Rehau fabricator, Polyframe, has been nominated for The Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards 2014.
,Polyframe has been selected from all businesses in Yorkshire as one of just three finalists in the ‘Companies between £10m and £50m’ category, recognising its phenomenal growth over recent years. The newspaper’s awards are designed to highlight the strength of the region’s business community and, as the organisers say, ‘show that the spirit of enterprise is alive and well in God’s Own Country’.
,One of the key factors behind Polyframe’s nomination this year, is said to be the recent opening of its fifth factory in Halifax, which will create around 300 jobs in the Yorkshire town. It has also been recognised for the success of both its dedicated composite door factory, which opened in Mansfield in 2013, and its Northern Ireland factory in Portadown, which is successfully targeting the trade markets across Ireland and Scotland.
,Martin Hitchin, Rehau’s UK chief executive, said: “Polyframe’s success has been very impressive to witness, and we have been delighted to be able to play our part in that with the supply of top quality Rehau profiles and with sales and technical support.
,”Polyframe has hugely out-performed the market over the past four years and has shown that a growth mindset and a real focus on innovation will always attract new customers. What is particularly pleasing is that Polyframe has been able to maintain its commitment to quality and customer service throughout its expansion and has continued to invest across its operation in order to stay ahead.”
,The winners of the prestigious Yorkshire Post awards will be announced at a ceremony to be held in Leeds on October 30.
,Polyframe was also recently named by Santander and Smarter as one of the top 50 fastest growing businesses in the UK.
