Leading companies championed

Winners of the annual Origin Awards, a national initiative that champions businesses in the glass and glazing industry, have been announced.

Hosted by Origin, the awards celebrate window and door companies that have shown impressive success and growth over the last 12 months.

The awards include 14 categories, each one recognising different aspects of business that help deliver growth. In addition to the Best Regional Partners, categories based on marketing abilities were also included, with awards given for Best Social Media, Best Website, Best Customer Case Study and Best Showroom. For the first time in Origin Award history, the category for the ‘Best International Partner’ was also up for grabs.

A Special Recognition Award was also given to Peter Lippett, founding director of Bristol Bifolds, for his outstanding contribution to the fenestration industry and his voluntary charity work for The Brain Trust at Southmead Hospital in Bristol.

Neil Ginger, CEO at Origin, said: “Origin has experienced significant growth over the last 15 years, which we owe in part to the fantastic work carried out by our partners. The Origin Awards are our opportunity to say thank you to the valuable teams in showrooms up and down the country, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards of service that we’re known for. Congratulations to all those who were nominated, and of course our finalists. We wish all our partners a successful year ahead.”
