STAND NO. 225 Heritage and the Future FOTO: 62nord, Johan Holmquist »»FRANK FAY, NATIONAL Sales Manager for Spilka tells us why the company’s heritage in the UK is also the bedrock for its future, and how its ‘creating value together’ philosophy is as important now as it has ever been. “Spilka has had a very strong market presence in the UK since the 1970s and we continue to enjoy a great relationship with all the major players in the industry. We have always believed in ‘creating value together’ – it is what has underpinned the way we do business, and it will remain that way long into the future. “We are best known for our reversible hinges of course, and our most recent version the ‘Opus’ has been really well received for its technical qualities and functionality. We know from our research and development that it complies with all the current legislation for safety, egress, cleaning and security and will continue to do so for many years to come. The FIT Show at Telford will allow us to showcase this and other products. “It is because of the technical qualities of our products, and the way we have introduced them to the market that we Scandinavian design have been able to build a reputation for reliability and trustworthiness. This is very much our heritage in the UK market “Even though Spilka has a long history in the successful production of window hardware systems, we believe we are still at the starting point. There is much more to come and we are looking forward to continue working with our partners in the UK to unleash their full potential together. “As I said at the outset, it is very much about creating value together and we are looking forward to continue our existing partnerships and developing new ones.” Visit them on stand 225 in Hall 2 at the FIT Show Spilka of Norway is the originator of the hinge solution for production of fully reversible windows.
