Window firm out to be a glass act at awards
Nomination caps a good year for company after move and expansion
The Window Film Company, based in Asheridge Road, has been shortlisted for Thames Valley Business Magazine’s SME of the Year award, which is judged on criteria including current business performance, growth over the past two years, innovation and contribution the industry.
The company, which was founded by Micky Calcott in 1998, now has additional premises in London, but has always had a presence in Buckinghamshire and employs 28 full time staff.
Mr Calcott said the nomination has come after another successful year.
He said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have made the shortlist. We were visited by a judging panel as part of the process and in explaining to them some of the achievements we’ve managed this year it occurred to me just how busy we’ve been!
“The year started with a move to bigger premises. Whilst the distance we moved wasn’t far, Higham Mead to Asheridge Road, the two properties are poles apart.
“We’re now in a fully refurbished two-storey headquarters, with an entire floor dedicated to our print and graphics department. The move has allowed us to invest in new equipment – we purchased a new wide format printer in February, and the increased space has meant we’ve been able to add valuable new members of staff across departments.
“To top it all off our client base has continued to grow and we’ve recorded another rise in yearly turnover, so it’s hard not to be pleased with the way things have gone. For all the hard work we’ve put in to be recognised with an award nomination is obviously very pleasing, but whatever the outcome I’m delighted with the way things have gone.”
The winners will be announced at a black-tie dinner at the Madesjski Stadium in Reading tonight
