Morley Glass & Glazing is celebrating having achieved three first place finishes at the 2020 National Fenestration Awards.
The integral blinds manufacturer came out on top in all three categories it was nominated in: Integral Blinds Company, Best Use of Video and IGU Manufacturer, which it shared jointly with Clayton Glass. It is the business’s fourth consecutive year taking home the IGU Manufacturer prize, and third time as winner of the Integral Blinds Company category.
The business was also one of three companies named a COVID Hero by the awards, as acknowledgement of their investment in virtual showrooms for installers during and after the national lockdown. Finally, Morley Glass received a Special Mention for its tireless charity work for local causes throughout 2020.
The open platform NFAs are the fenestration industry’s fastest-growing independent awards and are unique as winners are decided completely by the public. Organisers of the awards have revealed that 7,658 individual votes were registered for 163 finalists between 18th September and 24th November, the most ever recorded in their seven-year history.
The winners’ announcement was made via the FENEX YouTube channel on Monday 7th December, after plans to announce winners at the doors, windows and hardware exhibition could no longer go ahead.
Ian Short, managing director at Morley Glass & Glazing comments: “These awards are a fantastic way to bring a turbulent year for the industry to a close. Despite the obvious challenges, 2020 has seen our manufacturing capacity increase from an average of 2,400 to 3,500 integral blinds a week and our turnover has grown to reflect this. Our success is a real team effort and we’re very proud and grateful of the excellent supply chain we have behind us.
“This year we have also taken the time to invest in our Morley Glass & Glazing YouTube channel, with the help of video marketing specialist Video Production 4, so winning the award for Best Use of Video was a great recognition of all our hard work.”
All the winners in the 25 unique categories and two specialist categories in the National Fenestration Awards will be invited to a special Winners Event held by the award organisers in the New Year.
