Things are hotting up at ESTA in preparation for the 2018 ESTA Awards of Excellence event in April with the announcement of the names of the companies shortlisted for a prize. Paris is the host city this year for the big dinner and awards presentation evening on 26 April at the Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle, on the northern periphery of Paris. The event will be held during the Intermat equipment exhibition for the world’s buyers of construction equipment and associated products and services.

Below we reveal the companies that have been shortlisted for the awards in each of the ten categories. One of these in each group will be the winner announced on the 26 April during the evening.

A particularly strong showing for the awards this year sees a total of 61 entries in 10 categories. It is an encouragingly large number, indicating a positive outlook and that there is buoyancy in the European lifting and specialized transport industry at the moment. It is also good to see that those entries are spread evenly across the ten categories and are from a good number of countries.

While there is a good showing from all the usual suspects, some with multiple entries, there are also single entries from other companies, not previously or rarely seen. And it is also not just participation from larger ones – smaller companies are positively encouraged to enter, as are operators using, for example, articulating loader cranes – it is by no means just related to the largest jobs using big crawler- or ring-mounted cranes. One of the categories has an impressive nine entries.
