Cutting edge

Edgetech has announced that it will launch a brand-new product at FIT Show 2019.

For the past two years, Edgetech says it has focused on a three-tier strategy of ‘innovation, operational excellence and customers at the centre’ – and adds that the 2019 FIT Show serves as the perfect platform for the company to share the results so far.

Edgetech’s stand will form part of Visit Glass, the new ‘show-within-a-show’ dedicated to glass manufacturing, processing and installation.

Visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of Edgetech’s spacer products, its new online ordering system and further digital enhancements to its technical service offering.

Edgetech’s commercial projects manager, Joe Erb, will also be flying in from the US to give a daily seminar.

With a quarter of a century of fenestration sector expertise, Joe is chairman of America’s Insulating Glass Certification Council, and one of Edgetech’s most experienced and longest-serving employees.

According to Edgetech, Joe has taken the lead in growing the company’s presence in the commercial and architectural markets – and his FIT Show presentation will focus on changing trends in the architectural sector, including the rising importance of shaped units, sustainability, and automated manufacturing.

He’ll also touch on the dramatic rise of traditionally commercial products in the residential sector, like bi-fold and patio doors.

On the Tuesday night, Edgetech will mark the 30th anniversary of its Super Spacer with a party at its stand. “We always look forward to the FIT Show, but this one is shaping up to be particularly special,” commented Edgetech managing director, Chris Alderson.

“We’ll be taking the opportunity to celebrate Super Spacer’s astounding success over three decades with friends throughout the industry. We’ll be introducing customers to our new e-commerce system. And, after a lot of intensive research and development behind the scenes, we’ll be unveiling our cutting-edge new spacer product.

“I’m also delighted that Joe Erb, one of Edgetech’s most senior and long-serving employees, will be making the journey to share his wisdom with us!

“We are looking forward to celebrating our history while bringing our customers the future of IG technology – please join us on stand C24.”
