Designed ‘in the round’, Carl F Groupco’s stand saw brisk trade with visitors walking the course to view the company’s extensive window, door and patio hardware displays. The company reports a good mix of enquiries from both long-standing and new customers.
Based on the success of the show for Carl F Groupco, the company has confirmed re-booking for the 2016 exhibition in the same stand location.
Video animation, full profiles and sample boards gave a comprehensive overview, with freshly baked cookies being an added incentive to visit. Working product features were demonstrated, including the smoothness of the Siegenia HS Portal 300 lift and slide hardware gliding on its castors with the push of just one finger.
Reporting a healthy upturn month on month since March 2013, Carl F Groupco announced 12.8% growth over the last year and is confident that the green shoots are set to continue. Key factors influencing the positive outlook for the company are a company-wide commitment to 98% next-day deliveries in time and in full, plus investment in systems and people including a technical support service. Managing Director John Crittenden commented on a reassuring trend towards high-value hardware which reinforces the company’s confidence in its ongoing expansion.
