Fit Show - The Highlights

30th May 2019

Last week, the team at Eurocell reaped the results of months of hard work and preparation as we exhibited at FIT Show. For three days, we spent time liaising with fabricators, installers and fellow manufacturers at the UK’s only exhibition for the window, door, conservatory, and glazing industry. For those that didn’t manage to attend, we’ve taken a look at our highlights over the course of the show. 

Product launches

This year, we used FIT Show to launch 10 new products and one of the undisputed highlights was seeing our customers’ reactions to these. One of the products that particularly caught the attention of many visitors to our stand was our Logik S Flush Sash, which opens up new markets for both fabricators and installers and adds market leading versatility to the Logik system by offering three sash options in one system.

To complement the new Logik S flush sash windows, we currently have flush French doors in development. Providing a flush external aesthetic, these new French doors with be another great addition to the Eurocell range. We showed a prototype on our stand at FIT Show and the reception was very positive but you’ll have to wait a few more months to get your hands on our newest patio system…

Sustainability panel

If you’ve been following Eurocell and the work we do for a while, you’ll know that sustainability is high on our agenda and this is something that we knew we needed to highlight at FIT Show. Not only was our team on-stand to talk about our recycling capabilities, but our Group Head of Marketing, Chris Coxon, was also on a panel discussion talking about how sustainability and recycling can benefit those working in the manufacture, fabrication and installation of PVC-U windows.

 The panel looked at the positive action the industry is taking regarding sustainability and recycling and why this needs to be shouted about more to encourage others within the supply chain to adopt the same mentality. With a record breaking 1.2 million frames recycled in 2018, Eurocell is the UK’s number one recycler of PVC-U profiles so it was great to be able to share the benefits of this in front of a captive audience.

Celebrity guests

If you came by the Eurocell stand, you may have seen a few familiar faces. This year, we had builder, TV personality and Eurocell Champion, Craig Phillips, on stand each day. Attendees were able to chat, take pictures and even play a round of golf with Craig who has recently completed his ‘Dream Build’ home project, fitting Eurocell PVC-U windows and bi-fold doors throughout to maximise thermal efficiency.

We also had a fleeting visit from George Clark, of George Clark’s Amazing Spaces, who came to check out our new product launches and sink a few putts on our stand! 

Meeting contacts – old and new!

FIT Show is the perfect time to meet with our industry contacts and we definitely took advantage of this. Whether it was having a catch up with our current customers or showing journalists our new product launches, we didn’t have a quiet five minutes!
