It's now over a week since Plantworx 2017 closed its doors on another successful show. Despite the best efforts of the weather we still saw many visitors to our stand and the enquiry pad was as full as ever come day 3.
As hoped the launch of our new Dieci products went well, it was great to see so many people siting in the cabs, checking under the bonnets and asking questions about the telehandlers. The 1.5 tonne Yanmar SV16 perched up in the air on a Dieci Icarus 40.17 also allowed people to spot our stand from around the show!
The following is taken from the official Plantworx show report:
A&Y Equipment, announced that they had become the UK’s Dieci construction importer at Plantworx, sold their first Dieci telehandler at the show on Tuesday. A local independent builder who had been rained off his site came onto the stand to take a look at the Dieci machines. A deal was agreed for a Dedalus 30.7, which is a fixed telehandler able to lift 3 tonnes up to 7 metres.
A&Y MD, Robert Brown said “Plantworx was the ideal time to launch this new range, it was a great opportunity for relevant people to see and talk about these new machines. From the show we have made sales of a Dedalus 30.7 as well as the Apollo 25.6R from the stand, this is on top of many further Dieci enquires, along with our existing Ammann, Yanmar and Cormidi equipment”
Interest had in machines during the show are now starting to turn into sales. This week already there has been Cormidi tracked dumpers, Yanmar SV08, ViO17 and ViO33's sold just from people attending the show. On the compaction side the ACA2030 add on compactor has gone to a new home through our dealers Phoenix Hire & Sales, plus there are ARX26's being prepped in the workshop for delivery as I type.
Thanks for everybody who made the show possible, from organisers to contractors and most importantly the visitors. See you all again soon...
