Thanks to every single customer and colleague who joined us at this year’s FIT Show and helped to make it such as success for AluK. It was a fantastic three days and we were really delighted with the feedback from visitors on our impressive stand, our friendly and knowledgeable team, and of course our exciting new products – the AluK C70S window and the S119LM slim slider.
We generated hundreds of enquiries from potential new customers and from existing ones looking to do more with us, and we’ll be following up all of those in the coming days.
What was clear from the people we talked to was that they still see aluminium as being the key driving force for growth within the industry. And, you only had to look around to see the proportion of exhibitors with aluminium products on their stands for the first time to see real evidence of that.
As the AluK stand made very clear – we’re ‘leading the way’ in that growth and are committed to supporting all those customers who choose to partner with us –in product development, technical support, collaboration, and service.
We’re still waiting to see the full analysis of the visitor numbers at FIT 2019, but we would estimate that they would similar to 2017 when around 10,000 came through the doors. The organisers were hoping to attract more installers this time around with lots of relevant seminars and incentives, so it will be interesting to see how successful they were in that.
From an exhibitor’s perspective, they did a tremendous job and we’d like to pass on our congratulations and thanks to the whole team.
