The appearance of a number of glazing companies in the prestigious ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2016’ report reinforces the strong standing of the industry, according to glazing & construction marketing specialist Balls2 Marketing.
The third annual report, created by the London Stock Exchange Group and published in conjunction with the Daily Telegraph, celebrates the achievements of the UK’s most inspiring and fastest-growing small to medium enterprises (SMES). It is now regarded as a vital snapshot of UK business success and is backed by business leaders including the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne.
The 2016 report is notable for the inclusion of several glazing systems manufacturers and fabricators, including Shepley, Stevenswood, HL Plastics, CMS Enviro Systems, Sliders UK, Clayton Glass, Stormking Plastics, Dekko, Polyframe, Kalsi Plastics and CWG Choices.
“It’s heartening to see that Britain’s business community recognises the exceptional work taking place in the UK glazing sector,” comments Andy Balls, Managing Director of Balls2 Marketing.
“Glazing is a dynamic industry that showcases the best in UK manufacturing. Companies are continuing to invest and to innovate, and the result is a range of solutions made with precision, delivered within fast lead times and tailored to what customers actually want.
“It’s no coincidence that glazing was amongst the fastest sectors to come out of the recession. The industry recognised the possibilities in home improvements – today, glazing solutions are being created that offer unmatched security and thermal efficiency, while achieving exceptional aesthetics.
“That gives homeowners and developers the confidence to invest in their properties by adding windows and doors that not only look good but deliver in long-term performance and reliability.
“And, obviously, the industry’s success has a positive knock-on effect in terms of the UK’s wider employment and growth figures – no wonder the London Stock Exchange Group is taking notice.
“On a personal note, it’s brilliant that three of our clients have been named in the list, not to mention several other organisations who are supply partners to clients,” Andy adds.
