As usual, all sectors of the mineral products and construction industries, including quarrying, mining, recycling, concrete, asphalt and materials handling, were brought together giving the thousands of visitors from around the world a unique opportunity to see the latest plant, equipment, systems and services on static display and/or live demonstration. In preparation for the heavy plant and equipment, the organizers dropped 10,000 tons of limestone, enabling improved demonstration area.

Hugh Glandfield, vice-president UK & Ireland for Sandvik Construction, commented, “Hillhead has always been the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our product lines and meet our customers, but this year we were truly staggered by vast number of potential new customers and general visitors who came to the Sandvik stand.”
