Starglaze Windows and Conservatories – Sternfenster’s retail company – won the Family Business of the Year Award at this year’s LincolnshireLive Business Awards in October, underlining our commitment to continued ongoing investment in people, machinery, and product development, which will help provide a solid foundation for future success.
“We’ve had a very busy year this last year, improving productivity, customer service and career opportunities for our colleagues,” managing director Mike Parczuk said. “Winning this award is a testament to all the hard work everyone at Starglaze has put into achieving the high standards we have set ourselves.
“To everyone working at our busy site in Lincoln – and to all our customers – I would like to say thank you and remind them that awards like these prove that together we can achieve great things.”
Our recent investments include a new virtual showroom, which gives it greater control of the sales process. The virtual showroom is a multi-tiered platform that includes elements such as CGI videos, 360º product walkthroughs, sales videos, and a friendly online tour. The £40,000 investment provides the tools to effortlessly manage leads from enquiry through to sale, and demonstrates the company’s commitment to technological advancement.
People play a central role at Starglaze and Sternfenster’s Family Principles and Training and Development Framework underpin many of the window fabricator’s business functions.
Having been awarded Silver Investors in People in October 2020 the company’s vision is to attain Gold, something that only 19% of businesses achieve. To meet this ambitious goal, Sternfenster has created a series of bespoke training and development initiatives for its staff, who will, in turn, drive the success of the business.
The LincolnshireLive Business Awards, in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, gives companies of all sizes within the region a chance to be recognised for the work they do.
