A Humbling Expo Experience

A Humbling Expo Experience

 

If ECMIL’s participation in the recent Specialty Caribbean Expo 17, in St Lucia,
taught us anything, it was that the company and product messages
were extremely well received and completely on point.


Deciding what the content says, within this publication, is no random choice.

Company and product information is interwoven to allow readers to be entertained, while becoming better informed. That is all at a distance. So when confronted with the recent interactive trade show experience, it was like no other.

Face to face, the learning curve and interaction is always intense. The vibrance of questions, responses and reactions
were palpable.  For one real moment, the tables were turned!

Of course, when you have reliable, tried and tested products to discuss, the conversations seem to last...well, till the next one! The depth of discourse and visible decision making on the part of potential customers was remarkable.

Most heartwarming for me, was the diversity of visitors, from corporate and supplier interests, engineers and architects, to intended spouses as first time builders and older home owners looking for replacements, upgrades and better ways of doing things.

These are the body of ECMIL’s clients, but this time, up close and personal, and to all accounts delighted to see first hand what they wanted, or had already received.

ECMIL’s regional energy has been built by the diversity of these customers. From simple requests, to the demand for challenging solutions, the company and its products have satisfied its audience and yet continued to keep the offer fresh and in tune with changing technology and styles.

If St. Lucia’s show is the litmus test for a typical response to high quality roofing and steel fabrication, then the future expectations of the region appear to be, to embrace international standards of manufacture for the construction industry. This places ECMIL, front and centre in the customer understanding and demand for durability and style at a fair regional price.

The company is fully committed to a steady evolution in styling, having recently added Woodland Grey, as its 13th Colorbond® colour, with incredible customer response before, during and after the show. Two more additions are lightly, as the year progresses.

With the greatest of reception, comes even greater responsibility to deliver a well informed service, always willing to move the customer’s project forward, in the company’s roll as materials specialist and manufacturer.
There lies ECMIL’s continued commitment.

As a seasoned campaigner, the company joined so many enterprises, big and small under one roof again, after such a lull in regional activity. It was genuinely refreshing to witness this initiative. As our nations become more conversant with our vibrant and growing business sector and buy regional, so we will flourish.

To those who visited with us at the show and engaged us as interested customers, we are grateful for your patronage and hope that we can work together soon.

For all those who simply showed interest, we say thanks for the opportunity to tell the ECMIL story.
Ours was an uplifting and humbling experience.

Steel lies at the heart of the Caribbean’s now and future development.
So if you missed us at the show, get in touch and connect with the ECMIL experience!

ECMIL at Specialty Caribbean Expo St. Lucia

ECMIL at Specialty Caribbean Expo, St. Lucia

 

We are pleased to announce that ECMIL will be participating in
The Specialty Caribbean Expo,
to be held at the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground Beausejour, St. Lucia
from the 9 to 12 March 2017
A St. Lucia Trade Export Promotion Agency initiative.


In the Caribbean of yesteryear, we would eagerly await the next trade show to review business activities in other islands. It was always a pleasure to witness the region’s latest and greatest under one roof and regardless of actual sales, we felt that we were participating in the ‘now’; present at a new reference point, with a new shot of adrenaline to renew our spirits.

Sadly, years have been devoid of these important events, as communication has distilled to the internet, international sponsorship has shifted its focus and regional business travel has contracted due to increased cost and reduced airline reliability.

So saying, all is by no means lost!
For those who yearn for actual human contact, I am pleased to announce that during the 9 - 12 of March the St. Lucia Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA) is hosting the Specialty Caribbean Expo which is A one-of-a-kind opportunity for OECS and Martinique goods and services producers to interact with participants, stakeholders, policy makers, customers and buyers".

It is a timely and well needed exposé, to be held at the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground, Beausejour, incidentally, following
St. Lucia’s recent independence celebrations.  It emphasizes the Government’s fresh policies and attitudes to drive industry, investment and involvement. To be sure, our economies have suffered without this focus over the last decade.

As with the landmark FIHAV Havana International Fair, Cuba last year, ECMIL will be taking part in this significant
St. Lucian show. At their prominent booth, you will be able to review roofing materials, colours and profiles, corporate and product videos, receive expert advice on the important role that steel plays in your next construction project and meet with company representatives, as a first step in your purchasing process, or to touch base for future business.

Whether you are a construction professional or a DIY expert,
this is a great opportunity to accumulate valuable information from steel experts.

ECMIL is no newcomer to regional shows as any visitor to their booth would attest. The company stakes its reputation on quality products, service and delivery, with solution- based customer relations at the core of their sales.  Their display is designed to show the often unseen workings of ECMIL’s steel factory in St. Vincent, in combination with images of the finished product in infinite permutations.

The company's considerable regional experience in both commercial and private sector roofing and fabrication manufacture and supply, makes ECMIL the reliable construction partner in any project.  So come prepared to ask questions and make a worthwhile connection to get your material supplies organized.
