Featuring more than 175 exhibitors demonstrating the latest products within the glass and glazing industry, professionals from across the UK will be using The FIT Show 2016 as the hub for their company’s purchasing activities.
West-Country fabricator Seal-Lite Group was one of these companies in 2014, after deciding it would attend The Fit Show in search of a new welder amongst other machinery.
Jim and Chris Shearn of the Seal-Lite Group reasoned that rather than driving around the country looking at the equipment, The FIT Show could allow them to compare machines virtually side by side under one roof, saving time and money.
Jim explains: “There were a number of welding machines on our radar, all exhibiting at FIT Show, in particular a 4 head inline welding machine from Haffner-Murat, the SMR-4. It had some new features and benefits over and above machines offered by other suppliers but I had no idea about the build quality offered by this company.
I am an engineer with an aerospace background and understand and appreciate engineering, build-quality and technology and I took the opportunity to literally climb all over the machine, on top of it and as far inside it as I could get. One of their team said to me that he had never seen anyone climb over one of their machines like it at a show before. But clearly we were impressed because we bought it there and then.”
The FIT Show will take place at the International Centre Telford between the 12th-14th April 2016. The event is free to attend, however registering early will offer fast access to the halls upon arrival.
