THEFITSHOWREVIEW securing long-term Success Leading UK manufacturer of Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacer bars and IG component supplier Thermoseal Group, announces its success in securing business at The FIT Show. Samantha Hill, Marketing Manager at Thermoseal Group, says: “The Fit Show proved to be a great success for Thermoseal Group as we managed to secure a deal for the long-term warm edge spacer business with two of the largest independent sealed unit manufacturers in the UK. Clayton Glass and Village Glass are now Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer Bar Customers. We also have a multitude of leads for both Thermobar and Thermoflex Warm Edge Spacers.” “The show itself was much busier than we expected and our position just by the main entrance of Hall 1 provided us with a constant flow of traffic. This gave us a great opportunity to show our highest performance spacer bar range to Fabricators and Installers, whilst ensuring that we met up with some of our key customers and contacts visiting the show. I’d personally like to say a big thank you to the organisers of the FIT Show and the networking opportunities they facilitated.” Call + 44 (0)121 331 3950 or visit www.thermosealgroup.com for further information. ‘We also have a multitude of leads’ the first of many The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) was pleased with the success of the FIT Show in Telford last week.
