The annual event, started by the long-running Coventry Telegraph newspaper, exists to celebrate success, recognise achievement and showcase Warwickshire’s most outstanding and innovative businesses.
They culminate in a glamorous presentation evening held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, routinely attended by hundreds of members of the area’s business community.
When choosing finalists for the Company of the Year category, judges looked for businesses “universally acclaimed for their commercial practice and dedication”, who could demonstrate “strong market share, economic turnaround and innovative approach”.
The good news came just after Edgetech was nominated as G17 Component Supplier of the Year, and Spacer Bar Manufacturer 2017 in the National Fenestration Awards.
Head of Marketing, Charlotte Davies commented: “At Edgetech, we’re incredibly proud to be a thriving Midlands business, training and employing hundreds of local people over our decade of manufacturing in the area.
“Recently investing over a million pounds in expanding our headquarters, we’re demonstrating our continuing commitment to the people of Coventry and Warwickshire more broadly.
“We’re really looking forward to the awards night itself, and meeting other exceptional businesses from around the region. Good luck to all our fellow nominees.”
Edgetech’s Super Spacer is the leading foam warm edge spacer product on the market, offering easy application, 100% memory and exceptional thermal efficiency and condensation resistance. The firm also manufactures an extensive range of other flexible components, including its commercial-focused TriSeal and T-Spacer and a number of rigid products.
In 2011, Edgetech was acquired by billion-dollar building products giant Quanex. Soon after, Edgetech was merged with Truseal to create the world’s largest warm edge manufacturing site. Edgetech now has three spacer manufacturing facilities located in the USA, UK and Germany and between the sites in excess of 300 million metres of spacer is produced every year.
