Customade Group has become Main Event Sponsor at the G17 awards, which will be held at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 17 November.

Claire Miller, Customade Group’s marketing director, says: “The G Awards are the highlight of the year for our industry and we’re very excited indeed to be part of the event.

“I’m incredibly proud to be in an industry that’s so enthusiastic about progression and improvement. We’re making giant strides in new product development, people and service and awards events such as this are key to celebrating the achievements of the companies and individuals who excel.

“These awards are also about inspiring further development and cultivating talent so it’s terrific to gather everyone together to share our collective passion for the industry and its future. And, of course, it’s a chance for the winners to shout about their achievements, which they should be very proud of.

“This event will be the perfect round-off to the biggest year ever in Customade Group’s history. This year, the Group became the largest fabricator in the UK and we now offer the widest range of fenestration products out there. We have some ambitious plans for the future and I have no doubt that our customers and the industry as a whole will benefit from this combined ability.”

Earlier this year, Polyframe merged with the Customade Group to create the UK’s largest fabricator, with revenues of more than £100 million. The group’s product portfolio now spans across PVC-u and aluminium windows and doors, composite doors, aluminium glazed roof products, sealed glass units and specialist glazing. Operating nationwide, the group employs 900 people in multiple manufacturing sites across the UK.

Delivering industry-leading products and brands, the full-service Customade Group can now serve the entire fenestration industry and is able to satisfy virtually any requirement a customer may have. This market-leading range of products is backed by an unrivalled marketing package which the group is currently extending across all divisions.

Since the merger, the group has maintained a high concentration of dedicated sales staff. This enables customers to continue working alongside their own regional sales manager, whilst being able to access all the products within the group.

Customade Group now includes Polyframe (PVC-u), REAL Aluminium (aluminium), Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions (glazed roofs), Virtuoso (composite and panelled doors), Hourglass Seal (sealed glass units), and Fineline Aluminium (specialist glazing).
