Liniar wrapped up an award-winning year with the latest in a long line of prestigious achievements after being named Systems Company of 2014.
The National Fenestration Awards winners were announced on Tuesday, December 9 with Liniar also securing runner up in the PVC Company and Social Networker categories.
These latest accolades follow on from a spate of recent honours that the Derbyshire brand has earned with Liniar’s trading company HL Plastics winning the Growing Business of the Year 2014 for mid-sized companies at the esteemed GBA national business awards in November.
That came hot on the heels of Liniar creator and MD Roger Hartshorn being announced as one of the UK’s most influential individuals in manufacturing in The Manufacturer Top 100 list. A panel of expert judges from within the industry selected the individuals who characterise those important traits that help support and develop UK manufacturing.
The HL team also took home the Derby Telegraph Company of the Year award in June.
The National Fenestration Awards are the industry’s fastest growing independent awards event. Launched in 2013 they aim to reward the very best of the sector and are run and decided completely by the participation of the industry.
There was a massive increase in votes cast this year, with voting up by a staggering 293% on the numbers voting in 2013 – a total of 2,579 votes were cast in 2014.
Roger Hartshorn commented: “2014 has certainly been one of Liniar’s most successful years yet, and this award is particularly meaningful having being voted for by our peers within the industry. It’s great for the team at Liniar to receive public recognition for the hard work they all put in throughout the year!”
Jason Grafton-Holt from the NFAs remarked: “We’re delighted about the high levels of voting this year and feel the industry has really taken the NFAs to its collective heart. Liniar is a well-deserved winner in this category; their amazing FIT Show stand, new product launches and the work they’ve been doing throughout the year have all combined to achieve this result. We’re looking forward to presenting the award at our event in 2015 and starting all over again with new nominations in the New Year.”
The company reached its landmark 40 year birthday in December and will be celebrating in the New Year with staff and customers.
