Drives & Controls Exhibition Part 1

I visited the Drives & Controls Exhibition at The NEC recently. I had never had the chance to go before and, I have to say, I didnt really know what to expect. What I did know was that there were a number of companies exhibiting that were either past or current suppliers to myself. When you are sat in an office most of the day talking to "voices" it is very nice to meet those "voices" face to face. Much of the exhibition focussed on hydraulics, pneumatics, tools and linear technologies but I met people who I do business with on a regular basis including the power transmission side of the business. I particularly enjoyed talking to people at the KOBO stand and was impressed with one of the guys who specialised in leaf chains for forklift trucks. He explained the various types of chain that can be supplied to suit different FLT applications and how they can generally supply specific applications at very short notice. If you have a requirement why not call ourselves and we can arrange direct delivery to yourselves.
