Commitment to innovation sees hardware firm shortlisted for major award

Caldwell G16 Finalists

Global hardware manufacturer Caldwell UK Ltd is up for ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ at the G Awards in November.

The Coventry based business based its application around its commitment to innovation in the last twelve months; and how it has grabbed smart technology and home automation by the scruff of the neck and pioneered its implementation in the UK.

The G Awards take place on November 18th at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

Caldwell were recently visited by veteran MP Jim Cunningham who was keen to see the work the company is carrying out around the integration of smart technology in windows and doors; and helping to bring motorised products to market.

Tim Ferkin, Sales & Marketing Manager at Caldwell UK Ltd, comments: “In business it can be a lonely place sometimes, so it is nice for the whole team here to be recognised for the work we’re doing. We have manufacturing capabilities that are second to none and continue to push boundaries in technology and what is possible. Let’s hope we’re winners on the night.”

Providing the next generation of window and door hardware

David Walker, who became managing director of Caldwell UK earlier in the year, comments: “Caldwell is innovating the next generation of hardware and we’ve launched seven new products alone this year. Awards like these validate our ideas and thinking and recognise the team’s hard work.”
