Machinery experts Haffner Murat was announced as the joint winner of the Machinery Supplier of the Year category of the National Fenestration Awards 2020.
Dave Thomas, MD, said: “We are delighted to win this award, particularly as it’s voted for by our industry peers, so it’s a real vote of confidence. I’d like to thank everyone who voted for Haffner in the awards – it’s been a difficult year for all so thank you for taking the time. Congratulations also goes to our fellow winner, Elumatec.”
The win is particularly meaningful for Haffner Murat because it’s happened in the company’s 30th anniversary year. Dave says: “This hasn’t been the anniversary year we were expecting but this win is a great way to end 2020.”
The National Fenestration Awards recognises all areas of the UK fenestration industry. As Dave says, there is no judging panel. Shortlists are drawn up based on the number of nominations from registered users who can then vote to decide their overall winner.
This year saw the highest number of votes ever – up 2,000 votes on previous years, perhaps reflecting the importance of finding something to celebrate in a tough year for the industry. The winners were announced with a special live video premiere in collaboration with FENEX 2021 – the fenestration industry’s virtual trade show.
