This year’s annual National Fenestration Awards announcement brought a smile to the team at Liniar this past November, as they discovered they’d won two of the coveted awards.
With everyone keeping a keen eye on their Twitter feeds, the Liniar team was delighted to see Alumina and Liniar pop up as winners in two categories of awards: Aluminium System of the Year and more meaningfully, the COVID Heroes Award. The latter was shared with industry Morley Glass and Masterframe, both of whom also invested in helping others throughout the pandemic.
Liniar’s Group Sales Director Nigel Bishop comments on what these awards mean to the Liniar team:
“We’re always delighted to win awards, and good news helps to inject positivity into our teams – which, this year, has been more important than ever.
“The Alumina door was launched in 2017 as the first aluminium bi-fold to be foiled or powder coated, and we’ve continued to develop it ever since. The flexible bead means no wedge gaskets and an extremely fast fitting time, and the feedback we get from installers has now been translated into the NFA win, which is extremely gratifying. There are some more exciting Alumina developments coming in 2021, so watch this space!
“While both awards mean a lot to us, the one that really got the team cheering was the new COVID Heroes awards. We’ve always been active members in our local community, but the ongoing pandemic has helped to highlight the vital role that both Liniar and our sister company Avantek Machinery play in supporting the families, charities and businesses around us.
“It’s humbling to be recognised for the work we put into the PPE project we’ve been running since April to manufacture protective visors. When the project began, everyone throughout the business wanted to be a part of making a difference in the lives of healthcare and frontline workers and their families, by providing critical PPE items when they needed them most.
“We’d like to thank everyone that voted for us in this year’s National Fenestration Awards and offer congratulations to the rest of the winners!” concludes Nigel.
