Doosan signs up for twoDoosan signs up for two

Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment has confirmed bookings for both the Executive Hire Show and the new Plantworx Exhibition in 2013.

The EHS Show stand display will feature Doosan Portable Power’s compressor, generator, light tower and construction tool ranges. Bobcat micro- and mini-excavators will be prominent, part of the Bobcat compact equipment range that includes skid-steer loaders, compact tracked loaders, telehandlers, utility vehicles and attachments.

First Year for Plantworx

At Plantworx 2013, Doosan has booked an area of 36 x 24 m for the static display comprising products from Doosan Heavy, Bobcat, Doosan Portable Power and Attachment products. A similar sized area has also been booked in the Demonstration Zone, right opposite the static stand, where the latest Doosan Heavy and Bobcat products will be put through their paces.

Kevin Zimmer, Regional Director for UK and Ireland for Doosan, said: “We have had good experience of the EHS show for a number of years now. The Plantworx show is a new one for the industry and, with the mix of static and demo areas, I’m hopeful it will prove a success. Alternating in the future with the Hillhead exhibition, Plantworx should fill the hole left by the demise of the SED exhibition.”
