From: Sam Nuckey, MD, Window Ware

Sam was among speakers debating the issues facing the industry at the 2021 Glazing Summit. Here she gives her view on taking part.

In our industry, we build relationships as a natural part of doing business together, so being able to share experiences, ideas and concerns surrounding supply issues with industry peers at the Glazing Summit really helps to feed into those closer working connections and is hugely beneficial.

For Window Ware, the last year and a half has been all about assimilating the information available to us and making quick decisions, and I don’t think that’s going to change in the short term. 

Even if the challenges we face in the future are different, the unrelenting pace of change will most likely stay the same. So, as before, we just need to keep our eyes open and use everything we know to continue to make informed decisions that will allow us to exploit opportunities and minimise disruptions. 

The panel was useful in terms of reinforcing the message that it’ll just be more of the same going forward.

It was the third time we have supported the event, and it was the biggest and best one since the Summit’s inception in 2018.

The Glazing Summit is a fantastic opportunity to bring business leaders and industry experts together to discuss the current issues. 

There’s a lot of knowledge in the room and we definitely come away with information that helps support our decision making and the plans that we’re implementing as a business, so it’s always a key event in our diary.
