Indian expedition finds huge opportunities for warm edge experts Edgetech

Zak Doors and Windows Expo

Warm edge pioneers Edgetech capped off a momentous year of milestones and international exhibition appearances by showcasing at India’s biggest fenestration event.

The fifteenth Zak Doors and Windows Expo came to Mumbai’s MMRDA Exhibition Centre in December, bringing together glazing experts from all around the world to discuss the future of fenestration, and see the latest products taking the sector by storm.

The gathering took place as India’s construction industry gears up for what looks set to be a historic boom, fuelled by extensive state investment.

Hundreds of thousands of homes are scheduled to be built in the next few years as part of the government’s Housing for All by 2022 initiative, with the Indian economy set to almost double in size in that time.

What’s more, ongoing trends away from traditional wooden windows and towards more modern uPVC and aluminium alternatives present huge opportunities for component suppliers, as Edgetech MD Chris Alderson explains.

“It was fantastic to take part in Zak Doors and Windows. There’s a real sense that Indian fenestration is on the cusp of something huge, and as both government and consumers increasingly turn towards high-performance IGUs, we saw enormous interest in the benefits that Super Spacer can provide.

“It’s often suggested that in developing economies like India and China, companies could skip a whole step in the traditional evolution of manufacturing and jump straight from making window units by hand to full automation. Given the unparalleled efficiency of our Super Spacer automated lines, that’s another factor generating interest in Edgetech and our product range.

“It was great to meet manufacturers and others from all around the world, and we’re confident we were able to lay the foundations of what will become close, long-lasting partnerships in years to come.”
