Edgetech Takes Emerald Award For Safety

Edgetech has received a safety & stakeholder emerald award from parent company Quanex for its rigorous safety processes and for the exemplary conduct of its employees.

For Quanex (the billion-dollar, US building products powerhouse that owns Edgetech the spacer bar firm and Liniar the window profile and plastic building products producer), celebrating success is a part of the group’s culture. This is why the Houston-based firm is proud to hold an annual internal awards event – and this year, Edgetech’s commitment to safety was singled out for praise.

Edgetech Coventry received a Safety & Stakeholder Emerald award. In addition, Jason Blundred, Edgetech Coventry’s long-serving head of operations, received the President’s Service award for his decades of work at the company.



Edgetech’s managing director Chris Alderson says: “At Quanex, we believe that highlighting and celebrating our successes is a vital part of sustaining a world-class business. Recognising the incredible contribution made by thousands of Quanex employees around the globe makes us proud of everything we achieve.

“For me, it’s especially gratifying to see Edgetech’s efforts to maintain a safe, efficient working environment be recognised in this way. I’m also extremely pleased for Jason. His commitment to the company is incredible and we’re extremely fortunate to have him.”
