ERA’s Technical Committee announces that the next face-to-face meetings between rental companies and manufacturers will take place at Bauma, on 14 April.
In 2014, the Technical Committee of ERA had decided to initiate some meetings where rental companies could share their needs with the equipment manufacturers. For confidentiality reasons, it was decided not to have all the OEMs in a same room but to have some separate sessions.
The last round of face-to-face meetings was organised at Intermat, with 10 manufacturers.
Following those meetings, ERA confirmed that technical development of equipment was taking more in consideration the request of the rental industry to reduce damages and accidents and to lower the costs for repair and maintenance.
ERA’s Technical committee reviewed carefully the format and the methodology of these workshops in order to produce benefits to the rental industry and the OEM’s as well.
In Munich, 12 manufacturers (members of ERA or not) will meet with the rental companies and will share their improvements focusing on 4 topics predetermined by the Technical Committee.
