The people responsible for running the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and its associate bodies – Fensa, the BFRC (for window and door energy ratings), Installsure (specialist insurance) and RISA (for inspections) – are inviting visitors to this year’s Fit Show to ‘come and press the flesh’, and find out more about how each organisation works. The team is set to be based at Stand T41.
In addition new initiatives launched by the GGF – including the Skilled Pathways training scheme, its ‘Window of Opportunity’ research and the glass recycling scheme – the Fit Show presents a rare opportunity for visitors to learn more about the organisations that represent the UK glass and glazing industry and thousands of member companies, according to the GGF’s officers.
“The GGF Group continually researches, develops and launches initiatives designed to provide members and non-members with valuable and tangible support,” said Tom Butler, head of sales and marketing. “But we welcome the opportunity to actually meet the people that we serve who are at the coalface every day.
“We believe that meeting people face-to-face will allow us both to understand each other better. The Fit Show provides that opportunity. Come and find out what we are about!
In the past year alone, the GGF and its sister organisations have been responsible for launching pulse testing, to assess property trickle vent requirements and a free glass recycling service, adding to its aluminium and PVC-U frame recycling operations. The Fit Show provides ‘an ideal forum’ for visitors to discuss and book these services, the GGF’s representatives have said.
“We will have staff on hand throughout the Fit Show to discuss the enormous number of initiatives and support services that GGF Group provides for every level of the glass and glazing industry,” added Tom. “This is the best opportunity we will have for a couple of years to meet each other.”
