2020 vision

The annual Everglade Trade Customer Conference attracted more than 100 business owners and leaders.

Managing director Yogesh Gopal welcomed guests and sales and marketing director Jay Patel introduced nine new product launches as well as new services and support.

Jay also highlighted the speed of change the world, and more specifically the industry, has seen during the last 10 years. From Uber and Alexa to aluminium and Smart technology, these things and more have changed the way we live and the way we do business.

Titled ‘2020 Vision: Progressing Your Business for the Next Decade’, the conference focused on winning work for modern, professional businesses.

Jay said: “We officially unveiled One Collection PVCU windows and doors at the conference. It’s a comprehensive range that includes flush windows and doors, with 26 colourways available from stock. We also added new Solidor contemporary doors, aluminium designer doors, Jack Aluminium’s TD68 thermal commercial door and shopfront, and the Ultion Smart lock.”

The biggest announcement of the day was the aïr MOD-Series, featuring five window and door products harmonised into one holistic system.

“As well as our team, we had some impressive speakers covering a range of topics including social media, financial planning, the Consumer Rights Act, cyber security, and technical and installation advice,” Jay said. “Each year we look to bring new support and expertise for customers. Feedback from delegates has been great, and we will look at adding more topics next year.”
