The FIT Show has announced that traditional sash manufacturer, Cardinal Windows, has signed up to the 2019 event, further strengthening the number of timber window companies who have reportedly shown an interest in the exhibition.
The company, whose key staff are said to boast over 150 combined years of experience, offers bespoke windows to specifiers and installers who seek traditionally styled, timber sliding box sash windows that feature the latest standards of high performance. Having seen demand grow for real wood windows, the firm says that it now sees the FIT Show as the ‘best shop window’ to reach its trade target markets.
Marketing manager, Jamie Hackett, explained: “We want to talk to a range of potential customers, including window installers and specifiers, together with architects, developers and small building companies and we know we will meet many of them at the FIT Show. Our customers include designers and builders of new homes right through to those responsible for the most sensitive period renovations.
“The event has proven itself to be the focal point for all of the UK window industry, so that is where we want to be, especially now that so many others in the timber window sector are thinking the same thing.
“Everyone in PVC and aluminium is shouting about their ‘authentic timber alternatives’ but what they are really doing is emphasising how much people still aspire to having the real thing,” Jamie concluded. “More and more homeowners and trade customers are realising this. As a manufacturer, we have the skills and the infrastructure to satisfy this need and, in the FIT Show, we have the vehicle to get that message across.”
