17 years of experience helps Glazerite scoop G17 fabricator award
The Glazerite UK Group have come a long way from their humble beginnings in 2000, with just one site manufacturing 50 frames per week, to now be crowned the G17 Fabricator of the Year.  "We are thrilled to have won such a highly-coveted award, especially when we were up against some of the finest companies in the industry," said Director Jason Thompson, "It is a great reflection of the hard work and effort consistently put in by everyone across our business." Glazerite's Operations Director Ian Lloyd said: "This year has been a particularly challenging one whilst we have been integrating the new East site into the business. We have continued to invest in its development and expect service levels here to soon be in line with those achieved throughout the rest of the company. Everything is now in place to make 2018 an even better year, with a continued focus on providing our growing base of installer partners with the most comprehensive product portfolio and support packages in the industry. Glazerite will certainly be doing its upmost to retain the trophy at the next G awards." Jason added: "We would also like to congratulate the organisers on the success of the awards as it was a fantastic evening with a great atmosphere. The genuine congratulations we receieved from customers, suppliers and competitors alike were hugely appreciated and celebrating with our installer partner Thistle Windows, who won Conservatory Installer of the Year, was a particular highlight." "Winning this award has been a very proud moment for all at Glazerite, but we could not have done it without our valued customers. Their continued loyalty and support, especially throughout the difficult times, is greatly appreciated. We are also NFA 2017 finalist for Fabricator/Manufacturer of the Year so please vote and help us achieve the double!"

Glazerite grows again with dedicated 'Specials' factory
The Glazerite UK Group has completed the latest phase of its ambitious expansion programme with a major step-up to a 30,000 sq ft Special Products plant, with plans already underway for the next phase. The company's aclaimed Vertical Sliders, Residence Collection products and the VEKA Imagine bi-fold, patio and flush doors will all be made in the purpose-equipped factory by a specially-trained fabrication team with its own dedicated management and Quality Control systems.  The new unit, close to Glazerite's Wellingborough HQ, is more than twice the size off its original Specials factory opened in 2014 and gives further capacity for the group's ever-growing range of niche, premium and specialist windows and doors.  "These are all specialist products," said Group Director Jason Thompson, "So they deserve specialist attention, both in the technology of the manufacturing processes and in the skills of the people involved at all levels. The fact that we have outgrown the original Specials factory in less than three years shows how not only the range but also the volume of demand for these products has grown in that short time. By adding this very spacious new factory, we are not only showing our commitment to the future growth of these products but also adding ample capacity to give the same attention to whatever future trensds have yet to emerge." The launch of the new unit also gives Glazerite a fourth specific production centre, along with Halo fabrication at Glazerite East, the former City Beads factory in Peterborough acquired by the Group last year, and its mainsteam VEKA production at Wellingborough and Bolton. Jason explained the philosophy behind the move:  "We offer one of the most comprehensive product ranges available anywhere but our customers deserve more than just a Jack-of-all-trades. On the other hand, some specialist fabricators have a very limited product offering. Now, with the three seperate centres, each with its own dedicated skills and production lines, we can offer three distinct centres of expertise all from a single buying point." The second phase of development at the Wellingborough site, which will include a showroom and training facility as well as a trade counter to serve its local customer base, is due to be completed early in 2018. The Glazerite UK Group is VEKA's largest trade fabricator in the UK and a long-standing Network VEKA member. It offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants, Peterborough and Greater Manchester as well as its South West distribution hub in Bristol serving South Wales and The West of England.

PVC-U and Aluminium work together for special school colour-coding
When the specification for a new-build special school called for a colour coding of windows with unusual bespoke reveals and cills, the solution came in a combination of PVC-U windows set in made-to-order aluminium surrounds. Birkenhead-based K2 Aluminium Systems Ltd, despite its name, is also an established PVC-U installer, so was ideally placed to come up with the solution based on pressed aluminium cills and exterior reveals around VEKA frames from the Glazerite UK Group. Palmerston School, Liverpool, is a special school for pupils aged 11 to 19 with multiple learning difficulties, and is now housed in the new-built premises replacing an original building nearby. The windows are colour coded in red, blue, yellow and green to help pupils to navigate around the school and to identify different areas. The work, for main contractor Kier Construction, entailed 55 windows, each with four top-openers, in RAL 7012 Basalt Grey foil of white. The aluminium elements were pressed and powder coated to order for K2 and also included an upright panel between each frame and cill to allow additional ventilation space beneath the lower openers. Also in the contract were five glazed doors fabricated in Schueco aluminium. The bespoke elements required careful planning and drawing, as K2 commercial manager Liam Bird explained: “It was quite an unusual specification but one where our background in both PVC-U and aluminium paid dividends. Working with Glazerite on the PVC-U fabrication and with our own experience of aluminium, we were able to complete the work to specification and without problems and the result speaks for itself.” The Glazerite UK Group is VEKA’s largest trade fabricator in the UK and a long-standing member of the Independent Network and its predecessor Network VEKA. It offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants, Peterborough and Greater Manchester as well as its South West distribution hub in Bristol serving South Wales and The West of England.
