The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has released its Annual Report 2019, reporting on the activity and performance of the Federation for the year ending 31 December 2018.
The report covers a year that saw the GGF gain a record 67 new members, in what was a year of change, influence and preparation, as the regulations and standards came under Government scrutiny due to the inquiry in the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy and the UK’s pending exit from the European Union.
The GGF’s increased support for consumer-facing members was evident, with MyGlazing.com achieving record audience numbers of over 200,000 homeowners.
In addition, the report also highlighted the outstanding background work of the GGF technical team and the ongoing political activity the Federation carried out during the period.
The accounts yet again showed the organisation’s formidable financial strength and stability.
John Agnew, GGF President, commented: “Following a difficult transitional year, the GGF has ensured it maintains its position as the leading trade organisation in the industry.”
Steve Rice, GGF Managing Director, added: “It’s clear, the GGF’s core services are continuously benefiting our Members regardless of their size, position, sector and status.
“With the shifting political landscape, and uncertain economic and regulatory climate, we will continue to support our Members to help them cope with the changes ahead.”
