Leading VEKA fabricator, the Glazerite UK Group Ltd, has joined the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF). Membership to the GGF opens up easy access to a number of benefits, including technical support, regulatory advice, networking and alignment with some of the most powerful industry brands.
Jason Thompson, Group Managing Director of Glazerite, says of the move: “The GGF is committed to driving standards in the glass and glazing sector, as well as promoting best practice at all times. That’s what we aspire to as a fabricator; for our customers and the homeowner. With their restructure and expansion plans announced at the start of this year, it’s clear the GGF and its associated companies have already become a lot more proactive, particularly on the consumer-facing side.”
He adds: “Membership to the GGF will give us access to their conciliation scheme, regional meetings and the opportunity to network with like-minded organisations, which helps us all. We’ll also be kept up to date with the latest industry guidance, which we can pass onto our installer partners, including upcoming legislation changes and technical support. The GGF brand is well recognised in the industry and TrustMark in particular is heavily recognised by members of the public, architects and specifiers, which will really help across our customer base.”
Kevin Buckley, GGF Chief Executive, comments: “It’s great to welcome a forward thinking, national trade fabricator such as Glazerite into our membership. We look forward to further developing our strong working relationship for mutual benefit.”
Anda Gregory, Managing Director of GGF commercial company FENSA, adds: “It’s good to hear Glazerite has joined the GGF. There’s no doubt that installers using suppliers with GGF membership gives reassurance down the supply chain and through to homeowners, when installations are carried out. It provides homeowners with the confidence that they are investing in professional workmanship as well as products and services of the very highest standard.”
