Published on 31 August, 2022Latest News
UAP, the specialist in locks and hardware for doors and windows, will be exhibiting at GlassBuild America for the first time as the company prepares for potential growth across the Atlantic.
Taking place in Las Vegas from 18 – 20 October 2022, GlassBuild America is the largest trade and networking event for the entire glass, window, and door industry in the western hemisphere.
UAP will be showcasing its core range of door hardware at the event, including locks and cylinders, letterplates, handles, numerals and viewers.
Barry Halpin, national sales director for UAP, said: “UAP has ambitious growth plans both within the UK and overseas. Exhibiting at GlassBuild America is a chance for us to learn more about entering the US market and will enable us to identify key trends, opportunities, and challenges.
“The event also provides an ideal platform for us to demonstrate the breadth and quality of our range. We’re hoping to speak with potential distributors to explore how we could work together and what UAP products could meet the needs of their customers now and in the future.”
With established manufacturing partnerships with quality-controlled factories in China, UAP already has the capability to produce products for different markets and export internationally.
Continued Barry: “We hope to use the insights from the show to establish a long-term strategy, including whether we need to adapt our current products or launch new ones specifically for the US market.
“It’s an exciting time for our business and we’re looking forward to beginning a journey that could, for the first time, see UAP have a strong presence in North America.”
More than 8,000 people are expected to attend the three-day event along with over 400 exhibitors.
UAP will be located at stand 9024 in the ‘British Pavilion’, an area which is being promoted and organised by the People in Glazing Society (PiGs).
