Since the beginning of the year local aluminium and glass converters have begun doing business a little differently with the advent of South Africa’s first one-stop-shop glazing and aluminium supply company, which sells everything from adhesives to tools and machines under one roof.

FG Trading in Edenvale has begun establishing a national footprint, offering customers a comprehensive range of top quality products backed by professional consulting services to ensure the correct and successful use of the company’s highly rated products. Brands include Tremco Illbruck, Edgetech, TruSeal and AlcoPanel, which are synonymous with glaziers and facade engineers worldwide.

As a specialist trading business the company has sourced best-of-breed supplies from across the world and stocks a wide variety of products for its growing customer base. It also has access to agencies around the world that can supply almost any requirement to the local trade within days.

The current sales programme includes glass- and building-related sealants, tapes and adhesives, glazing products and fittings, cladding panels, aluminium products and fittings, tools, equipment and machinery.

The company also offers start-up advice for newcomers to the industry and consulting services to support glass converters, architects and contractors with facade and fenestration requirements for ongoing or individual projects.

Glass Expo
FG Trading will showcase its wide product offering at Glass Expo Africa 2012, which will be held at Nasrec on 15-18 August this year. The hi-tech stand will feature examples of products and give practical advice on how the products are used within the industry.

International representatives will also be on hand to discuss the requirements of locals and where possible provide them with workable solutions to their aluminium and glass-converting requirements.  

“We invite all those involved in the aluminium and fenestration business to spend time with our overseas experts to discuss international techniques and find ways of optimising local operations,” says managing director of FG Trading, Stuart Fraser.
