Edgetech at FIT - As Good as it Gets

Edgetech, a Quanex company, reports that the FIT show and the quantity and quality of visitors to its stand was ‘as good as it gets.

The IGU solutions partner’s double decker stand was packed during the three days as customers and prospects came to find out more about the top performance Super Spacer range and be among the first to see Edgetech’s new product launches, including the new TruPlas rigid spacer.        Andy Jones, Managing Director comments: “We took 190 leads during FIT, and when you consider that there are approximately 1000 IGU manufacturers in the UK, that represents just over 19% of our total market place on our stand.While shows can be great for lead generation and raising brand awareness, getting orders on the day is not necessarily the way it works, so we were delighted to sell 8 new Super Shop manual application lines during the exhibition.

“We also had a lot of interest in Bostik’s sealant range with both new and existing customers placing orders, a further illustration that our strategy to become the one stop shop for IGU manufacturers is paying off. With more product launches planned over coming months, we are already in the unique position to be able to offer single seal (Duralite), Dual seal (TruPlas rigid and Super Spacer flexible) and Triple seal spacer systems (TriSeal and T-Spacer), as well as sealants. In addition to raising awareness of the cost effective and productivity benefits of our warm edge technology to new customers, we also officially signed the deal to supply one of the big names in glass unit manufacture: Global Glass and there will be more on this in coming weeks.

“All in all, the show for Edgetech could not have gone better, and for the industry as a whole, I think we’ve all done ourselves proud.”
