As a regular at manning exhibitions stands, and ever present at the CV Show, we know a good show when we see one.
And last week the CV Show at the NEC may just have been about the most successful we’ve experienced. Plenty of new enquiries to follow up and, very pleasingly, plenty of positive feedback from existing customers.
From customers with just one 3.5t van, through potential resale partners to the operators of the biggest fleets we once again had the full spread of conversations on the stand.
Fortunately we have such a breadth of systems and software that we are able to offer impartial advice on the correct system for the job.
Whilst a fixed axle weighbridge was right for those running full trucks from a DC, an onboard solution would be a far better solution for those on multi-drop work.
Others may offer only one type of system but it’s only by having a vast range, and vast experience of similar applications and industries, that we can offer impartial advice on the right tool for the job.
One or two customers were in the market for a type of system that we don’t produce and, as our intention from day one was to only specialise exclusively in axle weighing, we explained clearly that we couldn’t help and passed them on to others who could.
Some of the applications we discussed were quite complex and will require site visits, in depth discussions about the best solution for the job and plenty of time and patience.
We know that an axle weighbridge can be a big investment and that we will no doubt still be talking to some of our new contacts when the show rolls around again next year.
So with so many interesting applications to discuss the time just flew by and before we knew it we were packing the stand away for another year.
But we’ll be back – and the dates for your diary in 2019 are 30 April, 1 & 2 May.
See you there.
