THEFITSHOWREVIEW Celebrating an outstanding FIT Show The Trojan Group’s sales team is going to have a busy few weeks following up on enquiries made at the FIT Show. The Company’s stand was busy throughout all three days of the show and staff were inundated with enquiries. Tony Chadwick, Trojan’s Group Managing Director said, “Our existing customers were extremely interested in our newest products, the Stallion 3 Window Lock and the Sparta 3 Window Handle. But we also got a lot of interest from potential new customers. We are one of the biggest hardware names in the industry and we’ve got a reputation for quality and innovation. But sometimes, people need to see the products for themselves to understand just how much they have to offer. The FIT Show was the perfect opportunity for people to do that and we were overwhelmed with the interest we received.” Trojan’s two newest products, the Stallion 3 and the new look Sparta 3, attracted a lot of attention from existing customers who already understand the value that Trojan can bring to a business. Trojan’s stainless steel range also proved exceptionally popular with both existing and potential customers.
