Success at BAU for Alutech Systems

Alutech Systems Ltd started the New Year as they mean to go on, kicking things off in January with a successful week in Munich. The UK operations of the Alutech Group exhibited for a second time at BAU 2019 – the World’s Leading Trade Fair of architectural solutions, construction systems and building materials. The aluminium profile systems supplier welcomed a party of 30 guests from 10 of its trusted fabricators in the UK to the Alutech Group stand C1.220 (hall C1, stand 220).

BAU 2019 registered record figures. The biannual event was attended by over 250,000 visitors from over 150 countries, with almost 2,300 exhibitors. As one of the largest aluminium extruders in the world, Alutech Group used the exhibition as a platform to launch a number of new products for both commercial and residential markets, giving the UK fabricators who visited a first chance to see them before they hit UK markets.

Visitors also had the opportunity to meet key members of the Alutech Group, whose 35,000 sqm manufacturing facility is based in Minsk, Belarus. Group Director General, Mr. Zhukov, and Export Director, Yury Sorokin, were on hand to talk to the UK guests hosted by Alutech Systems’ MD, Steve Hudson and Commercial Manager, Harry Walker.

Visitors commented on the well-presented 126 sqm stand that showcased a full range of aluminium profile systems and solutions as 29 full-sized profile structures integrated in 4 large modules and 10 smaller modules. A large panoramic graphic of the impressive city skyline of the Belarusian capital of Minsk provided the backdrop to the stand, with particular emphasis on key engineering projects built using Alutech profile.

Attendees were particularly impressed that the stand was always well-staffed to accommodate each visitors’ requirements, even at the busiest times when there was in excess of 40 people on the stand at any one time. To fabricators of residential products, Alutech’s BF73 Bi-folding Door and SL160 Lift and Slide Door systems proved very popular. For commercial fabricators it was the W72 and W62 window systems and F50 curtain walling solution products that feature a 3-metre high parallel opener, which gained a lot of attention.

Alutech Systems MD, Steve Hudson, commented, “We were delighted with the turnout of UK visitors and would like to thank all those who made the trip to see us at BAU 2019. For those fabricators who weren’t able to attend, we would like to invite them to visit us on stand F2 at the FIT show on 21st to 23rd May this year and also to our open day later in the Spring.”

In 2018, Alutech Systems’ UK sales grew in excess of 25% on average month-on-month. The range consists of Aluminium profile systems for windows, doors, façade systems, louvre & brise soleil and internal partitioning, with dual colour profile delivered in just one week.
