Doosan 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.”
