Tradeglaze Goes for Gold with Awards Nominations and Growth Investment

Leading double glazing manufacturing firm Tradeglaze is going for gold at the LincolnshireLive Business Awards after announcing investment in new machinery for continued growth. Tradeglaze is delighted to share that it has been selected as a Finalist in two categories in this year’s LincolnshireLive Business Awards.


Hosted by LincolnshireLive in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, the awards return for the 18th year this year to bring together thriving businesses, celebrating achievements of the business community as well as individual talent in our beautiful county of Lincolnshire. Tradeglaze has been shortlisted in two categories, SME Business of the Year and Employee of the Year.

Tradeglaze, with its retail subsidiary Jackson Windows, has accelerated the company’s expansion plans in the last year to support rapidly increasing demand for its products.

It has focused on customer experience more than ever before and has invested heavily in new talent, training, machinery, software, vehicles and office space to ensure it continues delivering the exceptional quality products and five star customer service the company has become known and recommended for.

Jeremy Wetherall, Managing Director at Tradeglaze said: “To be shortlisted in the LincolnshireLive Business Awards means a lot to us.

“The last 12 months have been the most challenging time in the history of our company but we are stronger and more resilient than ever before. Our teams are experts in their area, from our consultants, surveyors, fabricators, installers, to our office teams and our remedial engineers. 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.”

We enjoy seeing Lincolnshire thrive; we are a keen Team Lincolnshire ambassador as well as a proud member of the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce

We continue to build our relationships through the LCC Construction and Property Network and have already signed up to participate in their flagship East Midlands: Build for the Future 2023 exhibition which focuses on sustainability in the construction industry.

“We have also just committed to another year’s collaboration with the University of Lincoln’s International Business School to join forces with their business and marketing students on consultancy projects.

We love working with young talent and seeing young people choosing fenestration as their career.

Occasions like the LincolnshireLive Business Awards give us the opportunity to get people talking about the modern, highly professional glazing and fenestration industry and the exciting career opportunities it holds.

Tradeglaze Marketing Manager Katerina Pickup has been selected a Finalist in the Employee of the Year category.

Jeremy said: “Katerina joined our company in early 2020 and while facing unpredictable, fast-changing market conditions, she leveraged new opportunities and 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.”

“Katerina puts a commendable effort in professional development and has been recently elected Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing. I am delighted to have her on our management team and excited for the many new projects ahead of us as Tradeglaze continues to grow.”

Tradeglaze has also this month taken delivery of a new spacer bar computer saw from Atlantic Machinery at the company’s glass factory Allenby Glass. The machine is an efficient saw for cutting long spacer bars which are used between insulated glass units.

The investment is part of a long-term growth plan which we accelerated last year following an unprecedented demand in the construction and the home improvement markets.

It has been making investments in talent, machinery, software as well as vehicles and office space in the recent months and have more equipment arriving in the months ahead, with the team taking delivery of a new TT405 double-mitre saw from Haffner Murat at the end of October. Tradeglaze has also committed to a new CNC machine for its aluminium factory which will arrive in Q4.

Jeremy said: “Despite varied market conditions and rising energy costs, we are excited to continue our ambitious plans to grow our manufacturing capability. Our new spacer bar computer saw will help increase productivity and accuracy and will further reduce lead times for our customers.

With energy bills on the rise, there hasn’t been a better time to invest in quality double glazing. We offer market-leading products which will make a real difference to heating bills in the long term.

“Our company has been making significant investments across all departments in the recent months. Demand has now returned to pre-pandemic levels but we continue boosting our capacity across all three factories.”
