Key report to be unveiled at Construction Equipment Association (CEA) conference next month
THE Construction Equipment Association (CEA) will be holding a conference at the Henry Ford College, Loughborough University, on 10 June 2014 (9am to 2pm), which will see the launch of the first official UK Construction Equipment Sector Report in a decade.
The CEA’s forward strategy places an emphasis on innovation and engineering, and the report was commissioned by the Association with the support of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS).
During the conference, the results of the National Survey for the evaluation of the scale, scope and future of Britain’s construction equipment and off-highway sectors will be presented by Alex Woodrow, managing director of Knibb Gormezano and Partners.
There will also be support speakers from: the Technology Strategy Board – Funding and Support for Innovation; and ETI (Energies Technology Institute), a public-private partnership between global energy and engineering companies and the UK Government.
Delegates will also be introduced to the CEA Skills Advisory Panel, which is a new initiative by the CEA to address skills issues in the construction equipment sector, and will have the opportunity to see a display of cutting-edge technology and equipment from CEA members, including Bomag, Caterpillar, JCB, Komatsu and Volvo CE among others.
