IMHX 2004 was the first Show Hubtex had exhibited at in the UK, despite being the Market Leader in Electric Sideloader Technology for many years. Their name had been hidden under the Boss logo for many years and this was the time to launch the Hubtex name direct to the Materials Handling Market.
The last 2 years have seen significant sales growth in the UK for the German Manufacturer One visitor, IDS, investigated a product never seen in the UK but shown on photos on the stand and consequently bought 2 of the trucks. The truck in question is a two man picking platform, now know in the UK as The Barge.
The name Hubtex is becoming a know brand in the UK now, with some thanks to the efforts of the last IMHX Show but things will be even more interesting this time round. They are launching to the UK Market their established 6 Tonne Reach Truck, known as the ESW which can also be specified to work on outdoor floors.
The new range of Indoor/Outdoor electric trucks will be on the stand, along with the upgraded 4 way Diesel and LPG truck, the Hubtex DQ40 which caused a huge stir at the last Show.
Also, a small truck which has found to be invaluable for the smaller user, the Hubtex 4 way Pedestrian Truck, which is now available in capacities up to 3500KGS.
