For the past few months there has been one favoured topic of conversation as everyone eagerly awaited the arrival of the Fabricators Installers Trade Show. With all eyes in the industry watching the FIT Show to see if the years of hard work and hundreds of thousands of pounds spent were worth it, there was a lot of pressure on the organisers. However I think everyone will agree it was a fantastic show.

We enjoyed great success with an almost consistently packed stand with visitors coming to see all of our new products, indulge in cupcakes and have a bit of fun with a game of Table Football against Leeds Legends Norman Hunter and Paul Reaney and our very own Maxettes.

There was a definite buzz about the place, and it was great to catch up with customers old and new. It was also really nice to see everyone getting involved in a little friendly competition on the Football Table and stop for a photo with Norman and Paul.

Our brand mascot Max received a fantastic reception from visitors and exhibitors alike who were all happy to stop and strike a pose for the camera with him. UAPs National Sales Manager, Dee Chamberlain, says “Max proved to be very popular with everyone, he was great for pulling people onto our stand. If any customers would like to take advantage of Max’s pulling power we can bring him down to trade counters for the day to help them promote MAX6MUM SECURITY.”


We headed down to the FIT Show with quite a few new products to show to our customers, but our stunning new i-Plate was the showstopper. The revolutionary letterplate has a frameless design and corrosion proof construction. With a unique soft close feature and moulded in rubber brushes the i-Plate sets its self apart from anything else on the market.


Once on our stand visitors were given the tour of everything that we have to offer, one of the highlights being our 3 ways to 3 stars. Guests received a preview of our soon to be released 3 Star Kinetica Super Cylinder and our 2 Star MAX6MUM SECURITY Cylinder Guard.

Several people stopped to admire our colourful fish tank which was demonstrating just how tough our Nanocoast® range is. Our new Nanocoast door handles also went down a storm with their Free Lifetime Guarantee.

UAP’s Managing Director David Jennings said: “We were really impressed with the FIT Show and were happy with all of the comments we received from visitors. People were really interested in our new ranges and were particularly keen on our new MAX6MUM SECURITY app which will be ready for release soon.

“Our aim for the FIT Show was to use it as a platform to meet with current customers and new customers, and to provide them with somewhere to go to take a break, relax and have a bit of fun. It also gave us a chance to introduce people to our new Sales Team. I’d like to thank everyone who came to our stand for the warm welcome we received and for playing along with us.”
