Hillhead 2014 record breaking for Sandvik Construction

Sandvik Construction broke all records at Hillhead with nearly 4,000 visitors coming to the stand from all over the world in order to see Sandvik’s offering at first hand. Furthermore a significant number of equipment enquiries were received, many deals completed, and the customers welcomed in the traditional Sandvik manner.

With the economic recovery gathering momentum, particularly in the UK, and confidence returning to the mineral products industry, the organisers of Hillhead 2014 reported record attendance of nearly 20,000 visitors at this year’s show. This saw Hillhead proving to be the perfect place for Sandvik to show, and vitally to demonstrate, examples from its total solutions product range at what has become the world’s leading quarry, recycling and construction exhibition.

New and innovative equipment shown included:

  • Stationary crushing equipment – NEW CH540
  • Mobile crushers and screens – NEW Hanging Screen on range of Cone Crushers
  • Breakers  – NEW 5011
  • Drill rigs – DI550 drill rig
  • Tools & Consumables – NEW Optiagg

One of the things which makes the Hillhead exhibition almost unique amongst trade shows is the fact that visitors are not only able to just see static displays of equipment, but also watch live machinery demonstrations. This year was no different, and Sandvik took full advantage of the possibilities presented by demonstrating the following equipment:

On the demonstration area:

  • QJ341 feeding QH331 Cone with NEW hanging screen – Global Launch
  • QJ341 feeding QS331  – UK Show Launch
  • QA331 screener

Sandvik Construction would like to express a big “thank-you” to the organizers of Hillhead 2012, the members of the press for showing so much interest in Sandvik, but most of all to the customers who came to the Sandvik stand. Without them Hillhead 2014 would not have been the success it was, and all at Sandvik Construction look forward to seeing everyone in 2016.
