Renowned for offering value added solutions to the glass and door industries, RegaLead was back at FIT with a host of new products and services, delivered via its three specialist divisions: Coatings, Door Products and Glass. Reflecting changing home improvement trends, the company used FIT to launch several innovations in this sector focusing on colour, aluminium doors and the continued expansion of its composite door offering.
Joint MD Guy Hubble comments: “2017 was undoubtedly the best FIT show yet for RegaLead and I’d say, for the industry as a whole. The words ‘reminiscent of Glassex in its heyday’ came up a lot, but I’d disagree. I think it terms of commercial benefit for RegaLead and for visitors to our stand, FIT 2017 outperformed. The quality and quantity of enquiries and sales we generated, reflected the dynamic nature of our industry and its desire for new home improvement products.
“RegaLead’s new URBAN aluminium entrance door system impressed visitors who want to fabricate their own aluminium doors in-house, without paying through the nose for full doorsets or enduring long lead times on European infill panels. We signed up several URBAN launch partners during the show. We enjoyed huge interest in our coatings solutions, comprising both conventional solvented systems and new for FIT 2017, our Aqua water-based system. We were also delighted that Mark Schubert from Schubert Technical Services Ltd joined us on the stand and has generated huge interest in the Schubox® IR Catalytic drying system.
‘When we decided to launch these new products, we knew the demand was there but if anything, the exhibition has proved to us that these markets are even bigger than we anticipated. In summary, FIT 2017 proved itself to be a show relevant for its time and absolutely the right place to see new products and services that will support our industry’s sales and growth over coming months. RegaLead was proud to be part of this.”
