ForgeFix hosts 24-hour customer events

Published:  15 July, 2016

ForgeFix has staged two 24-hour customer events: dubbed ’24 hours with ForgeFix’, the events enabled stockists of ForgeFix products to learn more about the company’s offerings before being able to network in the evening.

The first 24 hours with ForgeFix event took place at Shrigley Hall Hotel & Spa in Pott Shrigley, near Macclesfield. The second was staged at De Vere Wokefield Park in Mortimer near Reading.

At both events, presentations were given by a number of key ForgeFix personnel including company managing director, Michael Brown. Mr Brown outlined how ForgeFix recognises the instrumental role stockists play in the company’s success and how, as a result, the business believes in a true partnership approach.

He also discussed ForgeFix’s access to over 3000 products lines for next day delivery as well as 97% stock availability thanks to the business’ two warehouses which provide over 70,000sq ft of stockholding space.

Tony Armitt, purchasing manager, spoke to guests about the continued evolution of woodscrews before officially launching ForgeFix’s new and next generation ForgeFast elite performance woodscrews.

Feedback from ForgeFix customers who attended the event has been exceptional. One of those customers, Andy Martin, managing director at Teknofix, said: “24 hours with ForgeFix proved to be both enjoyable and rewarding with the friendliness and professionalism of the ForgeFix team evident throughout. It was an ideal way to learn more about the company’s developments in a relaxed and informal way.”

Mr Brown said: “Our 24 hours with ForgeFix events served as a no obligation way for customers to learn more about our latest offer while putting faces to the names of many members of our team. We plan on staging additional events for more customers in the near future.”
