Award finalist

Liniar has been shortlisted for the Positive Social Impact award at the 2020 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.

Previous winners include Joe Wicks, DPD UK and Hotel Chocolat.

Liniar’s entry focused on its ongoing community focus, including efforts to help the nation’s key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic by producing and supplying protective visors. This continues alongside its normal operations of producing thermally efficient and low maintenance PVCU products for the construction industry.

Group managing director Martin Thurley said: “We’re delighted to be recognised for our achievements at a national level for the work carried out by our teams to help address the nation’s PPE shortage. Our culture is very community focused and we like to help wherever we can, so it was fantastic to be able to contribute to keeping people safe. To be shortlisted at the National Business Awards is the icing on the cake.”

The next stage involves a judging panel, which will be carried out virtually by video conference in September, and winners will be announced at a dinner in November. Liniar is up against stiff competition in this category, including Mindful Chef and Octavia House Schools.
