THAT’S A WRAP – ROLLING OUT THE TRACKWAY® AT CONEXPO EXHIBITION, LAS VEGAS
The FAUN Trackway USA® team have this month returned from exhibiting for the first time at CONEXPO 2017.
CONEXPO is the world’s most major construction industry exhibition represented amongst 2,500 plus exhibitors with over 2,500,000 square feet of exhibition space (13 miles!) seeing over 140,000 visitors from across the globe attending the show over the course of a week. Lastest innovations, technologies, equipment, products and services concerning the construction industry are showcased at the show which is why CONEXPO is considered as one of the most informative exhibitions focusing on construction and construction material industries.
FAUN Trackway USA® team launched our brand new ACCESS AND ENVIRONMENT sector to the construction industry and demonstrate our static display of our ROADWAY DISPENSER unit, attracting countless visitors to the stand, spreading the word of our world leading expedient access solutions.
Alongside our President, Chris Kendall, Vice President Mike Holdcraft and Product Support Engineer, Neil Wigley, FAUN Trackway® were delighted to be supported by our ACCESS AND ENVIRONMENT sector consultants John Mercer and George Walker from Mercer Associates.
As well as Mercer Associates, Jim Wank and Mike Scharra from Defense Products Marketing part of the Command Holdings Group joined the team, a continued partnership whereby FAUN Trackway® USA, Inc. and DPM collaborate to attend a number of US exhibitions throughout the year.
The predominant attraction drawing visitors to our stand was our impressive static display of our C40 ROADWAY DISPENSER; a deployment, recovery, transportation and storage device for up to 131’ 3” of C40 Trackway®.
C40 Trackway® offers a tough, durable solution for rapid access and recovery for vehicles and people in rugged, bogged down or otherwise inaccessible terrain.
We were delighted to have partnered with JCB at CONEXPO, displaying the C40 Roadway Dispenser on a JCB 560-80 Agri-Loadall (American designated 512-26 loadall) to provide a full turnkey package. Mounting the beam dispenser to a host machine via a bespoke adapter plate and quick release coupling allows one operator to deploy the C40 Trackway® in less than five minutes over the toughest of terrain.
Neil Wigley, Product Support Engineer, arrived on site almost a week before the start of the exhibition to integrate our ROADWAY DISPENSER to the JCB machine.
Many pieces of equipment were already being sited at this point. The JCB team were excellent and the Loadall turned up as planned. The Beam Dispenser was integrated in three minutes and the complete machine was on stand within the hourNeil Wigley, Product Support Engineer,
