2024 marks Sternfenster’s 50th year in business, and the Lincoln-based fabricator is planning a host of celebrations throughout the year to mark the occasion.

“We are going to be celebrating this anniversary in style,” said Mike Parczuk, Sternfenster’s managing director. “We want to encourage our customers, colleagues and the wider industry to share in this achievement with us, so we are going to be posting lots of fun content on our social media, as well as exclusive deals and offers.

“From our top 50 milestones from the last half-century, to 50 innovations that we feel have changed the glass and glazing industry, alongside a whole host of offers for our customers to win, it’s going to be a year to remember!”

The anniversary is a chance for Lincoln-based trade fabricator Sternfenster to reflect on its own innovations, such as its StyleLine range of windows, manufactured using the UK’s first Graf-welder, which produces seamless joints, and its host of awards and accolades – recently topped off by the G23 Award for Training and Development Initiative of the Year.

The company achieved a Gold Investors in People award in October 2022, which underpins the value Sternfenster places in its staff, and the contribution they make to the success of the business. The trade fabricator also invests in its customer service initiative, such as its EasyAdmin software, which was developed to put more control in customers’ hands.

EasyAdmin allows businesses to produce professional quotes very quickly for homeowners. It also allows window installation companies to have complete oversight of their profit and loss. This information is updated daily and allows business owners to see the health of their accounts in real time.

“Looking back over the past 50 years, I feel an immense sense of pride at how much the business has accomplished,” Mike said.

“We have gone from a small, aluminium window installer, to a national fabricator with both an installation and trade counter division, without losing focus on our key philosophies of exceptional service and quality.

“The next 50 years for us will be about continuing to expand on those philosophies, by innovating even more products and solutions for our customers, and continuing to be a reliable, secure fabricator that the industry can rely upon.”
