Successful day at the TROY means business Show 2018
We exhibited at the annual Troy means business show on the 18th October 2018 at Silverstone Racing Circuit. It was the first year where TROY and THS members have merged therefore the show was a lot buiser than usual. We had a wide range of ladders from Hop-ups to Combination ladders on display.
It was great to meet so many new and old members and speak to all of our customers about all of the new and exciting products and stndards that are due to be released.
Successful Weekend at the Screwfix Show
We have recently returned from a succesful Screwfix show at the newly built Farnborough Exhibition Centre. It was a three day show starting on the Friday and finishing on the Sunday. We had our new extension ladders on display that have been tested and certified to the new EN131 standard which produced a great response from not only end users but other suppliers at the show. Demonstrations were taking place throughout the day where our team were pointing out the differences between the new and old standards and what additions have been made to the range ti make them comply.
Our standard Aluminium Folding Tower was also on display which drew quite a crowd and was clear to see that this is a much needed product in the Screwfix collection.
The show proved very beneficial to us as an organisation as we had gained lots of feedback from the end users on the new range of EN131 ladders which always proves vital to ensure that we keep up to date with what the customers want and brings ideas for new products. It was also good for the end users to speak directly to the manufacturers and ask certain questions that only we would be able to answer.

Successful Cologne Trade Fair for Lyte
Lyte Travelled to Cologne for setup on the 3rd March then went straight in to the 4 day exhbition where we exhibited a wide range of our products from the new Stairlyte tower to our ever popular Glass fibre widesteps. As a whole, the show proved rather succesful with interest coming from all over the world with potential buyers from Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Norway and many more.
The fair was not only good for meeting new customers but to also meet potential new suppliers to help strengthen our offering within the access industry. Whilst the team were out there, they took the opportunity to look around the stands of other access suppliers and manufacturers to make sure that Lyte are up to date with the latest standards and products that are currently being sold within the industry.

Exhibition Season has begun
It has been a busy start to 2017 here at Lyte. We attended two of our biggest trade shows of the year. First up was the annual 'Executive Hire' Show at the Ricoh Arena on the 8th & 9th Feb. It was a new stand concept for this year in the way of placing products in their normal surroundings therefore our stand portrayed a shop fitting environment. This was a very succesful show where we also launched the new LytePod podium and also the stairwell tower. We had lots of positive comments on boht the products and the stand.
The second of our shows was the Totally Tools exhibition, again in th Ricoh Arena on the 14th & 15th Feb. It was a quick turnaround from one show to another but with very different show profiles with the main visotrs for this type of show predominantly being independent retailers. The stand concept for this exhibiton was similar with a house theme but obviously targetting a different type of market. There was a steady influx of visitors arriving onto the stand and a few new customers were gained.
Our next exhibitons will be the 'NMBS' show at the Ricoh Arena on the 5th April quickly followed by the 'TROY means business' show at Silverstone on the 27th April.

Lyte was highly recommended for Business of the year
Lyte had been shortlisted for Business of the year (250 or more employees) in the Swansea Bay Business awards 2017. A few members of staff attended the awards ceremony at the Brangwyn Hall on 3rd March. Sadly Lyte did not win but was narrowly beaten by LBS Builders Merchants. It was a privilege to even make it to the top four and to be named along side some well respected and run organisations was an achievement in itself.
