Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

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.
