In May 2023 members of the Paterson Simons UK team attended Vertikal Days, held in Peterborough.
Vertikal Days is a specialist event with its core centred firmly around access platforms, cranes, telehandlers and associated lifting equipment for lifting professionals.
Giving an unobstructed view of the industry’s latest products, the show is attended by buyers/company owners that represents around 90% of UK and Irish rental companies responsible for more than 80% of all crane and aerial lift purchases in the region. It is also growing in the number of international exhibitors and visitors at senior management level. For Paterson Simons the show presents the opportunity to meet with key suppliers and to allow the UK team to have hands on experience with product.
Of particular interest was the visit to the Manitowoc UK stand where in addition to all terrain models GMK5120L, GMK3060L-1 and GMK5250XL-1 we were also able to see the new Italian built rough terrain GRT8100-1 (100MT) which we currently have on order for a customer in Liberia.
We would like to thank to our colleagues at Manitowoc UK for hosting us along with Florian Peters and Federico Lovera from the factories in Germany and Italy for really informative walkarounds.
