PLANTWORX 2015 – All the fun of the Trade Fair

It’s just a few months before PLANTWORX construction equipment machinery exhibition throws open its doors to construction industry professionals. The PLANTWORX team is in top gear and going at full throttle in preparation for the forthcoming show at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, Leicestershire from 2nd – 4th June 2015.
The event which is being organised and promoted by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association) will be the UK’s largest ‘working’ construction equipment event spanning over 100,000 square metres. Visitors to the show will see the very latest plant and machinery operating in ‘real’ site conditions – compact plant will feature alongside mid-range equipment. Many exhibitors will be encouraging visitors, who present the correct operator’s licence, to try the kit first hand and put the machines through their paces on one of the many demonstration areas. Visitors will also see hundreds of brand new products including many world-firsts!
The UK’s largest ‘working’ construction event has at last count 275 exhibitors committed to the show and of these more than 121 (44%) will be exhibiting at the event for the very first time. In terms of size and exhibitors numbers the 2015 show has already exceeded the 2013 exhibition and with just over two-months before the event the Plantworx team is expecting the show to be a ‘sell out’ and is already almost 90% sold – making this event the hottest ticket in town and a spectacular action packed 3-days!
Earthmoving machinery plays a huge role at the show and the majority of the key players in the construction equipment market will be showing and demonstrating their machines from mini’s, midi’s, and heavy line to breakers, dumpers and dozers – many exhibitors have already confirmed they have brand new kit to show off!
Visitors looking to see kit in action need look no further than; A & Y Equipment (Ammann & Yanmar) , Altrad Belle, Auger Torque, Avant Tecno, Case Construction, Finning/Cat, Hanix Europe, Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe, JCB, LiuGong, Marubeni Komatsu, Miller UK, Takeuchi, Terex, Volvo Construction Equipment , Wacker Neuson and Whites Material Handling. A full list of exhibitors with demo plots can be found on the Plantworx website.
Where there’s earthmoving machinery there’ll be attachments and Plantworx 2015 has got this area well covered. From augers to buckets; from quick hitches to rakes, blades and grabs visitors will find an attachment for every application at the show. Ag Con/Steel Wrist, Auger Torque Europe, B A Caulkett, BPH Attachments, Digbits, ECY Haulmark, Engcon, Hill Engineering, Humech Attachments Miller UK, Northern Track and Viby Attachments are just some of the confirmed attachment manufacturers at the show.
Tool companies, lighting, generators, welfare cabin manufacturers have also come out in force to support Plantworx. Bosch is the latest tool company to book its stand alongside Fairport Construction, Multiquip (UK), LBW Machines Probst Handling and Altrad Belle. Lighting and generator companies include Towerlight UK and Morris Site Machinery.
Transport was an area of Plantworx that visitors from the 2013 event wanted to see expand and the 2015 event will see more of these companies taking part – on both static and demonstrating. AJC Trailers, Bateson Trailers, Brian James Trailers, Goldhofer, Ifor Williams Trailers, Isuzu Trucks UK, King Trailers, Macs Truck Sales, Nooteboom Trailers, Nugent Trailers and Shawtrack Services have already booked their stand space.
Site Clearance is an area of the show which has been expanded to include demolition, recycling and site clearing machinery as well as a ‘shared demo plot’. Exhibitors confirmed in this area include remote controlled demolition machine manufacturer – Brokk UK, Riverside Machinery, Red Rhino Crushers and Worsley Plant. Look out too for Northerntrack and ECY Haulmark.
