Robert Thomson November update
although some have said that the unseasonably mild weather is making the hire of heaters a bit slower than normal. Having said that, the hire of lighting towers and floodlights is progressing apace. As a supplier I can certainly attest to the upswing in our business on items such as festoon and task lights, no doubt helped by our recent promotions.
The larger independent companies such as Lord Hire Centres in the North East and Eagle Plant in Scotland are very keen to make it to the Show as they find that the effort and journey is well worthwhile. While speaking to Michael Baird at Lord Hire Centres, he told me that they already have a shopping list and are currently speaking to some of the larger suppliers on items that are likely to be on a special Show deals. It’s not just the larger companies that are looking forward to EHS 2020: Highland Plant in East Lothian have already spoken to me regarding their attendance and they also have a shopping list!
