Wakefield manufacturer gets skates on for Olympic order

The team at Wakefield glazing company ICW (UK) Ltd got their skates on to deliver a major contract for the Sochi Olympics.

With just weeks to go the company was asked  by a major food company to make windows for  an exhibition centre which will showcase at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

The firm had just weeks to design, deliver and delivered to the sub tropical Russian resort with enough time to spare o be fitted then safety tested.

Managing director Mick Broadhead said:

“They will be used in doors for an exhibition centre at the Winter Olympics so it is a great showcase for our products although the majority of people will now know we have done them,” said .

“It was a very exacting commission because they have to deliver 100 per cent visuals yet withstand a constant hammering over a very short time span, approximately two weeks and conform to very demanding Olympic standards.”

Chairman, Margaret Wood, said:

“It is our 21st anniversary this year  so to be commissioned by one of the world’s leading food groups to make products for the top winter sports event in the calendar is very special.

“It was a demanding commission because they will have to withstand tremendous stress allowing thousands of people through daily in a short time span, but they felt confident coming to us.”
