Being an electrician, heating installer or plumber... In the past, these were completely different professions, but due to new technologies, they are increasingly growing closer together. Install Day, the trade fair for professionals from the Belgian installation sector has therefore been set up by driving forces FEDELEC (AIE member) and ICS (HVAC), both professional installation associations, together with the ‘Confederation Building’ association. Defending the interests of more than 3,000 independents, SMEs and large companies in the sector, they bring together the entire installation sector in one day.
During Install Day ‘TECHLINK’, the new name of the current merger between former associations FEDELEC and ICS was launched.
As Willy Pauwels, General Director of Techlink concluded during the press conference at Install Day: ‘"The number of companies that enter the electrical, HVAC and sanitary market is constantly increasing. The merger between ICS and Fedelec is therefore totally in line with this.’
Techlink will follow up Fedelec as a member of AIE. Furthermore, Techlink is part of the ‘Confederation Building’ association, being the largest federation for the construction sector in Belgium. Together with this umbrella organization they represent electrical and HVAC (or mixed) companies at local, regional, national and European level. Techlink is also active in many organizations within the installation and construction sector, connecting different stakeholders with each other. Technicians, manufacturers, schools and other influential voices come into contact via Techlink.
