JELD-WEN, the UK's leading manufacturer of timber windows and
doors, is celebrating success after scooping the coveted award for
Website of the Year at the Timber Trades Journal (TTJ) Awards
The TTJ Awards, the UK's premier awards event for the timber and
wood products sector, was held at The Savoy in London on Thursday
12 September and hosted by broadcaster Huw Edwards.
JELD-WEN has invested heavily in its new website, which launched
earlier this year. Marking the manufacturer's move towards a
digital marketing strategy, the new site has been intuitively
designed to seamlessly navigate customers through the procurement
process. In addition to increasing brand awareness and inspiring
visitors to experiment with new styles, the site also delivers
tailored messaging to each of the JELD-WEN's key audiences, keeping
trade professionals informed of the latest industry news and
updating consumers of new trends and product launches.
Stylish, interactive functions on the site, such as the design
tool, allow customers to make choices with confidence and the
extensive use of video delivers practical information in an easily
digestible format. Current video content includes 'How to install'
demos, 'Products in use' clips, fire door advice, product testing
videos and timber vs uPVC research results.
Brant McNaughton, TTJ Awards judge and director of website
design company Ecce Media, said: "A great deal of thought, time and
effort had gone into producing a very impressive website. It is
clean, clear and concise, the visuals are appealing and features
such as the comparison and design tools helped lift it head and
shoulders above the competition. All in all a great website - well
designed and a worthy winner."
Lucy Woodhead, communications manager at JELD-WEN, said: "We're
thrilled with our award for Website of the Year. It's such fabulous
recognition of the investment we've made in improving our website
and making JELD-WEN more accessible to both our trade and consumer
customers. Since launching in March, we've exceeded expectations
and have enjoyed some extremely positive feedback from our
visitors. We're looking forward to keeping the industry informed of
the latest news from JELD-WEN and supporting our customers in their
