A Fantastic FIT Show for Aluminium says AluFoldDirect


Leading aluminium fabricator AluFoldDirect has praised FIT Show 2017’s showcasing of aluminium. As well as visiting the show, AluFoldDirect played a big part in the show, helping AluK create its fantastic stand in Hall 8 and appearing on the seminar programme.

Craig Miller, Managing Director at AluFoldDirect said: “I thought FIT Show really shone this year, and with such a high percentage of aluminium companies exhibiting, it really reflected the state of today’s market.”

AluFoldDirect fabricated the new bi-fold and sliding aluminium doors that featured on the AluK stand. Craig was also chosen as an expert in The State of the Market debate, chaired by FIT Show organiser Paul Godwin on the AluK stand on day one of FIT.

It was the first seminar of the AluK programme and featured Justin Ratcliffe, CEO at the Council for Aluminium Building, John Cowie, Editor at Windows Active and Allan Wilén from construction industry analyst Glenigan.

Drawing an audience of fabricators and installation companies, the discussion focussed on the growth of aluminium in the domestic market, skills gaps within the industry and the impact of Brexit.

Craig said: “The whole AluK seminar programme gave real insight into the way aluminium is transforming the industry. The State of the Market Debate was particularly interesting, because we were given insight from very different areas.

“It was great to give a fabricator’s viewpoint, and good that my experience chimed with other fabricators in the industry.”
