We Won! Network VEKA Awards

Penrith based NLG Window Systems started with just two members of staff 15
years ago but has gone from strength to strength, winning a national business trophy at an illustrious
industry awards evening.
The annual Network VEKA prize ceremony recognises excellence in the door, window and
conservatory industry. To become a member of Network VEKA, companies must first go through a
strict application process before agreeing to routine audits and follow-ups to make sure that all
products and services are up to the extremely high standards that the Network has come to expect
since it was established in 1996. An extremely important part of this process is to make sure every customer completes a satisfaction
survey at the end of every installation. After this, the customer will receive the 10-year guarantee
that comes with every product from a Network VEKA member and the member receives a score out
of 100. This year, an amazing 20,000 questionnaires were completed and collected, then shortlisted
into categories according to company size.
As this is North Lakes’ first year as a Network VEKA member, it was entered into the Best New
Member division before being announced joint winners with D&I Window Solutions, from
Barnsley, at the prestigious event held at Warwick’s Chesford Grange Hotel.
Head of Partner Programmes for VEKA, Karen Lund presented the award from Network VEKA to
North Lakes and said: “Best New Member is such a special award because it announces to everyone
that you’re here and you’ve got the Network VEKA message spot on. North Lakes has done
exceptionally well in the past 15 years, growing from just two people into a company of over 15
members of staff and three installation teams. The Best New Member award isn’t split up into
company size either so you are up against everyone else that has joined the Network since the last
presentation. The team have done a fantastic job taking home the trophy, congratulations and we
hope to see you on stage at many more Network VEKA Members’ Weekends.”
Also at the awards evening was Brand Ambassador for Network VEKA Steve Davis OBE, he said:
“Congratulations to North Lakes for winning its first ever Network VEKA award and well done to
all the other newcomers this year. Keep up the good work!”
