British Gypsum, part of the Saint-Gobain group, has been crowned Manufacturer of the Year at the 2013 Building Awards. The company picked up the accolade at the prestigious construction industry event in recognition of its focus on innovation, sustainable practices and corporate social responsibility activities in the past 12 months.
The award win follows a number of key developments for British Gypsum in the last year. The manufacturer launched ground-breaking solutions and technologies such as ACTIVair, and became the first UK plaster and drylining producer to achieve a BES 6001 ‘very good’ for a core range of products. In late 2012, British Gypsum also helped to raise over £100,000 in just 100 days for construction charity, CRASH, and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Mike Chaldecott, managing director at British Gypsum, said: “In the past year, we’ve focused on making key developments that have a real positive impact for our customers, so we’re really proud that this has been recognised by the built environment industry at the highest level.
“As a business, we want to ensure we’re delivering the best possible service to our customers – whether that’s in terms of products or a more sustainable supply chain - and this award shows that we’re leading the sector in delivering that aim.”
British Gypsum was announced as Building’s Manufacturer of the Year 2013 at a ceremony on Thursday 18th April at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
