Sternfenster wins at G Awards

Sternfenster won the Training Development Initiative of the Year award at the G23 Awards on Friday November 24, for the second time in two years.

At a packed ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in London, where 800 guests gathered to celebrate the very best the glass and glazing industry has to offer, Sternfenster won the Training Development Initiative of the Year award thanks to its ongoing investment into the professional development of all employees at the Lincoln-based trade fabricator.

“This award is a significant win for everyone within the company,” said managing director Mike Parczuk. “As a business, we invest in product development, machinery, IT and distribution, and all of those are key for the development of our business. But nothing is more important than the genuine investment in the people who actually run the business, without whom there would be no Sternfenster.

“So, as cliched as this sounds, this award is genuinely thanks to everyone who works at Sternfenster, and I would like to congratulate each and every one of them.”

In October 2022, shortly after winning the same award the G22 Awards, Sternfenster achieved IIP Gold, something only 23% of assessed businesses globally can claim. The company has now embarked on its ‘Pursuit for Platinum’, which – if achieved – will put it in the top 3% of all IIP-assessed companies.

“Making tomorrow better than today is a fundamental value at Sternfenster, and one that underpins training and development within the company,” Mike said. “It helped us achieve IIP Gold, and will support us on the IIP Platinum journey, which is our next milestone in 2025.”
