Emotions ran high at the Château Frontenac ballroom in Quebec City, as the 5th annual AQMAT Recognition Gala (Quebec Hardware and Building Materials Association) saw sixteen awards presented to nine companies, JELD-WEN being one of them.
JELD-WEN received the Society Award, which acknowledges a commitment to ecological, social or humanitarian efforts, as recognized by clientele, suppliers and the community. A ballot involving 335 companies, as well as a jury of six independent experts, decided in favour of JELD-WEN for this honour.
The two finalists were Les Portes ARD and Louisiana-Pacific.
JELD-WEN is an international window and door manufacturer that helps promote energy efficiency and eco-responsibility. They have received five ENERGY STAR awards since 2006 and continue to be an advocate of environmental stewardship and sustainable practices.
