UK companies which exhibited at the British Hardware and Houseware Association (BHHMA) pavilion at the National Hardware Show in Chicago recently report an excellent return on their objectives.

Phil Slinger, DIY director of the BHHMA , said: “It is very important that every business activity is cost-effective and no doubt return on objectives will remain an important consideration.”

The BHHMA pavilion attracted an interesting mix of serious buyers from all over the world and exhibitors recorded positive leads which they hope will become concrete business.
