In 2021, Chris Alderson, Edgetech’s respected Managing Director, has marked his five year anniversary at the company.

Chris joined the world-renowned warm-edge spacer manufacturer back in 2016, after more than twenty years spent in a series of senior roles at adhesive and sealant experts Bostik.

The sales, operations and management expertise he gained there made him the perfect choice to take the helm at Edgetech.

Under Chris’ leadership, Edgetech has embarked on an intensive period of new product development, which has already yielded results with many exciting new product innovations in the pipeline.

Initially, in addition to running Edgetech’s British operations from the company’s Coventry base, he also oversaw its business in the Asia Pacific region.

More recently, he’s assumed leadership of Edgetech’s European arm, based in Heinsberg, Germany.

“I’m very proud of what we’ve managed to achieve over the last five years,” Chris comments.

“I was fortunate to have an excellent foundation to build on, and assisted by dozens of dedicated and passionate employees, we’ve been able to continue Edgetech’s long legacy at the forefront of IGU innovation.

“The last year in particular has demonstrated the resilience and adaptability of the Edgetech workforce, and thanks both to them and incredibly supportive Edgetech customers around the country, we’ve managed to come through a very challenging year with an excellent performance.

“Going forward, we’ll be continuing to push the boundaries of warm-edge spacer technology, help our customers improve their efficiency and productivity, and raise the profile of the fantastic (and sometimes sadly undervalued) work of the British IG sector.”

Continually investing in products, people and customer support

One of Chris’s top priorities as Managing Director has been continual investment not just in products, but also people and customer support.

So, in addition to celebrating his five-year milestone, Edgetech have also welcomed two outstanding new recruits in 2021.

Lucie Bannister has strengthened the company’s Customer Services Department as a Business Administration Apprentice.

Meanwhile, Paula Considine has joined as Customer Services Manager in Edgetech’s fast-growing Customer Fulfilment Team. Paula’s wealth of customer service experience will prove invaluable as the company continues to improve upon its successful ‘customers at the centre’ initiative.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming Lucie and Paula, and we look forward to benefitting from their skills and experience in the years ahead”, Chris comments. “If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that a resilient business is built on the back of talented, dedicated and adaptable people.”
