Company Provides Broadest Range of Innovative, Reliable Sliding Hardware; Online Store and Website Expand Flexibility, Support
SANTA FE SPRINGS, California, Oct. 31, 2019 – Accuride® International, the world’s largest designer and manufacturer of sliding hardware, will show woodworkers at WMS 2019 the wide array of innovative, reliable solutions it offers to help them serve customers and stay ahead of competitors. WMS will be held at The International Centre in Toronto from Oct. 31 – Nov. 2.
Exhibiting in Booth 1060, Accuride will provide interactive application displays, individual tours, and personalized demos. In addition to demonstrating its product solutions, the company will share information on its recently-launched online store and new website, which adds convenience, education, and support to the user experience.
“Accuride helps the woodworking community explore and pursue infinite possibilities – encompassing all the rooms of a home or business, any size project, traditional or experimental design, and all kinds of furnishings,” said Sid Kalantar, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Accuride. “Professional cabinetmakers, furniture manufacturers and hobbyists count on us for myriad innovative and inspiring solutions.”
Many Canadian woodworkers depend on Accuride. For example, Devin Chisholm, of Bad Wolf Woodworking in Ontario’s Niagara Region, said: “The diversity in the Accuride lineup keeps me coming back. I know that whenever a customer has an odd request, I will find an Accuride product to address the requirement – whether, for example, the customer needs an extremely short slide, a slide for a pocket door in a closet, or a high-strength slide for a truck-bed extension. And I never have to worry about quality because it’s always top-notch. Accuride makes my job easier.”
Visitors to Accuride’s WMS booth will learn how to use the company’s BHMA- and AWI-certified products for drawers, shelves, trays, doors, panels, computer screens and other fixtures. They will get to try out such features as Easy-Close, Touch-Release, and Self-Close.
Accuride will showcase these innovations:
- 116RC Heavy-Duty Linear Track System, a state-of-the-art, ADA-compliant solution for sliding doors that also supports such structures as large screens, panels, movable walls, and movable countertops
- Two-Way Travel Slides, which offer double extension where it’s needed most, including in kitchen islands, pass-through shelves, dining or entertainment bars, medical carts, and drawersor trays at drive-through pharmacies or banks
To expand access to its products, Accuride earlier this year launched an e-commerce site for North American customers, which it will demonstrate at AMS.
“We created the online store to meet customers’ needs to be able to order a broad selection of our solutions anytime, anywhere and on any device,” Kalantar said. “Our e-commerce option closes geographical distribution gaps, letting customers purchase a full range of specialty products, as well as popular slides, including undermount and heavy-duty solutions.”
