Investment and Excellence Earn Local Double Glazing Expert Tradeglaze Two Prestigious Business Awards

Lincoln-based fabricator and installer of bespoke PVCu and aluminium double glazing products Tradeglaze are pleased to share that the company has won two awards at the 2022 LincolnshireLive Business Awards, in recognition of the manufacturer’s growth and investment in their people, their customer service and in machinery.

The LincolnshireLive Business Awards are hosted annually in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce. They bring together organisations from around the Lincolnshire county every year and celebrate key players with vision, innovation and support for the county’s development. The prestigious black-tie dinner welcomed almost 300 guests on 20th October to celebrate business and individual achievements, with judges giving out awards in 11 categories. Tradeglaze earned the ‘SME Business of the Year’ award and the ‘Employee of the Year’ award for the company’s marketing manager Katerina Pickup.

Tradeglaze, with its retail company Jackson Windows, have accelerated expansion plans in the last year to support the rapidly increasing demand for their double glazing products. While the past year has been full of challenges, from material price increases, energy price hikes and labour shortages, the team at Tradeglaze have put relentless effort in innovation.

Jeremy Wetherall, Tradeglaze managing director said: “We are beyond proud to have earned the two LincolnshireLive awards and delighted that the hard work of the team and our persistent commitment to high standards and exceptional customer care has been recognised.”

“We work on complex projects which require high levels of expertise and our teams are specialists in their areas, from our consultants, surveyors, fabricators, installers, to our office teams and our remedial engineers. If you take a look at the stunning products we manufacture and install, with no two frames being the same, this is amazing. The two accolades are a much welcomed recognition during testing times for our company and the industry overall.”

“We enjoy seeing our Lincolnshire county thrive, and are a keen Team Lincolnshire Ambassador as well as a proud member of the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce. We also work with the next generation and have just committed to another year’s collaboration with students at the University of Lincoln’s International Business School.”

Tradeglaze marketing manager Katerina Pickup has earned the Employee of the Year award. Jeremy Wetherall said: “Katerina has been with us for three years now and has been instrumental in getting our name out there. While facing unpredictable fast-changing market conditions, she has leveraged new opportunities and has helped navigate the business to growth. She is an inspirational leader who knows how to lift others to success, and an admirable ambassador for the modern, professional double glazing industry. I am delighted to have her on our management team and excited for the many new projects ahead of us.”

Jeremy Wetherall concluded: “We are making additional investments in HR and have designed bespoke training and development programs to ensure every member of our team has the knowledge and support to perform their role and to grow professionally. We are all passionate about exceeding our customers’ expectations and our hard-earned outstanding customer reviews are a testament to our efforts. I could not be more proud of our people.”

“Providing high quality products and a reliable service to our customers is absolutely key to us. We have earned a rock-solid reputation in the county. I want to thank to our Tradeglaze and Jackson Windows customers for believing in us, our people and our products. Having put several six figure investments in the business this year, we are positive about the future. We are incredibly thankful to all our teams; every single employee has contributed to our success and has helped us show that together we can do things we had never thought we could achieve.”

Congratulations to all winners and all finalists!
