Made for Trade launches a Korniche Flat Rooflight System at the FIT show
The FIT Show has truly become a staple hub for the fenestration industry over the last decade, and 2023 brought about not only the same huge exhibition space packed full of notable systems and key businesses, but also some exciting new product launches in front of the packed crowd. Of particular interest this time was North East-based manufacturer Made for Trade, who revealed the third aluminium system in the Korniche product line.
This year’s event was the third time that the Wynyard-based company has chosen the bi-annual Birmingham exhibition for a product launch. The item in question this time was the Korniche Flat Rooflight, which takes the high quality and ease and speed of fitment of the other products in the range, and applied them to a flat glass system. The new system is designed with the idea of ‘Fit, Glaze & Go!’ in mind. Like other products in the range, this system focuses on thermal efficiency too. ‘Innovate, don’t Imitate’ has always been a mantra of the Korniche design team.
Made for Trade’s stand build at the FIT Show this year framed the new and existing products and ensured that all three days at Birmingham made the most of that industry buzz, and the ability to showcase demonstrations to attendees. The team on hand were able to catch up with old industry friends as well as meet new trade partners keen to delight customers and increase their product margin through ease of fitting.
Joining the team on the stand on Wednesday was Korniche and Made for Trade Brand Ambassador Mark Millar; a name and face widely known not just in the industry but to the UK public, thanks to his appearance on a number of home improvement television programs. Wednesday’s activities saw him get hands-on with attendees on the MfT stand; showcasing the patented BiFold Clip Bead system to interested visitors, and as part of the Korniche Roof Lantern live build.
Speaking of the event, Made for Trade’s Managing Director Bradley Gaunt said; “We were delighted to be back at the FIT Show in 2023, which remains to be the number one event for our industry. Following on from the previous two product launches here in previous years, the reception we saw to the launch of the new Korniche Flat Rooflight system in 2023 continued to cement FIT as the number one place to showcase our future fenestration innovations.”
