Double award win
AluFoldDirect has been named Manufacturing Business and Medium Business of the year at Lancashire Business View’s Red Rose Business Awards.
The team picked up two gongs at a ceremony at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, where more than 1,100 guests gathered to celebrate business excellence in Lancashire.
Craig Miller, managing director at AluFoldDirect, said: “We are so chuffed to have won two awards and it was great to have so many of the team with us on the night accept them. In our three years, we have grown the business from a standing start to become the successful fabricator we are today.
“This double win is a credit to the whole AluFoldDirect team. Their hard work and dedication to delivering the best product and the best service on time, every time is what allows installers to rely on us as their trusted aluminium glazing supply partner.”
The Red Rose Awards judges said: “AluFoldDirect demonstrated excellence across the cornerstones of all businesses with its innovative approach to sales and marketing; its success in creating employment for local people and ensuring they have in place a structured training programme that adequately met the needs of the business.
“The pride the company had in its staff was clear to see. It was evident how the company’s operations were run with ‘military’ precision, adopting a straightforward company philosophy of ‘That’ll do – won’t do’. An outstanding company who truly deserve being recognised as Lancashire’s stand-out medium-sized business.”
The awards evening also raised £9,000 for Cash for Kids, the Red Rose Awards 2018 charity partner.
