Specialist aluminium fabricator Fentrade’s first time exhibiting at the FIT Show has seen it secure a strong pipeline of potential new work. Chris Reeks, Fentrade’s Director, said: “We were delighted to have a presence at FIT this year and to have secured so many new enquiries. It was great to see customers face-to-face and to meet many potential new customers too.”

The trade fabricator’s stand showcased the newest addition to the company’s range, the Concept Patio® 130 slide and lift-slide system from Reynaers. Chris commented: “The Reynaers CP 130 system attracted the attention we knew it would. It’s an incredibly versatile door system that offers a multitude of ways to deliver the large glazed expanses today’s homeowners are looking for.”

Also drawing visitors to Fentrade’s stand was the prize draw to win an overnight stay for two people at Celtic Manor Resort in Newport with a round of golf as well. Chris said: “Fentrade is a proudly Welsh business based in Newport and near to the Celtic Manor, which is one of Europe’s finest golfing destinations. It was a championship prize and it attracted the level of attention I knew it would! The prize was won by Kevin Stallard of Saje Upvc Limited”

Fentrade is a young company but its team has a wealth of industry experience and it has a rapidly growing reputation as a customer-focused business.

The company offers a comprehensive portfolio of products from renowned industry brands such as AluK, Reynaers and Kestrel Aluminium, all manufactured at its state-of-the-art facilities in Newport. It backs this up with exceptional customer service based on proactive communication and attention to detail.

Chris concluded: “We very much enjoyed speaking to visitors about what makes us different and the value we can bring as a supply partner. It was a great event that has more than delivered on expectations for us. Having such a successful inaugural show for Fentrade with a strong return on investment, we had no hesitation in signing up for FIT 2023.”
