    Sunsquare takes
    EADT Business of the Year 2016 crown

    arrow Back to news 8th July 2016

    It was a night to remember for the UK’s flat roof skylight pioneers on Thursday as Sunsquare secured two prestigious awards at the East Anglian Daily Times Business Awards 2016.

    Sunsquare initially took the gong for the Best Medium Sized Business but the real icing on the cake was the acknowledgement of the company’s growth and innovation by being crowned the overall East Anglian Daily Times Business of the Year Awards for 2016.


    The business has gone from strength to strength in recent years, recently becoming the rooflight industry’s first manufacturer to have secured the BSI Kitemark for its entire product range. Investment in design innovation remains at the forefront of Sunsquare’s success but the business is also mindful of its environmental footprint as well as its links with the local community.


    Mark Lambert, sales director, Sunsquare, said: “Everyone at Sunsquare is absolutely thrilled to have received such recognition among our peers. The Business of the Year award feels like the culmination of many months of effort internally to ensure our business operates with the utmost efficiency, whilst maintaining a commitment to delivering world-leading flat roof skylights across the country and beyond.


    “Aside from our ground-breaking BSI Kitemark – setting a new benchmark for rooflight safety and performance – we’ve also worked with the BSI to secure accreditation for the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard – developed for businesses with sustainability at the core of their day-to-day operations.


    “Sunsquare has been on this journey for some time. The certifications demonstrate to the outside world what has been done so far and mark a determination to improve further still.”


    The company does not shirk its responsibilities within the local community either; donating £10 from every order this year to the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH).


    Last year, Sunsquare raised an impressive £15,000 for EACH, which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the eastern region.


    In total, Sunsquare have raised £18,900 for EACH and the company is set to be given a ‘Pay for a day’ award from EACH as its investment will fund a full day of services across East Anglia for a 24-hour period.


    “We have always believed in investing in our business but also being humble about our success,” added Lambert.


    Sunsquare’s newly-appointed managing director, Chris Chaney, was equally delighted to see the company gain recognition for its professionalism and commitment to the UK rooflight industry.


    “I am privileged to have joined a top team of people in Sunsquare. These awards are really something special and show the skills and professionalism I have to lead to more success in the future,” said Chaney.


    “Our customers will be the winners with the products and quality of service that we produce.”
