Morley Glass and Glazing is in the running to be crowned IGU Manufacturer of the Year at the annual National Fenestration Awards.

The business is up against seven other companies in the category, which is sponsored by Edgetech (UK) Ltd. Competition is strong but Morley feels confident thanks to its commitment to customer service, 10 -day lead time for sealed units with integral blinds inside, and 30% year-on-year growth.

In the past 12 months, the business has launched an updated website, boosted its Screenline spares service and opened a new showroom at its headquarters in Leeds. A recent £700,000 investment has been made in a second IGU production line to allow for increased production capacity, meaning Morley can now manufacture 3000 sealed units with integral blinds inside every week.  Morley has also expanded into the home automation market with the launch of its unique ‘SmartMotion’ interface, all while continuing to offer an industry-leading lead-time of 10 days from 11am any Friday.

Ian Short, managing director of Morley Glass & Glazing, says: “2017 has been a landmark year for Morley Glass which has seen us continue to build on the foundations we established last year when we made the move to our new 50,000sq ft factory. We’ve met every challenge we’ve set for ourselves so far and being named the National Fenestration Awards’ IGU Manufacturer of the Year would be a fantastic end to an exciting 12 months of activity.”

Launched in 2013, the open platform National Fenestration Awards are run and decided completely by the participation of the industry. Instead of judges and panels, winners are chosen by the public. In fact, everyone is welcome to register on the site and make their voices heard before voting closes on Thursday 30 November.
