Directors of the new blast-proof, crash-proof anti-terrorist barrier — KarabloK — have confirmed huge interest in their product at the World of Concrete (WOC) trade show in Las Vegas.
The innovative precast concrete system drew the attention of both delegates and the media when it was unveiled at the show.
KarabloK director Gareth Neale said: “The show was excellent for us. The response was much greater than we could have ever hoped for.
“We came here from the UK to introduce our new product to North American markets and find precast businesses that we could licence to manufacture, sell and install this product.
“We’ve come away with meetings and facility visits planned with several businesses in different parts of the United States. They spent a lot of time asking all the right questions and went away full of enthusiasm.
“Interestingly, some were more interested in the anti-terrorist applications of the product and others in the industrial applications.
“In addition to these, we also had serious enquiries from Australia and from the Middle East – both from businesses interested in becoming licensees and from others looking at their own installation requirements.
“It will take us a while to process all the enquiries but we’ll be back in the USA in the next few weeks to consolidate agreements before putting the legal aspects of our commercial activities together.
“Thanks again to everyone at WOC; the show certainly worked for us.”
