BMG visits Hillhead Trade Exhibition

In July I was fortunate enough to travel to the UK and onward to Denmark to visit the Hillhead Trade  Exhibition, and Hydrema HQ.

Held every 2 years at a working quarry in Buxton, the Hillhead Trade Exhibiton is about 1 hour drive southwest of Manchester, UK. Records were broken this year with a whooping 546 exhibitors and a massive 19,687 visitors attending the show to check out the latest and greatest in the machinery industry. What makes this show so unique is the live demonstration areas showcasing new machinery, ranging from Quarry Face to Rock Processing and even Metal Recycling.
Volvo, Komastu, JCB and Leibherr set the scene with the largest displays at the show, but the standout was definitely Volvo– introducing its new L260H wheel loader and ‘The Man Engine’ which was undoubtably a great hit with the kids.

Not surprisingly, it is the world’s largest working quarry show, and while I can’t guarantee you will have the same excellent English weather I enjoyed, I can guarantee you will have a great time if you can get there in 2020.

Catching up with Hydrema

After the 3 day expo came to a conclusion, I spent the next few days with the Sales Director of Hydrema UK, Mr Tim Wadsworth, we visited the Hydrema HQ and had some very informative meetings with the UK Sales and Workshop team.

From there I travelled to the Hydrema Head Office and main production facility in Støvring, Denmark. After visiting here previously in November 2017, I was very impressed with the updated investment that Hydrema is making to its product line and facilities. Hydrema has just opened a new 3000m² assembly plant and is getting underway on a new 2000m² paint facility. In addition to this there are several new CNC and robotic welding plants in the existing buildings.
I also viewed a new “top secret” project, which I can’t say much about except that if you get to visit the Bauma tradeshow in April 2019, you’ll see a cracking new Hydrema on display. We are also expecting an arrival at our yard in Forest Glen around the same time. Stay tuned.

After the meetings and facility tours I sat down with Jan Jenson, the son of the founder and current Managing Director of Hydrema, for a few beers and a nice meal before making the journey back to Australia.
