After a brilliant week at JEC World 2016 in Paris, the Scott & Fyfe team are now back in the office and carrying on with conversations started at the show. Held in the new exhibition centre, Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, the general feeling was that this venue suited the increasing scale of the show perfectly and provided a great platform for exhibitors to showcase to the high number of professionals in attendance.
For Scott & Fyfe there was a real buzz at the show and this was reflected in the results. We received enquiries from over 30 different countries which combined amount to over £20 million of opportunities, a resounding success for Scott & Fyfe.
The new product ranges added in the past year played a key role in the success attracting both existing and new contacts. This really is a testament to the market-focussed approach undertaken by the company to ensure that the products introduced suit the market requirements perfectly. Examples of this include:
Polymat FR, the glass reinforcement material designed to meet the EN 45545-2 standard within the rail industry generated a strong interest. This is an all glass fabric with a highly engineered knitted glass core sandwiched between two layers of chopped strand mat.
Polyform NCF, the range of multiaxial glass reinforcement materials which are designed to provide strength, drape and resin flow (permeability) in the configuration required for key markets such as wind energy, marine and automotive industry were also well received.
Polyform CSM, our leading brand of CSM which is available in both emulsion and powder versions.
Polyrov, a proven range of direct and multi-end rovings produced from E-CR glass that are well suited to processes such as pultrusion and spray-up methods.
We would like to thank everyone we met at the show. It was great meeting up with so many existing customers, partners and suppliers whilst there and it was brilliant to meet so many new faces. It will definitely be an exciting (and busy) few months continuing these conversations and, of course, if you did not get a chance to meet us at the show then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
