Edgetech UK, a Quanex company, becomes the first glazing components manufacturer to become CORGI Fenestration registered. The company now has access to the most recognised consumer mark in the glazing industry – CORGI.
Edgetech also becomes the first company to achieve CORGI Fenestration registered status since the FIT Show. Chris Mayne, CEO of CORGI Fenestration commented: “We were overwhelmed by the level of interest at FIT, and my colleagues and myself now have literally hundreds of leads to follow up – system houses, fabricators, manufacturers and installers.”
Mayne added: “We are delighted to welcome Edgetech into the CORGI Fenestration family. The company’s ethos reflects our own – trust, reliability, expertise and quality.
We look forward to working with them over the long haul and to helping them realise the outstanding benefits associated with the CORGI Fenestration name”.
Chris Alderson, Edgetech UK Managing Director, commented: “We were intrigued when we heard about the new CORGI Fenestration scheme and the more we found out about it the more we could see the value of being involved. Spacer is a small part of a unit, but a crucial one to get right for the end consumer, so it’s definitely a step forward that the CORGI Fenestration scheme is taking into account all contributors in the supply chain. We invest significant time and resource ensuring that we deliver consistently reliable product, but we take our responsibility further with our unique customer training and quality programme to ensure that glass units incorporating Super Spacer can also be trusted throughout the supply chain. Our CORGI seal of approval gives us and our customers the assurance that our product and business processes are first-class and we’ll be wearing that badge of honour with pride.”
CORGI Fenestration covers the whole supply chain from system houses, fabricators, component and IGU manufacturers through to installers and repair and maintenance services. Companies and individuals registered with CORGI Fenestration and recognised for their trust, reliability, expertise and quality can shout about this best practice by displaying the most recognised mark in the home improvements sector.
Products covered are: windows, roof windows, roof lights, doors, roof lanterns, conservatories, orangeries, glass extensions, sun rooms, tiled roof glass extensions, replacement conservatory roofs, porches, shop fronts, curtain walls, facias, bargeboards, cladding, soffits, guttering and downpipes.
CORGI Fenestration also covers the best in qualifications. It accepts all glazing sector NVQs awarded by partner organisation GQA Qualifications and all in-house training recognised by them. Staff with these qualifications can now be issued with their personal CORGI Fenestration branded card and will be listed on a Skills Register.
Founded in 1989, and today forming part of global building products group Quanex, Edgetech revolutionised the industry with the introduction of the game-changing Super Spacer flexible warm edge spacer bar. Currently celebrating a decade of manufacturing at its Coventry headquarters, the company offers a comprehensive range of components for insulated glass manufacture.
