At a time when many companies continue to tread cautiously, Aberdeen-based International Doors and Windows has marked a strong trading period by exhibiting for the very first time at the Scottish Home Show. The company teamed up with its composite door supplier Hurst Plastics to deliver a smash-hit success at the show.
“Aberdeen’s economy is booming!” says Scott Paterson, Director at International Doors and Windows. “As the oil capital of Europe, there is plenty of growth in the building sector here and our business has been able to capitalise on this huge potential. This was the first time we have exhibited at the show, which is the largest of its kind in the North East of Scotland. Judging from the number of visitors to the stand and the amount of leads we are following up, we will definitely be booking space again!”
Crowds were attracted to the wealth of products on the stand, which included the composite door from trade partner Hurst Plastics. Hurst even developed a bespoke dual colour composite door for the show, which featured Golden Oak to one side and a novel Walnut finish on the other.
Nick Harrison, Commercial Sales Manager at Hurst, explained: “We have enjoyed a strong alliance with International for more than two years now so we were naturally delighted to support them at this major show. Our composite door has proved popular in the region because it offers the highest levels of performance and durability in a temperate climate. Visitors were really enthusiastic about this exclusive new walnut finish, which we created especially for International.”
The roller shutter door from Hurst is the latest product to join the expanding collection at International Doors and Windows. The door, which is manufactured from solid aluminium and insulated with a foam core, is available in a wide range of colours and wood finishes, to match any Hurst composite door for a co-ordinated look.
