Edgetech Wins Best Use of Events & Exhibitions

The only dedicated manufacturer of Warm Edge Technology in the UK, Edgetech, has been announced a winner in the Best Use of Events and Exhibitions category in the Built Environment Marketing Awards (BEMAs), previously the Construction Marketing Awards (CMAs). “This prestigious accolade has been awarded for the success of the industry ‘Energy Efficiency in Focus – Revisited’ seminar we organised and hosted in February,” says Andy Jones, Edgetech Managing Director. “Our entry in this category was recognised because we had identified the need for the right event at the right time, and provided a format and content that was on target and useful to companies operating in a difficult market. Some companies put on events to sell their wares or purely to market their brand, but Edgetech has been recognised in this award for providing the marketplace with an opportunity to hear from impartial experts on legislation and important market and product developments that would be affecting their businesses in the months and years to come.

“Because we work closely with so many companies across the supply chain as well as the Glass and Glazing Federation, Energy Saving Trust, British Fenestration Ratings Council and the Energy Efficiency Partnership in Homes Committee, we think we are well placed to understand the broader issues that are important to people now, as well as the issues that will be crucial in tomorrow’s marketplace. We’re thrilled that the event has been recognised by such a prestigious award. Watch this space for more from Edgetech next year!”

Edgetech wins place in Construction Products Association Showcase

Edgetech, the only dedicated Warm Edge Technology manufacturer in the UK, has secured a place in the Construction Products Association Innovation and Achievement Showcase 2009 for its Super Spacer TriSeal product. “We’re delighted to have been included in the showcase, taking our place along side other big names like Marley, Knauf Insulation and Hanson,” says Edgetech Managing Director, Andy Jones. “To win this accolade, we had to prove why TriSeal is different and innovative and the real benefits it offers the end user, namely its improvement in thermal conductivity over and above other Warm Edge products of up to 50%. With such tough competition across the entire construction industry, we’re thrilled that Edgetech is representing its customers in this field.”

Ian Lucas, Minister for Business at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills commented on the showcase: “I want to start by saying how encouraged and impressed I am by the resilience and determination construction firms have shown over the past 12 months. The CPA Innovation and Achievement showcase is evidence that Britain is still a nation of innovators, delivering products and solutions that will shape the industry in the years ahead.”

Edgetech I.G. Named in Inc. 5000 List for 3rd Consecutive Year

For the third year in a row, Edgetech I.G. has been recognised as one of Inc. 5000?s fastest growing companies in the United States with 19.5% sales growth from 2005 to 2008. The Inc. 5000 is an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list.

“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”

According to Edgetech’s President, Mike Hovan, “We have the processes, products and personnel in place to maintain our leadership position in the industry for the years to come. But honours, such as making the Inc. 5000 list for three years in a row, serve as a reminder to thank those who have contributed to Edgetech’s continued success for more than 20 years – our employees and our customers. They are trendsetters who represent the best of the industry and it is because of them we continue to grow and seek new ways to add value to the industry.”

Edgetech Sponsors G09 Awards

The only dedicated manufacturer of Warm Edge Technology in the UK, Edgetech, is pleased to announce that it will once again be sponsoring the G09 Awards to be held at Wembley following the second regional G09 exhibition, where the company will also be exhibiting. Alan Fielder, Director of Sales and Marketing at Edgetech explains why the company is backing this industry event: “We continuously invest in working with our customers to grow their sales, but we also want to show our support for the industry at large. There’s no denying that our industry in particular has been through a tough time this year, but amongst all the doom and gloom it’s important to remember and give recognition to the companies that have done something special, grown their sales and continued to drive their business forward while others have pulled back. As well as paying recognition to the success stories in the industry, these established awards also provide a great opportunity for the industry to network and share new ideas. We hope to see you at the event on Thursday 1st October and if you’re entering an award – good luck!”
