Hillhead debut helps strengthen company’s growing presence in the UK and Irish market
HOT on the heels of their successful debut at ScotPlant, SANY UK continued their booming show season with the company’s first attendance at a Hillhead event.
The world largest quarrying, construction and recycling event promised to be the best yet as it celebrated 40 years of the iconic show and it did not disappoint, with more than 600 exhibitors and close to 18,500 visitors across a balmy three days.
SANY took the opportunity to unveil their new SY155W wheeled excavator to the UK market. This 16-tonne machine has been in Europe for two years but has been upgraded with rear stabilizers and a front dozer blade to suit the UK market. It also features state-of-the-art hydraulics with hammer, low flow, and rotate lines, with proportional controls as standard.
Joining the SY155W on the SANY stand was the recently launched SY390H, a 40-tonne tracked excavator designed to offer impressive performance, efficiency, comfort, and economy, with fuel savings of up to 42% over the outgoing SY365C model. Other machines included the SY215C, the ever-popular SY80U and the SY26U and SY18C from SANY’s range of mini-excavators.
Alongside the SANY team were representatives from the company’s nationwide dealer network, who took the opportunity to engage with customers both old and new, as well as suppliers and partners, helping to create an incredible atmosphere on the stand.
Off the stand and to complement the static display, SANY had two of their SY500H crawler excavators working in the Quarry Face and Recycling demonstration areas, providing a great opportunity for visitors to see the machines in action.
Leigh Harris, business development director for the UK and Ireland, commented: ‘What a show! Hillhead was a first for SANY and a brilliant backdrop to unveil our latest machines.
‘We welcomed a huge number of visitors to the stand over the three days and the feedback we have received and the level of interest generated from the machines on display has been exceptional, with a number of excavators sold at the event.
‘There is no doubt that the event has helped to strengthen SANYs’ growing reputation in the UK and Irish market, so we couldn’t be happier.’
