New initiative to be unveiled

Improveasy and Korniche have been announced as the latest sponsors of the Glazing Summit taking place on May 22 at the St Johns Hotel and Conference Centre in Birmingham.

Improveasy has been announced is a gold sponsor, and representatives will be on hand to talk about its latest initiative that will see them rolling out bespoke finance initiatives for manufacturers.

Austin Barcley, Improveasy’s managing director, said: “The glass and glazing industry has responded positively to our finance packages and more and more installers are becoming appointed representatives with us; and winning extra business as they are able to offer finance to customers.

“We are also building strong relationships with manufacturers and fabricators in the industry and offering them bespoke packages, whereby they can offer finance options to their networks. It’s something we’ve been working on for the last few months and we will be promoting it at the upcoming Glazing Summit.”
Aluminium lantern brand Korniche was launched at The FIT Show 2016, and provides installers with a lantern that is fast and easy to install. It was designed and developed by managing director Bradley Gaunt and his brother Ashley.

“The event presents a great opportunity for us to further promote the Korniche brand to the industry’s biggest and most respected names, as well join the conversation on what we are seeing in the aluminium lantern market and more broadly across the industry,” Bradley said.

Event organiser and Insight Data managing director, Andrew Scott said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Korniche as a sponsor of The Glazing Summit. Korniche is a fantastic example of a disruptor brand, bringing a pioneering new product to market which has changed the expectations of the industry and reimagined an entire product area.

“The success of brands like Korniche will be one of the many topics of discussion during the one-day summit, as we dissect the current industry landscape, investigate the increasing trend of growth by acquisition and look ahead to the future challenges and opportunities for the industry.”
