USGlass Magazine, one of the most influential and wide-reaching specialist magazines in the USA, called for the readers vote and the flexible spacer won the Readers ‘Choice Award 2019’ in the category “Spacers for insulating glass”.
The readers of the Door and Window Market Magazine (DWM) chose Super Spacer® as their preferred window component.
In Great Britain too Edgetech / Quanex had reason to celebrate, with an impressive 91.5 percent of all votes cast Edgetech Super Spacer® won the National Fenestration Award, an award with which the British window industry honours the best every year, in the “Spacer Bar Manufacturer” category.
“An audience award is of course always the best thing that can happen to you as a manufacturer,” commented Joachim Stoss, Managing Director of Edgetech Europe GmbH and Vice President International Sales at Quanex. “We are very happy about this trust, which is expressed in numbers on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Edgetech Europe GmbH, based in Heinsberg, has achieved another record year in 2019. According to Joachim Stoss, “the success of the Super Spacer® flexible silicone foam-based spacer can be attributed to two industry trends: the growing importance of energy-efficient building products and the global shift to automated production of insulating glass.”
“In addition, the flexible corporate structure within our parent company, the Quanex Group, makes a decisive contribution to ensuring that we are excellently positioned for the future”, added Mr. Stoss. George Wilson, the new Quanex CEO, knows the business inside out as he was responsible for the insulating glass business for many years before his appointment. “George Wilson is a passionate supporter of the “Think globally, act locally!” Strategy. Addressing the different customer needs in the respective markets and reacting quickly to changes was and is our strength,” continued Mr. Stoss.
