Sliding Systems Engineers at FDIC, Indy.
Sliding Systems engineers have returned from a very successful week in Indianapolis and the FDIC fire show.
Both customers and suppliers, old and new, were pleased to see us and laid out the usual hospitable welcome. FDIC is the spiritual home of the US fire market and 30,000+ firefighters descending on the city is a sight to see!
We saw our slide & tilts in action and were able to add our new 8027 aluminium aircraft grade 700Ib slide to the trucks. These were received very well as the demand for lightweight, non corrosive products is strong in this market.
The most pleasurable part of the week was securing three new key product lines for our European sales platform. We will announce these separately in due course, however these will strengthen our position for military racking slides, expand our professional tool mounts range and allow us to offer complete drop in under-mount carriers. We are excited at the new developments and being able to have closer ties with the USA.
