Based in Australia, Bearcat Tyres organised civil works expo that gave a chance for both suppliers and customers to interact and understand their expectations.
The Civil Works expo is a biennial civil construction expo targeting earthmoving, civil construction and related earthworks industries. Visitors were single or small operators rather than fleet owners such as councils and equipment hire companies. These subcontractors are those who are aiming for long term growth.
The Civil Works Expo features a range of working demonstrations and presentations. Prospective clients can have a trial of equipment such as excavators, skid, steers, backhoes and tele-handlers within a number of controlled areas. With the rapid changes in equipment, this trial offer can help in judging improvements in advanced models.
The expo has been a good opportunity to meet operators’ and listen to their experiences. It also provides both suppliers and end users closer interaction along with the ability to discuss product performance in the field.
Major equipment companies at the event include CAT, Toyota (Huski), Wacker Neuson, CASE Vic, Komatsu, Clarke Bobcat, Gehl, Hitachi, Hyundai and Manitou. There were also small manufacturers and suppliers to promote their products such as Australian Construction Equipment Sales, HarryBilt (AFRON) and Rayco.
