Spectus Windows, the producer of high-quality extrusion products for the manufacture of PVC-u window and door systems, is celebrating after its long-standing customer, Lancashire Trade Frames, won Fabricator of the Year at G09, and extends its congratulations to the company. Lancashire Trade Frames’ offers the complete matching suite of the Spectus Elite 70 system, which exceeds current UK building regulations. Spectus’ Elite 70 is a unique five-chamber PVC-u system that merges simplicity in design and fitting with unrivalled style and thermal efficiency, available in both Ovolo and Bevelled designs. Having been shortlisted for the accolade three years in a row, Lancashire Trade Frames emerged victorious from this year’s awards ceremony, which took place at the Wembley stadium in October. Lancashire Trade Frames’ win comes after the company’s commitment to continued investment in a difficult market, mirroring Spectus’ own business approach as the economic downturn persists. As well as investing upwards of £1.5m in recent years, including over £390,000 on cutting-edge technology to make production as efficient as possible, Lancashire Trade Frames has doubled its production capacity, appointed a new production manager as part of its growth strategy, and can now produce up to 2,000 quality frames per week. Speaking about the win, Lancashire Trade Frames managing director, Mark Rowland, said: "Winning Fabricator of the Year shows that our decision to carry on investing and retain momentum has definitely been the right one. Our core objective of providing a secure business partnership and competitive prices for our customers still stands, and has been made possible by the unwavering support we have received from Spectus.” Spectus’ Adrian Ah-Chin-Kow continues: “Spectus and Lancashire Trade Frames share the same dynamic approach to doing business, and both companies are reaping the rewards of their proactivity by remaining successful in a market where some of our peers are struggling. Spectus, for example, has had a particularly strong start to the second half of 2009, with higher than forecasted client growth and major contract wins. “Like Lancashire Trade Frames, through seeking to improve the customer experience further, we have increased efficiency throughout the business without compromising our unrivalled quality and can therefore deliver a world-class service for our partners.” To find out more about Spectus Window Systems, visit www.spectus.co.uk or call 01625 420400.
