WADIC 2017 Expo in Melbourne it’s a first for WADIC
WHAT IS the recipe for a successful event for both manufacturers and suppliers? WADIC (Window and Door Industry Council) believes the upcoming Expo in Melbourne has the right ingredients this time!
WADIC supplier members are really getting behind and supporting this new initiative WADIC 2017 Expo to exclusively exhibit their products to an audience made up of timber window and door manufacturers who are engaged in the high end timber market. Manufacturing members are already booking their tickets to travel and spend a weekend in Melbourne from as far away as Cairns and across the water from Tasmania.
On this occasion WADIC has, as a first, extended this invitation to those timber window and door manufacturers who are presently not members allowing two representatives per company to attend the Expo and exhibitors stands, to hear the industry speakers and share a beer with colleagues and suppliers for a small charge of $50 for two. WADIC members are invited to attend free. RSVP is crucial as numbers are filling fast.
The latest in machinery will be showcased by BIESSE, Felder and Weinig by video and company representatives. Hardware suppliers Brio, Centor, FSA and others will bring their technical experts and products along. Representatives from Tecknos will have their specialists in attendance to talk about the latest coatings.
The WADIC group of timber suppliers John Cook & Sons, Britton Timbers, Mathews Timber and Bayswood will have their timber listings ready to write some orders. Breezway, Schlegel and Aneeta will also be there to discuss the latest in seals, louvres and sashless windows.
Cabinet Makers Insurance (Sears) are great supporters of WADIC members when it comes to insurance and our alliance with TABMA and their Group Training arm assists in recruiting apprentices for the WADIC fraternity. These stands will be well worth a visit. Hopefully you may be able to save some money on your insurance or at least be better informed as to how best to insure your company and through TABMA find an apprentice. That alone would be worth a visit.
Who is WADIC, for those of you who do not know us? WADIC is a national organisation that was established in the year 2000 and is a not-for-profit organisation designed to work with colleagues to support small to medium timber window and door manufacturers to be cost effectively compliant with industry standards and works to support its members with product and industry information. Besides the relevant Standards WADIC also has a program which licenses members to be Bushfire Fabricators to Bushfire Attack Level 29 out of Western Red Cedar having tested a complete houselot of windows and doors with Exova WarringtonFire to AS1530 8.1 for WADIC.
At present WADIC is involved in an R& D program to test bifold doors for cyclonic areas to C3. This initiative when successful will position WADIC members to supply tested timber bifold door systems for cyclonic application through the WADIC Compliance Manual License program for AS2047. The WADIC Compliance Manual comes with a comprehensive list of custom rated thermal ratings.
