THEFITSHOWREVIEW Innovation on display at the FIT Show Deceuninck’s Managing Director Roy Frost has hailed his company’s presence at the FIT Show as a huge success. “Our corner of Hall 3 was a hub of innovation that demonstrated the cutting edge solutions our industry can offer. It was buzzing with activity and excitement about what’s out there.” Sharing Deceuninck’s corner of Hall 3 was Dempsey Dyer, and its stand showcased its Beaumont window range, designed to bridge the gap between welded PVC-U and timber, and attracted a great deal of attention. MB Frames, another Deceuninck fabricator, displayed its Royale range, with a particular focus on coloured products. Alongside these companies was Residence 9, whose new flush sash window “stole the show”, according to Roy. Roy concludes, “The FIT Show was a fantastic opportunity to show the innovation and quality that Deceuninck can offer and brought us lots of leads and prospects. But more importantly, the show pulled together the best of our industry and showed everyone the quality that’s available. I’m delighted that the show will return next year and we have already booked our stand.” Tel: 01249 816969, Fax: 01249 815234, Email:, Web: 20 YEAR PARTNERSHIP MARKED AT FIT SHOW Essex based fabricators Climatec Windows Ltd had a very special reason to visit the FIT show in Telford – the company was celebrating its 20th birthday and the continuation of its 20 year partnership with REHAU. Directors Phil Bates and Steve Barker were welcomed on to the REHAU stand by REHAU Chief Executive Martin Hitchin and Regional Sales Manager Glyn Rogers and were presented with a certificate and an engraved trophy to mark the occasion. Steve Barker said: “To be presented with this award as recognition of our longstanding association with REHAU means a great deal to us. We have always worked well with REHAU and pride ourselves on the relationship that we have built over the years. We are sure this path will continue into the future and there are exciting times ahead for Climatec as we move into our 21st year of business.” Martin Hitchin echoed these sentiments: “The FIT show proved the perfect setting for Climatec’s presentation. Our stand was very much focused around inviting customers into the REHAU family and Climatec are of course one of the oldest members of that family.” Tel: 01989 762600, Fax: 01989 762701, Web: A SHAPED SHOWING Universal Arches had an incredible FIT Show, helped by the fact that each visitor was given a key to attempt to open an arched Solidor composite door on the stand. Those succeeding were entered into a prize draw to win an iPad mini on the last day of the show. 2,087 people attempted to open the door with just a few succeeding. This figure was based on the number of visitor passes scanned; yet the actual figures were considerably higher. In the end, Barking Windows from London was drawn by Matthew Glover, director of the FIT Show, and they will now receive their shinny new iPad mini. Elsewhere on the stand, visitors had the opportunity to meet the experienced team at the profile bending specialist and see some of their impressive product samples. This included the incredible fabricated Universal Arches logo, which involved 5 bends, an incredible 67 welds and taking 35 man hours in total. Residence 9 also featured on the stand with circular pivot and arched head windows. Leon Day, managing director of Universal Arches commented: “What a great show not only for Universal Arches, but for the industry as a whole.” Visit, phone 01744 612844 or follow @universalarches on Twitter.
