REHAU customer Windowmate, which has trade counters and retail outlets in both Bangor and Belfast, has just scooped a prestigious North Down Business Award recognising its growth and success over the past year.

Windowmate was a joint winner in the Business Development category for companies with fewer than 10 employees, and Operations Director Lee Dempster and Regional Sales Manager Thomas McAllister received a trophy from host Peter Snodden at the awards ceremony held recently in Bangor.

Windowmate was recognised at the awards for its success this year, particularly at its Bangor branch where overall sales are up 11% and trade sales in particular are up by 37%.

The company also demonstrated to the judges its innovation in terms of creating a ‘smart’ website, developing new training programmes for staff and introducing new products to the range including internal uPVC doors and new composite doors alongside a complete range of REHAU frames.

Lee Dempster, Operations Director at Windowmate said: “This is a great testament to the hard work of the whole Windowmate team and I am delighted with this award. We are a small but dynamic company and, as our sales and reputation continue to grow in Northern Ireland, I am confident that this growth will continue in the year ahead.”

Windowmate was first established in Belfast in 2001 as a trade counter business and opened its second branch in Bangor in 2014.
