Carl F Groupco at FIT Show

John Crittenden, Managing Director, Carl F Groupco: “We’ve had the FIT Show with a lot of product launches to give the industry some impetus, but has the first half of 2016 lived up to budgetary expectations? And what of the rest of the year?"

John Crittenden: "Whether we, as a country, have voted to remain or leave the EU, what are your expectations for the second half of 2016?”

This year’s FIT Show definitely had a buzz with a number of product announcements and advancements: this reflected considerable industry investment and an optimism from the sector.

Carl F Groupco were one of the companies hitting the headlines with the introduction of SmartSecure - this continued expansion means we are on a very strong footing moving forward.The successful brand launch means the first half of 2016 has certainly lived up to expectations.

We are equally optimistic for the remainder of the year. Increasingly we are finding that fabricators are looking to add value to their offer through hardware. Additionally, we are working on more projects than ever before on our high end range, particularly door locks including the multitronic 881 electronic door lock, automatic locking 833 and 3* cylinders.

The market appears to be evolving away from supplying discounted doors, investing in new technologies to differentiate their offer and this is good news for the industry.
