Conference quotes

28 February 2008

Tim Whiteman (pictured), IPAF: “This week, there will be a quarter of a million people holding PAL cards in the world. It is an amazing landmark.”

Richard Tindale, UpRight: “In the UK, we expect construction to carry on growing right the way through to 2012...Demand in Spain continues at a level far greater than you would think could be sustained. We anticipate an oversupply in that market in 2008. Oversupply can only mean one thing – lower rental rates.” UpRight anticipates a high demand for big booms in Russia and the Baltic States during 2008.

Frank Klessens, Alimak Hek: “I'm convinced that we can get more growth [in European access equipment sales] than 3-3.5% per year if we carry out the right actions, by focusing on the higher productivity of our products, and the safety benefits of products.”
