Much cause for celebration as Thistle wins prestigious industry award:

For the team at Thistle Windows & Conservatories, 2015 has been a year of great achievements and celebration.  In addition to the company marking it’s 20th Anniversary, the Aberdeen-based firm was awarded the prestigious UK Conservatory Installer of The Year Award at the G15 Awards for the UK Glass and Glazing Industry, which was held in London on Friday 27th November, 2015.


The G-Awards, established in 2003, is one of the most important dates of the year for the glass and glazing industry with companies from across the UK competing to be recognised as the best of the best.  The G15 Awards are open to each and every company across the entire UK Glass and Glazing Industry including installers, fabricators, manufacturers and suppliers of all specialities, including domestic, commercial and trade.  To be considered for the awards a company must produce an entry submission which demonstrates that they are of the highest calibre, a comprehensive report showcasing their achievements, demonstrating their commitment to their customers and highlighting how they stand out against their competitors.

If a company impresses the G-Awards judging panel with their entry, they are shortlisted as a finalist and are then subject to a visit from an industry expert Judge who carries out a comprehensive on-site audit and inspection – including the viewing of both in-progress and completed projects and in-depth interviews with customers. While the award is titled “Conservatory Installer of The Year” the judge considers all home extension installations which incorporate a significantly glazed component, including Conservatories, Orangeries and Sunrooms.

The G15 Awards were one of the biggest yet, with over 500 attendees from across the entire spectrum of the glass and glazing industry descending on the London Hilton on Park Lane.  Guests were treated to a brilliant evening of celebration and entertainment, with popular comedian Jason Manford on hand to ensure that an amazing time was had by all.  Managing Director Ian Bruce, Sales Manager Hugh Bain and Marketing Manager Michael Queen along with their partners Allison, Diane and Kirsty were in attendance to represent Thistle Windows and were absolutely ecstatic when the company was announced as the category winner.
