The Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show, now just over two months away, will provide a golden opportunity for hauliers to see a wide range of new equipment for their vehicles.
This includes add-ons such as tail lifts, several different types of which will be on display. Manufacturers at the show will include US specialist Maxon, which has had a UK arm based in Peterborough for five years.
The company will be displaying three different tail lifts at the show, two of which are new models. Maxon will be on stand 3E64 in hall 3A at the show, which runs at the Birmingham NEC on 24-26 April.
Maxon’s product manager, Kevin Woods, says that the CV Show gives the firm the chance to meet the potential installers, bodybuilders and manufacturers who mostly make up its customers.
It doesn’t generally sell directly to hauliers, although Woods says it still welcomes them at its stand and values their support.
He said: “Sometimes it is a driver’s preference which can lead to one tail lift being fitted rather than another. The backing of the people who actually use the lifts is very important.”
