Uni-Blinds® integral blinds manufacturer Morley Glass, the UK’s largest manufacturer of Screenline® blinds integrated within double glazed units, has been nominated for more National Fenestration Awards (NFAs) than ever after being shortlisted for six awards in the 2021 programme.
The company hopes to build on its 2020 NFAs success, when it picked up four awards including in the Covid Heroes category, as well as receiving a special mention.
Three of the 2021 nominations for Morley Glass are for awards that the company won in 2020: Best Use of Video, IGU Manufacturer and Integral Blinds Company. This time, Morley Glass is also in the running for Digital Marketing Campaign of the Year and New Product and Recycling Company, reflecting the depth of its proactive approach to sales and marketing, R&D and sustainability.
In addition to being a finalist in these corporate awards, two members of the Morley Glass team have also received nominations for individual awards. Marketing assistant Charlotte Gilbert has been named a finalist in the Social Networker and Young Person categories, along with Bryony Shaw, sales advisor, also on the shortlist for the Young Person award.
The NFAs are awarded based on the number of votes received. Anyone working in the UK door and window industry can vote online here until 4th November at 4pm. The winners will be announced at a presentation event at Doncaster Racecourse two days later.
Ian Short, MD of Morley Glass, said, “We’re really excited to be nominated for so many awards and look forward to the 2021 NFAs presentation on November 6th. Congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted and the very best of luck!
“Being shortlisted matters hugely because it provides important external recognition that we are on-track with our business. The whole Morley Glass team works hard every day to create the highest quality products backed with outstanding service, but the best way to gauge how well we are doing is through industry awards – that’s why the NFAs are key to the fenestration industry.”
In the past 12 months, Morley Glass has experienced an upsurge in demand for its range of integral Venetian and pleated Uni-Blinds®, all of which are produced in its state-of-the-art factory near Leeds using the world-renowned Screenline® blinds systems from Italian manufacturer Pellini S.p.A.
In tandem with increased production volumes for its established integral blinds range in 2021, Morley Glass has launched several new products and developed its glass recycling operation, which takes post-consumer glass back from installers working on replacement projects to be recycled – raising funds for good causes in the process.
