Timber growth

FIT Show has reported a growth in the number of timber brands signing up for its 2019 exhibition.

Companies include Bereco, West-Port and Cardinal Windows.  

Estonian window manufacturer Viking Windows will make its FIT Show debut lining up alongside European giant Inwido which is made up of CWG Choices, Allan Bros and Jack Brunsdon and Son.

Completing the latest sign-ups are timber machinery expert Felder, and timber coating provider Teknos.

The FIT Show has also received support from the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) and The Wood Window Alliance (WWA), with both bodies set to have a presence at the event in 2019.

The influx of timber brands will sit alongside FIT Show’s PVCU and aluminium lineup, as well as its new flat glass proposition Visit Glass, which will be dedicated to the flat glass sector and will include products and machinery.

FIT Show event director Nickie West said: “The introduction of timber to FIT Show is a clear sign of our intentions to broaden the appeal of the show to new audiences, with timber serving as a material to inspire connections from, among others, the fit out, joinery, heritage and procurement sectors.

“It was a natural move for us to include a wider scope for timber to be incorporated within FIT Show, and will serve as a further mechanism to attract specifiers who have shown a clear demand for this material. We’re excited to see this product represented at FIT Show 2019.”

FIT Show 2019 will take place at the NEC Birmingham from May 21 to 23, and will feature up to 300 exhibitors from across the window, door, conservatory and glass industry.
