Made for Trade Celebrates Shortlist Success at National Fenestration Awards 2024!

We are thrilled to announce that Made for Trade has been shortlisted in an impressive 15 categories at the prestigious National Fenestration Awards (NFAs) 2024! This recognition is a true testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation in the fenestration industry.

What are the National Fenestration Awards?

The National Fenestration Awards are the industry’s first open platform awards, and aim to recognise all areas of the UK fenestration industry. Founded in 2013 in response to a groundswell of support for an independent and all-inclusive event, the National Fenestration Awards aim to recognise all areas of the UK fenestration industry by inviting everyone to register on the site and nominate and vote on who they think deserves recognition.

Unlike other awards, the NFAs are completely decided by industry participation. There are no judges and no panels at the National Fenestration Awards. The final outcome of the competition is decided completely by industry participation.
