THEFITSHOWREVIEW FIT for the Future Carl F Groupco reports a highly successful FIT Show - throughout the three days the stand was consistently busy with visits from both existing and potential new customers. Heavy investment had been made in the 80sq metre, purpose built stand which displayed individual lines and complete working systems. Main ranges from the Company’s portfolio of distributed products were shown including Cotswold Architectural, FUHR, Fullex, Greenwood, Hoppe, Kenrick, MACO, PN, Siegenia and Trojan. Commenting, Managing Director John Crittenden said: “The industry got its MOJO back at the FIT Show. A buzz returned that was reminiscent of Glassex at its height and this has given a much needed confidence boost to the sector. “I am extremely proud of the team work and presence of our company at the event: approaching three years after Carl F Groupco was formed, we demonstrated that we are in a strengthened position offering one of the largest product portfolios i n the industry.” Carl F Groupco has achieved its objectives of maintaining a strong service focus, incorporating leading brand hardware and introducing own brand products to address the price driven sector of the market.

Expertly compered by The FIT Show’s very own Paul Godwin, guests were provided with the perfect opportunity to exchange the exhibition floors for the dance floor and treated to a night filled with entertainment. The Sales Professional of the Year and Master Fitter Challenge competitions also reached a dramatic conclusion with cash prizes totalling £20,000 handed out to the winners, as Adrian Phillips of Nolan UPVC and Arron Clegg of Eco-Sash were crowned respectively. Adrian walked away with a total cash prize of £10,000, to be shared between himself and his employer, whilst Arron pocketed £5,000 for his first-place finish ahead of runner-up Scott Higgs of Polar Windows who won £3,000 and third-placed Nigel Grant of Nigel Grant UPVC who took away £2,000. Not only did Arron take away a huge wad of cash, but he also has the honour of having the Master Fitter Challenge Winner logo emblazoned on van sides, in his company’s showroom and on all company literature.
