It is becoming even more applicable, that the response AESIF is having from within the suppliers of entrance systems, that the organisation of an independent body who supports it’s members directly, and also from within the development of product availability, that I have written this short editorial.

With my two directors from Heritage LDK Ltd, we have had several dealings with Videx and their products, without question any back up support from the Videx technical guys has been A1. Recently we have worked with their area sales rep who gave up his time out of work hours to assist us in exacting our client’s requirements. Steve’s out of hours hard work is very much in the AESIF vain, by which I mean that not all contacts can be adhered to within the normal working hours, yet the necessity of immediate communication can ease any query.

We all know we can get tied up with work leaving little time to extract all the info on up and coming products form the national supplier’s. However the AESIF web site is a brilliant way for the suppliers to have an editorial viewed by qualified, competent installers.

Recently AESIF has been asked to offer our wears along with the Nice UK road show’s, a great offer which has proved very fruitful for AESIF membership, yet what must not be forgotten is the support and behind the scenes work from all of our industries suppliers who support AESIF, and to those who are sitting on the fence, "isn’t it time we sang from the same song sheet" the feeling is a definite YES!!!

Videx do full training courses for those of you that are interested in professional product installation, and in promoting safety with AESIF.
