Posted on: November 6th, 2017 by Made For Trade

Our Managing Director Brad and Business Manager Chris are with Keylite this week on Stand R140 at Batimat, Paris –  the building industries leading international trade show with the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern. Taking the lantern to the international stage with Keylite is a fantastic opportunity for Made for Trade and continuing what has become a very successful year for the Korniche, surpassing all expectations in it’s first full year of fabrication.

Due to the engineering and precision of the design, simplicity and ease of installation we believe the Korniche is perfectly suited to the international market. The product can be delivered in kit form for transportation and export markets.

Chris and Brad are on hand at the exhibition for two days assisting with demonstrations, building the Korniche on stand to impress how efficient it is to install the Korniche.
