Set up in 2010 to supply the trade with Schüco aluminium bi-folds, Glide Sliding Doors and Dutemänn Haus residential doors Dartford, Kent based Dutemänn has enjoyed remarkable growth ever since, now producing the equivalent of more than 200 three-panel bi-folding doors every month.
Taking a leap of faith with its first ever exhibition stand at the inaugural FIT Show in April 2013, so successful was the event for Dutemänn the company returned the following year with a stand double the size and has now doubled that to 48 metres for 2016.
With the addition of Dutemänn Glide-S large panel sliding doors for 2016 the company needs the space to show the burgeoning range of folding, sliding and residential doors, but it would not be sizing up if previous appearances had not been so successful, says MD Martin James: “We have enjoyed tremendous success and our appearances at The FIT Show have played an important part in that,” he explained. “The emphasis at Dutemänn is on the highest quality for products that are in demand from discerning customers. It has been clear from our appearances at each event that there is a high demand from visitors looking for products that satisfy this end of the market, something out of the mass of standard bi-folds and sliding doors.
“Our doubled-again stand for 2016 is necessary to show our products properly,” explained Martin,” “especially the new Dutemänn Glide-S sliding doors, which are capable of spanning an aperture of 6.7m wide by 3.2m in height in just two panels. They look incredible when installed.”
Dutemänn can be found on Stand 120 at The Fabricator Installer Trade (FIT) Show when it takes place next year at The International Centre Telford on the 12th, 13th and 14th April 2016. Although more than 80% of the enlarged exhibition space has been sold, some excellent stands are still available but continuing to sell fast.
