Switch on to savings

ExtrudaSeal has said it received high levels of interest in its range of gaskets and ancillaries at this year’s FIT Show.

Attending the event for the third time, the specialist manufacturer and supplier said installers and fabricators were there to ‘do business’, recognising the benefits that direct supply could deliver in improved performance and reduced costs.

Paul James, sales director at Extrudaseal, said: “Some of the problems that installers are getting with gasket supply, and the call backs that that is generating, coupled with the cost savings buying direct can deliver, meant that we saw a high level of interest throughout the show.

“What was very positive was that visitors included those who we had been talking to for a little while but who came and met us at FIT with a genuine desire to do business.

“Aluminium is buoyant and that was reflected in the demand that we saw at this year’s show.”

Extrudaseal manufactures gaskets for many systems, including Smart, Aluk, Metaltech and Ikon. Its customers achieve average savings of around 30% or 40% on gasket cost from their systems supplier, the company said.
