Viby prepare for UK growth
Danish attachment manufacturer will use Hillhead 2012 to help increase sales
Viby Attachment are using Hillhead as a further boost for a record increase in UK market activity this year.
The Danish attachment manufacturers have already seen UK sales increase by more than thirty per cent in the first quarter of 2012 compared with the same time last year, and they believe Hillhead will help to reinforce this growth trend.
Andrew Little, UK sales manager for Viby, said: ‘During the recession many customers have understandably tightened their purse strings, and either delayed buying new equipment or bought cheaper.
‘The cheaper options, however, typically mean a compromise in quality. We’ve always had a reputation for high quality and, as a result, we are now seeing a significant uplift in sales of our products.
‘Viby attachments are, unashamedly, built to last, so in the medium- to- long-term, will provide unrivalled value for money. I think our customers recognize this.’
Viby will be showcasing a range of their attachments at Hillhead, both on their stand (B28) and in the quarry demo area.
Visitors will be able to see a selection of Viby’s High-Tip and GP buckets for wheeled loaders, which have each experienced a major growth in interest from the UK waste and recycling markets as well as the traditional construction and earthmoving sectors.
Viby will also display a heavy-duty rock bucket, one of which is also likely to be working in the quarry demo area on one of their customers’ excavators.
Volvo have also confirmed that they will be using a 3m3 Viby High-Tip bucket with Top Grab on a new L60G wheeled loader in the demo area, and Bell will also be giving a Viby bucket a run-out on one of their demo loaders.
Mr Little said: ‘Hillhead is always an excellent exhibition, and it has fallen at just the right time for us – when interest from UK customers who recognize the value of durability is at an all-time high.’
