Sternfenster Named One of Region’s Best-Performing Businesses

Published 19th May 2016 by Sternfenster Categories: Updates

Starglaze, the holding company for respected Lincoln-based window and door trade fabricator Sternfenster, has been named one of the East Midlands’ fastest-growing companies in a recent authoritative study.

The East Midlands Top 200 Report, compiled by financial advisers Grant Thornton and the CBI, ranked Starglaze/Sternfenster 57th among the region’s 200 most dynamic firms, which includes businesses operating in areas as diverse as finance, agriculture, services and property and construction. The fabricator is also Lincolnshire’s 5th best performing company, according to the same study.

In recent years, Sternfenster has seen impressive growth thanks to its forward-thinking investment in product development, new manufacturing technologies, increasing operational efficiency, and strengthening its brand. With invoice sales growing 64% between January 2014 and January 2015, the fabricator is a strong contributor to the East Midlands’ economy and, alongside the other companies mentioned in the top, has helped generate an increase of 36% in new jobs in the region over the past three years.

“We’re delighted to feature in the report,” commented Sternfenster managing director, Mike Parczuk. “It is part of the pay-off for our long-term investment and product development strategy we’ve been pursuing in recent years. As a proud family business, we believe that the surest route to growth is doing our utmost to help our customers grow – offering them innovative, desirable products to give them an edge in competitive markets and assist them to differentiate their offering, backed with industry-leading customer service that includes strategic sales and marketing support.”

“In the coming months, we’ll be continuing to invest in our people and products. Most notably, we’ll be opening a new aluminium factory which will generate a further 53 jobs over the next three years, and we’ll also launch a series of innovative products.”

“One of these is a brand new addition to our hugely successful StyleLine range, a timber alternative flush sash PVC-U window designed to suit period properties, based on Deceuninck’s Heritage flush sash system.”

Founded in 1974, today Sternfenster operates from a state-of-the-art 80,000 sq. ft. factory in Lincoln, employing close to 170 people. Directors Mike and Simon Parczuk, who spearhead the company, are sons of the original founders.
