Ritec were one of five businesses chosen for The Big Innovation Pitch, an initiative aiming to unearth innovation across the sustainable design, construction and energy sectors.The final five were grilled ‘Dragon’s Den’ Style by representatives from Marks & Spencer, the CPA, CIBSE and BAM FM.
Following its successful pitch, Ritec welcomed visitors onto its product-packed stand who were keen to find out more about the benefits of its extensive range of durable ‘non-stick’ surface technologies. Proving to be the first and only glazing component with a three-way guarantee covering performance, added value and profit at every step of the supply chain, Ritec demonstrated how the new ClearShield Eco-System™ can provide both energy and cost savings by enabling future cleaning regimes to be carried out in “half the frequency with half the time and effort”, on average.
Visitors were shown how the ClearShield Eco-System™ transforms new or old glass into a higher value product with low-maintenance performance. Customers do not have to stock a new type of glass either; Ritec's simple added-value package enables unprotected glass to be either upgraded into ClearShield Eco-Glass™ in the factory or renovated, protected and maintained on-site.
Ritec also showcased their new ‘One Stop Shop’ for surface renovation, protection and maintenance that offers customers solutions specifically tailored to their problems. It utilises Ritec’s total systems including the Ritecoat System™ for metal and painted surfaces. In addition, Ritec’s expertise allows the company to continually develop and improve technologies for the renovation, protection and maintenance of a wide range of surfaces in and around the home.
Stephen Byers, Managing Director, says “Being named as one of the top five innovations at Ecobuild was the highlight of the show for us and recognises the cost savings, customers can achieve by using the new ClearShield Eco-System™. After impressing the judges, we now look forward to taking our relationship with M&S to the next level.”
Ritec’s stand was a hive of activity and we gained a number of serious sales leads. If you were unable to come along to the exhibition but are interested in what we showcased, please contact us and we’ll be delighted to discuss it with you.”
