REHAU staged two seminars in Dublin and Cork recently as it took to the road to reaffirm its commitment to the Irish market.
The company, which is the leading systems brand in Ireland, hosted seminars to showcase both its 60mm and 70mm product ranges and to give fabricators and installers useful, practical advice on both WERs and CE Marking.
More than 30 fabricators and installers attended the event in Dublin, with a mix of existing and potential customers coming along to meet with REHAU’s sales, product development and technical services teams.
At Cork, there were 25 existing and potential customers, all of whom took the opportunity to see demonstrations of the new REHAU CE Marking tool on the website at www.rehauanswers.com ahead of the deadline for CE marking on 1 July.
Among the customers attending in Cork was long established trade fabricator Jim O’Mahoney of Kratos Windows who said: “The seminar was a great opportunity to see some of the new REHAU products which I hadn’t seen before and to meet some new faces. It was good to see REHAU doing something new in Ireland and it was certainly a worthwhile investment of a day’s time.”
Darragh Kane, director of DK Windows and Doors who went to the Dublin event was equally enthusiastic: “I have been buying REHAU profiles for several years and am a loyal customer. What this event helped to do was reinforce to me the fact that I am buying the right profiles and that I have chosen the right partner for my business.”
Chris Tudgay, Business Team Manager at REHAU Window Division who presented REHAU’s product range at the seminars, said: “When we first took our seminars out on the road at the end of last year, we received a really positive response from customers across the UK. We wanted to share that with our customers in Ireland as well and to give them the chance to find out a bit more about the technical, product and sales support services REHAU offers.
“Both Declan Coulter and Nicola Kane from our Dublin sales office were on hand to meet with customers, put fabricators and installers in touch with one another and talk about how they can best use REHAU to exploit new opportunities as the market in Ireland starts to recover.”
