Double win for Secured by Design member company Frame Fast UK at Local Business Awards
Secured by Design (SBD) member company Frame Fast UK, Derby’s largest trade fabricator, scored a double win at the East Midlands Chamber Derbyshire Business Awards 2018.
As well as being crowned Manufacturer of the Year for a second year in a row, Frame Fast picked up the Entrepreneur of the Year award for founder and director, Paul Brighouse.
“We are so pleased with our double win at the awards this year,” says Nigel Leivers, Director at Frame Fast. “It’s a real testament to the whole team to win the Manufacturer of the Year award twice, and we couldn’t be happier for Paul with his award win. It’s a well-deserved celebration of all his achievements over the past 25 years.”
Based on Ascot Drive, Frame Fast UK is not only the leading fabricator of PVCu and aluminium windows and doors, but also renowned for its glass production at its local manufacturing facility. Its Eurocell Logik / Modus PVC-U Window Range have obtained the coveted Police Preferred Specification accreditation.
Nigel continued: “Derby is the UK’s centre for manufacturing, and it was the world-class manufacturers Rolls-Royce who judged the Manufacturer of the Year award, making the win even better.”
“2018 has been Frame Fast’s busiest year yet, with investments in factory space and machinery bringing huge growth in all aspects of the business, and the double award win is the perfect reward for the team’s hard work and dedication.”
The glittering ceremony for the East Midlands Chamber Derbyshire Business Awards celebrate the stand-out businesses across the region.
Nigel adds: “Winning the award is great for customers who need a big choice of PVCu, aluminium and glass products, with fast turnaround times. We would like to say a big thank you to the whole Frame Fast team for all your hard work in 2018 – here’s to another award winning year!”
