Industry recognition for Polyframe at G14 Awards
On a night that recognises excellence in the Glass and Glazing Industry, Polyframe were announced as “Fabricator of the Year 2014” at the annual G14 Awards in front of over 650 industry professionals at the Hilton Hotel in London.
The Fabricator of the Year award is the most sought after and prestigious award in the industry and it is a testament to the growth that Polyframe have experienced over recent years.
Polyframe, founded in 1992 by Martyn Buckley and the late Mario Earley, fabricating just 40 frames a week, have grown into the largest independent fabricator of Windows, Doors and Conservatories in the UK. The growth of the business has been unprecedented during the past five years with turnover increasing over 450% between 2009 and 2014. Significant investment has been made during this time with four new factories being opened and new production lines being installed at both Halifax and Norwich.
Peter Dyson, Polyframe Sales Director, commented, “It is a great honour to be named as Fabricator of the Year, an award we are proud to receive. It is just reward for all the hard work and dedication that all employees at Polyframe give to the company and a reflection of the business strategy that we have followed. We always strive to supply the highest quality products and levels of service to all our customers, and it is our staff that make this possible”.
The ethos of Polyframe has always been to grow the business, manufacture quality products and to innovate. This is set to continue with the opening of the new Ridings Factory, in Halifax, during 2015. Plans for the new Ridings site are ambitious and as well as further manufacturing space Polyframe also have plans for a training academy and further office space at the new facility. Central to the expansion programme is the ability for Polyframe to be able to consolidate the products manufactured at the two Halifax factories and maximise efficiencies and space.
The G14 Award is the second prize Polyframe have received in 2014 following the Yorkshire Post Business Awards at which Polyframe were named as Business of the Year.
