In recent years the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) says it has been working ‘particularly hard’ to further improve its offering to members.

It has established industry recycling schemes, invested in research to help lobby government on the inclusion of windows and doors in the ECO+ scheme, set up industry training programmes, and introduced pulse testing to prove compliance to the much-debated Approved Document F legislation.

Now, for the first time since it was established in 1977, the federation is ready to launch a new subscription model that fits with these upgraded membership benefits.

Ben Wallace, head of membership & customer relations at the GGF, commented: “I think it’s fair to say that the GGF is not the same organisation it was over 40 years ago! In fact, the team has been working tirelessly to update our services and ensure we have a truly useful and relevant offering for members operating in today’s market.

“We identified, however, that a new subscription model was needed to better reflect these changes and consulted heavily with members to ensure any amendments that would be made, would be made with their valuable insight. Our goal was straightforward: to eliminate present inconsistencies, create a clear, inclusive, and easy-to-understand subscription structure, and enhance our ability to grow our member base and the benefits they receive.

“We are aware that the changes we are making to the subscription model will mean an increase for some members, but as we have held our prices firm throughout the modernisation of the GGF to date, the update is now a necessity,” he continued. “There are also discounts available to those who submit their turnovers early and make prompt payments.”

John Agnew, group managing director at the GGF added: “We cannot stress enough how grateful we are to all our members for their ongoing support over the years.

“This revised subscription model to the ‘new look’ GGF and all its additional services, is a testament to our commitment to ensuring no member feels unsupported, and to enriching member benefits and forging industry partnerships. We want to solidify the work we have done to date, while strategically building a strong future for the GGF and our valued members.”
