Glazerite Golf Tournament

A PUTT IS ALL THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE AT THIS YEAR’S GLAZERITE TROPHY

Sponsoring Wellingborough Golf Club’s PGA (Midlands) competition for the ninth year in a row, July saw Glazerite Windows Limited take part once again in a successful golf day enjoyed by all.

Won by the team made up of Peter Clarke, Mark Davis, Jon Harris and their pro golfer Lee Clarke the  Pro-Am tournament, which took place July 2nd, was followed up the next day by a closely fought 36-hole Glazerite Trophy competition won by former Ryder Cup star Peter Baker.

In a competition that looked like it was heading for a play-off between Baker and Daniel Greenwood of the Forest Pines Golf Club, things changed and got exciting when Baker produced one final special moment at the 18th to which he credits his putter for making the difference. Holing an uphill 20 foot putt to clinch victory on seven-under-par, Baker’s day started off how it was meant to go on with four birdies in his first eight holes of round one.

“It sounds funny but I only played okay this morning,” said Baker. “I just managed to hole an awful lot of putts. It felt like I played better in the afternoon without sinking too many, until the vital one at the end. It’s really pleasing to win a Glazerite at last; I've played in the last four or five and really struggled. This came as a nice surprise because I haven't played well at all this season until this week.”

Last year’s winner Simon Lilly, Wellingborough’s club professional, finished in eighth place on one-under-par, while other pre-tournament favourite Paul Streeter of Lincoln Golf Centre shot a 69 in his second round to finish tied fourth with both Andrew Willey (Bulwell Forest) and Matthew Cort (Rothley Park).

John Hewitt, Managing Director of Glazerite, said: "We're already in the ninth year of what we consider to be a successful partnership with Wellingborough Golf Club and The PGA in England (Midlands), our continued growth sees us inviting more customers along to the Pro-Am event than ever before.

"We had 42 teams enter, which was a record for us, and it is testimony to everyone involved in organising the event and spreading the word and I look forward to doing it all again next year.”

Glazerite strengthens senior management team
The Glazerite UK Group Ltd has strengthened its senior management team with three new appointments and an internal promotion. The operations and technical-focused positions will allow the fabricator to further improve service levels across its three largest sites. Mark Towers joined Glazerite on 7th January 2019 as Bolton-based North West Division General Manager/ Director Designate. With over 25 years’ industry experience, Mark has worked to improve the output of a number of manufacturing operations, ranging from composite doors to glazing, and has also held senior positions at ODL Europe Limited, HansenGlass Processing, and HM Doors. Mark says: “It’s an exciting time to join Glazerite. I’m very much looking forward to working with the team at the Bolton site going forward, with an initial focus to continue improving standards at the site and carry out the investment and extension programme planned for this year.” Taking up the position of Group Operations Manager is Andrew Worroll, who will report directly into Group Operations Director, Ian Lloyd. He has over 20 years’ experience in operations, production and supply chain, and will focus mainly on Glazerite’s Wellingborough sites, in order to free up more of Ian’s time to focus on the Group Operations strategy. In December 2018, Glazerite also welcomed Mitchell Gooch, who took on the role of Group Technical and Processing Support Manager at the fabricator’s Peterborough site. Mitchell, who has previously worked in technical roles at SGM Windows Manufacturing Ltd, won the prestigious Apprentice of the Year G12 award while at Pioneer Trading Company Ltd. In addition to these key appointments, which form part of Glazerite’s strategy to better serve its growing base of installers, the fabricator has also announced that Chris Price is joining the board of Directors as Group Procurement Director. Chris will focus on further improving the product development programme and procurement process across the group going forward. Jason Thompson, Glazerite Director, says: “2018 was a challenging year for us and the industry as a whole. Despite this, we’ve increased our products and services portfolio, and strengthened our sales and marketing team with specialist expertise in areas like digital marketing. We have been stretched in some areas, which highlighted the need to further strengthen our senior management team. Now, with Mark, Andrew and Mitchell in place, we’re in the best possible position to go forward and achieve our plans for growth in 2019 and beyond. Combined with recent and planned future investment, we’re well-placed to serve our growing installer base and help them to become best-in-class.” (Above image from left to right, Andrew Worroll, Mitchell Gooch, Mark Towers)

Glazerite sister company claims a G-award
The Glazerite UK Group Ltd has applauded fellow fabricators, AluFoldDirect, for their win at this year’s G18 Awards. The aluminium bi-folding doors and windows manufacturer won the Fabricator of the Year award, while Glazerite and fellow Wellingborough-based fabricator, Emplas, were runners up at the event, which took place on Friday 30th November at the Hilton Park Lane, London. Glazerite Managing Director, Jason Thompson, says “Winning the award ourselves in 2017 has been a great morale boost for our employees, and for our profile in the industry.  Although there was no award for us this year, we were thrilled for our sister company, Double R, who claimed the award in the Glass Company category and for our installer, The Window Company (Contracts), who succeeded as Installer of the Year.   “We had a fantastic night and would like to say thank you to the organisers. It’s always a great atmosphere and a good opportunity to catch up with old and new faces from across the industry.” Glazerite cemented their 2017 win with some further extensions to their already comprehensive portfolio, including new styles and colours across their composite doors and the addition of Residence 7 as a third option to their Flush Sash range. The next 12 months will see a major investment plan for Glazerite across its sites, including plant, machinery and factory expansion, in order to further support the growth of its ambitious business plans.
