The Show was a great opportunity to meet up with Himoinsa, which is developing a range of synchronised generators

especially to our specifications and which will be delivered in the next few weeks. The new 40kVA single-phase sets have been designed with

safety and simplicity in mind, allowing dedicated sync back up without the complications of a 400V three phase supply. We also placed a further order with Himoinsa at the Show for

additional synchronised models fitted with Deep Sea 8610 control panels, increasing our fleet of 100kVA, 160kVA and 200kVA machines.

I visit the Show for two purposes. The first is to get a feel for the market through communication with manufacturers and hirers, and with very few exceptions, it felt the most positive ever. This gives me confidence to invest in and grow our business. Secondly, it is a platform to talk to, and do deals with, our key supply partners in respect of our spend potential over the next 12 months. We ordered five KFS Plant & Go vehicles, bought 223 tools from Hilti that are being delivered as we speak, and ten TL 90 lighting towers from Morris. Other deals included thirty 6kVa and 10kva diesel generators from Stephill, five Transit dropside vans from Trust Ford, ten Quickstep podiums from the Access Platform Company, and 30 pallet trucks from Hire Supply Co.

This superb Show has become a permanent fixture in our calendar. With the opportunity to speak directly with industry experts and see machines and equipment up close, this is an event that simply cannot be missed. Networking with fellow hirers has also become an important part of visiting too. The incredibly diverse number of exhibitors on show once again gave us the chance to appraise new products and services available. Show highlights for Project were Belle, Bomag and Bona to name but a few.

” “ Iain Anderson of GAP.

The range of products on display never fails to amaze me - everything from large plant such as excavators, dumpers and telehandlers, to small tools and consumables. Our Safety, Health and Environmental risk compliance team members who attended also report that the Show is an increasingly important event in their calendar, enabling suppliers to promote their latest solutions to our business. Most of the major suppliers were there, all under the one roof, allowing staff to network efficiently. Other stand-outs included the upgraded JCB EcoMax engine, the new Kubota 0.8-tonne micro excavator and Hilti’s ON!Track asset management solution.

David Gallagher (fourth from the right) and the Charles Wilson team are one of the Show’s biggest supporters over the 10 Shows.

We again held our regular meeting before the Show, with 34 managers in attendance. With many of the top names serving our industry exhibiting their latest models, technologies and services, our managers were able to evaluate many of the exciting new products they can continue to offer their customers. The combination of the Show and our managers’ meeting provided for a successful day and we are very much looking forward to what the next Show has to offer in 2017.
