Selecta Systems head to the FIT Show, ready to celebrate their 40th year in business! Sales Director, Andy Green, talks about why it is important to celebrate this momentous milestone and having a presence at FIT Show 2022.
“Reaching forty years in our industry is an excellent achievement in itself, when you consider the number of companies that have been and gone over the years – especially profile systems companies. What is even more unique is that Selecta have continued to remain independently owned by the same family who started the business way back in 1982.”
Andy continues, “There is an enormous sense of pride within the business, in reaching the big 4-0, with success built on a number of simplistic principles and beliefs. Flexibility, personal customer care, service and support combined with fabricator friendly profile systems, continue to be key aspects of the Selecta ethos and values that are firmly rooted within the business. With that in mind, we believe that being at the FIT Show 2022, provides ourselves with the perfect platform to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our customers, industry friends and colleagues.”
Having exhibited at every previous FIT Show and Glassex beforehand, Selecta have been a stalwart in supporting industry specific events. So, what can visitors expect to see from Selecta at this years event?
A relaxed Andy explains, “Exhibitions are generally seen as an opportunity to sell, sell, sell. Everything pointing towards seeing that return on investment by promoting that new product or service. For Selecta, it’s going to be nice to go in to a show where we can be purely there to celebrate and say thank you.”
“Behind the scenes, there have been a number of large investments in our infrastructure and logistics. This has included new upgraded plant and machinery, extrusion machines, material storage silos, HGV delivery vehicles, profile foiling machines, staff recruitment and business restructuring. We also have a host of new customer support mechanisms and initiatives coming your way with two brand new websites, one consumer based to generate sales leads for customers. There’s a big update of our Connect customer support portal, but on the back of two challenging, yet successful years, we’ve seen FIT Show 2022 as the perfect platform to just celebrate and say thank you, with so many people being able to be in one place.”
“FIT Show 2022 will be all about celebrating being 40! It’s an occasion where we can thank everyone who has been part of and continues to be part of the Selecta success story. Our stand will solely be a hospitality area, with a bar serving drinks to everyone who is, may become or has been #partofthefamily and wishes to celebrate our 40th with us! There will be no hard sell and no big product samples on show. We’re there, simply to say thank you and celebrate our success.” says Andy.
“The late-night Wednesday opening, also provides us with the extra opportunity to pop on a bit of music, have a piece of cake and a celebratory drink in a relaxed environment. Over the course of the three days, there will also be an opportunity to win a fantastic prize on our stand too!” Andy concludes, “We’re extremely proud to reach the milestone of being able to celebrate our 40th anniversary and welcome you to our stand, K60, at the FIT Show on May 10 – 12th to have a celebratory drink with us. No hard sell. Just a big thank you to everyone who is, may become or has been #partofthefamily”
