Edgetech’s latest sales figures show market demand for Spacer Spacer, the leading warm edge technology, continued to grow in 2006 with sales up 68% year-on-year. Sales for 2007 are forecast to increase by a further 55%, continuing the upward trend. Andy Ball, Marketing & Business Development Manager, comments on these latest strong results: “2006 was a fantastic year for Edgetech and our customers as the industry’s drive for superior performance energy efficient products gathered momentum. Market enthusiasm for the Window Energy Ratings resulted in fourteen automated Super Spacer application IG lines sold or installed in the UK over the last 12 months bringing the total number to 23 vertical lines. This amounts to over £7 million investment by Edgetech’s customers in the UK last year, and will ensure that forward thinking sealed unit manufacturers, fabricators and installers are well placed to stay ahead of the anticipated demand by home owners for WER windows. Edgetech has experienced a remarkable 400% growth in the UK and Ireland since 2004 demonstrating that the window industry is embracing warm edge technology.”
