Joe Dobson from Argos certainly got more than he expected from his visit to the Barloworld & Hyster stand at IMHX. He won a brand new Renault Clio worth £8000 in the prize draw that featured on the stand!
Unsurprisingly Barloworld and Hyster were swamped with hundreds of entries for the car, and there was a buzz of excitement in the air as visitors enjoyed many of the other attractions on the stand.
The Barloworld and Hyster stand featured a sports bar providing free refreshments and screens broadcasting live racing from the Cheltenham races. A sweep stake was run on each race with the winners picking up Karcher pressure washers worth over £200. The stand even featured its very own golf course with a putting competition. Mike Ferguson of Richard Burbridge Ltd won the top prize of a Power Caddie and golf bag.
The main attraction, however, was a comprehensive range of Hyster warehouse and forklift trucks including the innovative new Fortens range. The recently launched Hyster H4.00-5.00FT truck featured in a zone dedicated to the Fortens, a range which is proving a major hit with fleet operators. So impressed was one visitor that he wrote a cheque and ordered one from the stand! Other trucks featured included the Hyster C1.3 Man-up turret truck for high density storage operations and Hyster J1.60XMT 3 wheel electric counterbalance truck with one of the tightest turning circles in its class.
Visitors arriving at the show could not help but be impressed by Hyster’s RS46-36CH Container Handler in the big trucks zone. With a capacity of 45,000kg the truck had no problem lifting a 40ft container loaded with a Hyster lift truck and Renault car!
“We are extremely pleased with our presence at this year’s IMHX” comments Roger Massey, Marketing Executive at Barloworld. “Our stand was very busy throughout the show and helped demonstrate to visitors that they get more from Barloworld and Hyster. Now we have a large number of enquiries to follow up!”
The Get More theme featured on the stand is designed to show fleet operators everywhere that they get more performance, efficiency, dependability and value from a partnership with Barloworld and Hyster.
