and 0.135W/mK respectively.  Both spacers are also Passive House approved with phA and phA+ ratings.  These figures mean that Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer Tube and Thermoflex Silicone Rubber Foam Spacers are the highest thermal performance rigid tube and foam spacer systems currently available in the worldwide market.  They are, of course, fully tested to EN1279 standards and many additional worldwide standards.

“We believe our commitment is worthy of an industry award.  As far as the G-Awards are concerned, we have now done all that we can, but there’s still time for you to vote for us in the NFA awards.  Of course, a cheer when we’re mentioned in the shortlist at the G-Awards is also greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.”
