Glazerite wins county Business of the Year award
The Glazerite UK Group Ltd has been crowned Business of the Year at the annual Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards. The trade fabricator is headquartered in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, where just over half of the company’s employees are based.
Founded in the year 2000 by CEO Jason Thompson and Chairman John Hewitt, Glazerite has gone from strength to strength to become one of the UK’s leading fabricators, offering a comprehensive portfolio of products and services to a number of UK-wide installers.
Jason says: “We’re delighted to have won this award in recognition of the role we play as a key employer here in Northamptonshire. It’s also important to us as a business that we give something back to the community so we’re proud to support and sponsor a number of local sports teams and charities.”
The Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards ceremony was held virtually for the first time ever, as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. It didn’t dampen the celebrations for attendees, however, with Michelle Wright, Glazerite’s Group Marketing Manager, adding: “The organisers did a great job in delivering the awards virtually. It’s not an easy thing to pull off and they managed it perfectly. It was a really enjoyable evening!
“Glazerite is delighted to have been awarded Business of the Year and despite the current climate, demand in our industry is stronger than ever. We’ve just unveiled some exciting investment plans and look forward to sharing the success of our business and the great people behind it at the next NBEA ceremony.”
