As reigning Glass and Glazing Industry G-Awards 2015 winner of ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’, Thermoseal Group has again been shortlisted as finalist in both of these 2016 categories. In addition, the Group is a finalist for ‘Spacer Bar Manufacturer of the Year’ in the National Fenestration Awards, Wigan Business Awards ‘Exporter of the Year’ and ‘Employer Supporting Apprentices’, and also Amazon’s prestigious Growing Business Awards ‘Export Champion of the Year’.
“The constant investment into our Innovation Centre, manufacturing facility, business infrastructure, staff training and development, and drive into the export market at Thermoseal Group is being recognised”, says Samantha Hill, Group Marketing Manager. “We offer two of the highest performance warm edge spacer bars available worldwide and have several new products currently in development – some of which are patent-pending. We now manufacture over 50% of the products we supply and intend to continue to manufacture further products over the coming years.
“In 2015, there was a 95% increase in export business coming from our expanding network of customers – many of which are distributors within each market in 22 countries within: Asia; Australia and Oceania; Europe; North America and South America. We are now set for 100% growth in export sales in 2016 and also have a growing number of UK customers opting for our UK-manufactured spacers and in-house injection moulded accessories.
“Regardless of whether we win or not, we are delighted to be up for such a prestigious array of awards and look forward to seeing the results in the coming months. We would like to thank all of our customers and staff for their contribution to our success and we look forward to seeing our industry contacts and many long-standing customers and friends at the up-and-coming G-Awards Gala dinner on 18th November to be hosted at the Hilton on Park Lane Hotel in London.
