Wolfe will continue to market the products internationally. The Razadeck 200 podium, launched by Wolfe last year, will continue to be sold and, said Birchwood, would “serve as a springboard for the launch of Birchwood's own extensive range of low-level access products that will be unveiled at the Executive Hire Show in January 2007.” The Executive Hire Show takes place at the Ricoh Arena, in Coventry, UK, on 31 January and 1 February 2007 (See Events Diary on page 10.)
