Shelforce has been shortlisted for two awards at the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce Annual Dinner and Awards 2020.
The window and door manufacturer is up for Excellence in Contribution to the Community AND Excellence in People Development.
Shelforce specialises in providing high-quality PVCu and aluminium products to local authority building projects, working closely with Birmingham City Council, and 75 per cent of its workforce has a disability.
Howard Trotter, Shelforce’s Business Manager, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to receive two nominations at what is one of the most prestigious events in the region’s business calendar.
“Shelforce has always been synonymous with contributing to the community and delivering social and commercial outcomes for the citizens of Birmingham.
“We also help some of the city’s most vulnerable people develop their life skills and the skills they need to work as a team and deliver high quality products in a competitive market.”
In the last year Shelforce has provided windows and doors for the revamp of the 20-storey Barry Jackson Tower to help homeless families and manufactured the aluminium windows for the city’s first ever modular home.
And Shelforce is set to open a training facility to equip young people with disabilities with the skills and confidence for employment.
The annual dinner and awards takes place at the ICC Birmingham on Thursday, March 19 and is set to attract over 1,300 guests from businesses across Greater Birmingham.
