We’ve just finished out a busy three days at the Materials Handling & Logistics Expo at the ASB Showgrounds. We were so pleased to meet so many new people – potential customers and old friends – so thanks for stopping by.
We were stoked with the attention our Mini Forklift Time Trial Championship saw at the stand. Conceived and planned by our fantastic designers, the forklifts were a huge hit, with the winner, Mike Kerr of Jaytech Industries, taking home a remote control forklift of his own. The competition was fierce, with the morning of the first day of the show already seeing contestants down to under a minute and some natural aptitude with remote controls often making a run look effortless. We were impressed with some of the first timers smashing records when our own staff had been playing with them for weeks and not coming close to their times.
A huge thank you to all the staff who helped out on the stand and stayed cheery even when their feet started to hurt. Thanks also to our wonderful supply chain – the warehouse, sales and ops support and the install team for pulling everything together and building such a great looking display. We’ll be back in 2020 with something even better and looking forward to doing it all over again.
