Made For Trade has been honoured with the King’s Award for Innovation 2024 for its Korniche Roof Lantern.

Established in 1965, The King’s Award for Enterprise is the UK’s most distinguished business commendation. The award continues HM Queen Elizabeth II’s legacy and celebrates businesses that pioneer innovation, sustainable practices, and social mobility.  Receiving the award is a testament to Made For Trade’s commitment to forging revolutionary solutions for industry products.

Managing director Bradley Gaunt, pictured with the lantern, said: “At Made For Trade, innovation is our top priority. Winning this award validates our team’s hard work and dedication. It boosts our reputation and opens up new opportunities for growth and collaboration.

“Thanks to everyone at Made For Trade for their passion and commitment. Together, we’ll keep innovating and achieving success.”

He added: ” Made For Trade’s achievement demonstrates its commitment to excelling and pushing boundaries within the home building industry. Korniche has established Made For Trade as a national operation despite its base in the Northeast of England.

“It has moved from a fabricator of third-party systems to a business that designs, engineers, and builds its own products at scale. The Korniche Roof Lantern has set a new paradigm in design and functionality, raising standards in the industry.

“The Korniche Roof Lantern has really raised the bar for installation ease, thermal efficiency, and sleek design aesthetics, having tackled any previous industry limitations. It has emerged as a true beacon of creative thinking, appealing to a broad market of builders, roofers, and DIY enthusiasts. Due to its effortless installation, trade and end consumers benefit from increased efficiency and reduced costs.

“Furthermore, the ‘KwikQuote’ online tool continues to amplify the customer experience, allowing Made For Trade to expand its operational reach. Trade clients can offer instant pricing, allowing improved sales processes and refined customer satisfaction.”
