Total Glass employees wearing their many hats
As the old saying goes, ‘if you want to get ahead, get a hat’, and Total Glass employees certainly embraced the opportunity to celebrate success with an informal presentation photograph after scooping the Green Award in the Knowsley Business & Regeneration Awards 2012.
Total Glass Quality Manager Mike Hurst, pictured bottom right, posed with nine supervisory colleagues all sporting spectacular headgear after he accepted the trophy recognising the company’s on-going commitment to the green agenda.
Judges selected the Liverpool-based aluminium and PVC-U window and door manufacturer for its investment in new machinery and re-examination of all aspects of manufacturing processes that has reduced material, fuel and energy waste, resulting in the environmental management ISO14001 accreditation. This has been supplemented by staff training with a dozen staff reaching NVQ Level 2 qualifications in Environmental Principles and Recycling.
The judging panel commented: “With an ongoing commitment to the green agenda this has not been done to the detriment of the company’s performance with turnover for the 12 months up to January 2012 rising by 50%. Total Glass has also increased its manufacturing workforce.”
Mike added: “It was an honour to receive this award in recognition of our success in reducing the environmental impact of our operations and recycling as much of waste materials where possible. In supplying such a wide range of quality fenestration and door products to the trade and social housing sectors, you could say we wear many different hats at Total Glass!”
