Korniche owner Made For Trade has been recognised for business achievements in the North East with regional North East Business Awards for Manufacturing and High Growth and Ambition, along with a shortlisting for Company of the Year in recognition of recent achievements.
Together with the Durham/Sunderland/South Tyneside heat and Northumberland/Tyneside heat, MFT’s awards from the Teesside heat go on to contest overall titles at The Grand Final at Hardwick Hall, Sedgefield, at the end of September.
Operations Director Chris Wann, who picked up the awards at the Teesside heat event at Middlesbrough College, later said: “It was an incredible evening; this is the first time that Made for Trade have entered regional awards, and to be recognised and achieve two awards that reflect where we are as a business today was better that we could have imagined.
“It was incredibly humbling to be part of an awards ceremony that represents the local and regional talent and high quality of the businesses we have here in the North East.”
Following the introduction of the Korniche roof lantern, the company has expanded the same engineering-led ethos with the bi-folding door system; making for a busy year for the Wynyard-based business, alongside a re-brand, new ISO9001 certification and the opening of an in-house showroom.
In other awards programmes, Made For Trade was up for nine award nominations at the National Fenestration Awards alongside entries to the G-Awards, and will now be hoping to add awards from September’s Grand Final to the list.
