JFP named Manufacturer of the Year

John Fredericks (JFP) has won Manufacturer of the Year at Insider’s 2024 Made in Yorkshire Awards.

Held at New Dock Hall at Royal Armouries in Leeds, and compèred by television presenter, journalist and newsreader Sameena Ali-Khan, the event celebrated the world-class companies in Yorkshire and the Humber, along with the products they are making and selling across the world.

JFP, the Huddersfield-based window and door manufacturer, is said to have received praise from the judges for its commitment to ongoing investment in its people and facilities, leading to significant growth.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have been named Manufacturer of the Year,” said Mark Dicconson, managing director of John Fredericks. “This is a true testament to the whole JFP team, along with continued loyalty and support from all our customers. It’s that combination that makes us the success we are today.

“We are very proud of this achievement. As a company, we’ve been trading continuously for more than 53 years and throughout that time we’ve constantly strived to provide our customers with the very best products and exceptional service.

“With plans for continued investment in machinery and our people in the pipeline, we’ve got more exciting times ahead. Watch this space!”

This latest recognition comes after being named SME of the Year at the annual Business for Calderdale Awards in October last year.
