A Hunting We Will Go………………………

January 26th, 2014 by

Yes, we’ve had the best year since the company was formed………… yes, we’ve invested over £150k in new equipment …………… yes we’ve added to our team and …………………yes, we’ve taken on extra space at our yard in East Harling……………….but no, we are not resting on our laurels.

Apart from the fact the we’ve got a couple of ‘new projects’ on the go at the moment (more about these later – we are only in design mode at the moment!), we are still on the look out for new kit to expand our offerings to our friends in the construction and event markets.

So with two exhibitions (or trade fairs or ‘shows’ – call them what you will) looming up in February, we will be out in force with our beady eyes peeled for the latest products about to hit the stands.

The first exhibition we will be attending is the Event Production Show,( hosted by the media giant, Mash Media. After a couple of barren years, we have decided to take up a stand at this Show (D28 – come and say hello), so our participation will be two-fold. We think its going to be a great couple of days, the organisers have certainly put a big effort in publicising the event, so we hope that the aisles are swelled with eager event people, clutching their order books in mad expectation!

We expect to meet some of our existing clients, so our bar bill may take some strain, but we also hope to meet up with some new organisations that have yet to sample the delights of our MegaSol, Foldtable, Trackway, Roadways, Walkways and, of course, the best marquee flooring (in our opinion anyway) available, our British made LuxTrax! All the usual GT Trax suspects will be in attendance, so we hope to find some time to hunt around the stands to see if there are new products/services that might fit into our hire fleet. If you are exhibiting at the show and you have something that you think might be of interest to us, don’t be shy and come over and do your pitch! You will be made welcome. Likewise, if you have the need for our type of equipment for an event or show this year, come and have a chat, you never know, we might just have the kit that you have been looking for!

The second exhibition we will be scouring, is the Executive Hire Show, organised by the hire industry trade magazine, Executive Hire News. The venue for this annual soirée is the Ricoh Arena, which until recently, was the home of Coventry City Football Club.

The Executive Hire Show ( is mainly centred around tools and equipment for the general hire industry, but as our remit extends into the construction and building industry, we may spot something that gets our hire juices flowing. Indeed, a couple of years ago we spied the Trenchlink at this show, which has, over time, been a nice little earner for us.

So that’s the second week of February taken care of, if either of these two shows unearth something slightly ‘sexy’ you can guarantee we will be making a fuss of it. Even if nothing transpires, we will still have some fun meeting up with friends old and new. So see you in the bar! Cheers!!
