Treforest Glass were proud to be on the VIP list of Edgetech customers invited to Celebrate their 10 year Anniversary. Edgetech`s warmedge acoustic spacer has helped Treforest Glass develop innovative units incorporating their versatile range of products, including heritage warmedge super spacer in white and black. 

Warm edge experts Edgetech welcomed their VIPs from throughout the industry to a celebration marking a decade of UK manufacturing.

The companies Coventry factory became the first warm edge manufacturing facility in the country back in 2007. Exactly 10 years on, dignitaries including Bill Griffith and George Wilson from parent company Quanex and John Blundell, Deputy Mayor of Coventry marked the anniversary by officially opening a $1.3m extension to the same site.

Attendees heard presentations from Edgetech UK Managing Director - Chris Alderson, President of Quanex IG Systems - George Wilson (who has since been promotes to COO of the Quanex Group), Quanex Chairman and CEO - Bill Griffith, as well as industry expert Andrew Scott, Managing Director of Insight Data. Guest were treated to a virtual tour of the new facilities.

"We were absolutely delighted to welcome so many colleges, customers, members of the media and others to our HQ to celebrate such a major milestone and unveil our new facilities," comments Chris Alderson, Edgetech UK Managing Director. "This event has given us a fantastic opportunity to reflect on everything we have accomplished over the last decade, and to say thank you to our customers, many of whom have been with us since day one."

"It also gave us the chance to share our vision for the next decade and beyond - and demonstrate both our strong relationship with Quanex, and our unwavering commitment to product research and development."

The Quanex Chairman's Safety Award was presented to Works Manager John Stark to recognise Edgetech UK`s impeccable safety record, while Head of Marketing - Charlotte Davies received a £1,000 donation from her company towards her efforts Paddle2Pedal, the all-female event from GM Fundraising that will see 12 fenestration professionals canoe, abseil, and cycle hundreds of miles in August to raise money for the Hope House Children s Hospice.

Attendees made generous charity donations also totaling £1,000 and - reflecting the international guest-list- a further £500 in dollars and euros which brings Charlotte's fundraising total so far to over £4.000.

The event culminated with a fun-filled medieval banquet, and Edgetech`s annual golf event the following day.

A video of the event is currently in production, and will be published on Edgetech`s website.
