Illumin8 has now added the X-Battery to its fleet, and at the Show MD Neil Fenwick placed an order for another 80 X-Eco machines, bringing its total holding of this particular model to no fewer than 240. “The X-Eco has been extremely well received by our customers,” he said. “The fact that it has six LED heads gives great flexibility and versatility in terms of light coverage, and it gives excellent performance regarding fuel consumption and carbon emissions.”

Monitoring the market

The range includes the X-Chain linkable light.

Trime also offers the X-Hybrid which runs off diesel or battery power, and the company monitors overall user trends closely. Trime CEO, Ray Caulfield, states that “Our hire company customers are also driving us to develop even more eco-friendly and sustainable machines to meet growing demand from contractors.” MD Paul Hay adds that, “battery technology will continue to develop, giving longer usage and faster re-charge times, and this will further

increase user interest. As we are seeing in the motor industry, battery and hybrid machines will become the preferred option.”

The company stresses the importance of customer service, and Ray Caulfield summarises this as being based on four elements: supply, support, training and advice. Similarly, Paul Hay states that, “We recognise the demands of the hire industry in terms of delivery and backup. 90% of orders for spares are supplied next-day from Huntingdon, and other items can be shipped very quickly from Milan. We keep in close contact with customers, and we maintain a visible presence on social media so that people can engage with us.”

Back at Trime headquarters, Andrea Fontanella and his team are busy working on other products for the hire industry. EHN was given an exclusive insight into these forthcoming developments, which should be ready for launch in the UK later this year. Focused again on environmental-friendliness and sustainability, they should be well worth checking out. And they will ensure that those sophisticated computer-controlled manufacturing machines at the production plant are kept even busier.
