The FIT SHOW 2017

Posted on: June 23rd, 2017 by Made For Trade

Korniche has the Wow Factor at FIT Show

This years Fit Show was a resounding success for Made for Trade and the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern. The intention, to underpin and confirm to visitors the Korniche advertised claims: Faster, Stronger, Warmer and Slimmer.

We achieved this by showcasing the build of a 1.5 x 1m Lantern with three demonstrations a day. These demo’s literally stopped people in the aisles, amazed at the speed and ease of installing the Korniche.

Bigger and better

Confidence in the Korniche encouraged Made for Trade to invest in a much larger space with a constructed stand for FIT Show 2017. Supporting a 5 x 3.5m overhead lantern. Two vertically mounted lanterns in black and Korniche red the stand perfectly presented the quality and finish of the fully thermally broken aluminium lantern.

Korniche creates a buzz
Visitor comments such as ‘the best Lantern at the show’ and ‘best product here’ confirmed our belief in the design and integrity of the Korniche.
Overall impression and feedback from visitors and installers was about how competitive the Korniche is against other suppliers. The quick 5 day turnaround on delivery from order and crucially just how efficient and quick the Korniche is to install.

It’s safe to say the FIT Show has provided us with a great deal of information and insight that helps to develop the Korniche Roof Lantern even further. New additions are in the pipeline to enhance the product, the development of which will take on board client feedback and information from the show to ensure the Korniche remains the market leading Aluminium Lantern product.

Made for Trade’s aim is to continually develop the Korniche with the needs of the installers in mind. Impressive sleek, slimline aesthetics and great looks, supported by the Made for Trade marketing and customer service team delivers a product that customers want in their homes and is efficient and easy to install on-site.

New Business Manager Joins MFT

Posted on: June 12th, 2017 by Made For Trade

Chris WannMade For Trade has recently welcomed Chris Wann to the company as he joins the leading fabricator as Business Manager.

A Mechanical Engineer by trade, Chris started off in industrial design and has spent the last 5 years working in senior commercial roles within the subsea energy and process equipment sectors.

Chris will be involved in all aspects of the rapidly expanding business, sharing some of the management responsibilities with Managing Director Bradley Gaunt and helping to develop business strategy and support the growth of the bi-folding door, lantern roof and conservatory roof manufacturer.

“Since my first introduction to Made For Trade I could see that the ethos of the business and the drive to move forward is present across all departments,” said Chris. “It’s clear that they have really concentrated on development over recent years to keep at the forefront of manufacturing and I am very much looking forward to becoming part of the team and helping shape the company’s future. “

Bradley explained: “We are continuing to invest strongly in our facilities, equipment and staff during 2017 and the appointment of Chris as Business Manager ensures that the management team is reinforced to support the continued growth.“

He continued: “Chris’s experience across the engineering and manufacturing industry fits in well with the company’s future plans and complements the development work we have been putting into our new in-house design and engineered Korniche aluminium lantern roof.”

The Korniche features parts that click or fix together seamlessly, with no trimming or cutting of any profile required on site, allowing for a super-fast installation. Made For Trade recently built a 3m x 1.5m Korniche lantern in under 30 minutes with very few tools required.

In addition, all fixings are hidden and the slim unbroken sightlines allow for sleek, contemporary aesthetics. The lantern is fully thermally broken to give the lowest U-values and also features an innovative secure all-in-one glazing lock and retainer.

Chris said: “I am really very impressed with what has been achieved by Bradley and his team with the design of their lantern roof and even more so by the time frame in which they have achieved a production-ready system.”

He added: “The sheer amount of work required in a new product design, analysis, development, and testing is not to be underestimated. When you add to that the process engineering of the factory, set up of a supporting supply chain capable of the required levels of precision, branding, ironing out the initial snags and all those unseen little touches which make a product complete – all in less than 24 months is nothing short of astonishing.”

Made For Trade, who supply the Visofold 1000 aluminium bi-folding door and Global conservatory roof as well as their Korniche lantern roof, have seen a huge increase in demand in recent years.

The business is now spread over three sites in Teesside and employ over 80 staff. Last year also saw more CNC machines and delivery vehicles being added to improve efficiency and keep up with demand.
