With a record number of visitors to last month’s International Materials Handling Exhibition, Bendi rocked the show once again in more ways than one and Bendi MD Simon Brown believes the success of the exhibition is further evidence that the industry has put the dark days of the recession well and truly behind it.
“The atmosphere of the show was incredibly positive and the quality and number of leads we have had this year has been fantastic,’ commented Simon. “From a personal point of view I can’t recall a show when I have spoken to so many people and especially about the new products we launched. The reaction to the Order Picker especially has been phenomenal from both customers and trade partners alike and we have already had the truck on two demonstrations.”
As well as the Bendi Order Picker, the world’s first order picking articulated truck, the Bendi Arctic was also launched with the first true cold store cab for an articulated forklift truck and was celebrated with free ice cream for anyone who came to the stand.
There was also another treat in store for those who came to the Bendi After Show Party. Back by popular demand for a special one-off performance was the Bendi band, aka Ace Trucking Co. The band rocked the IMHX 2010, and there was no way we couldn’t invite them back for another go. The band was brilliant and the atmosphere surrounding their performance was electric.
