The CV Show prevails again

The 14th – 16th April played host to the largest, most comprehensive road freight transport event in Britain, the CV Show.  Held at the NEC Birmingham, the event ensures a nationwide attendance and features focal points including the workshop area where Dura could be found on the green carpet that luckily matched our brand colours.


The CV Show provided the opportunity to showcase our design led solutions that are individually tailored to your business’s needs.  Our 5.7m wide display featured the Dura 900mm wide integrated fluid management system featuring Samoa reels for oil, air and water delivery.  The system also features quick release access panels as well as an oil monitoring keypad and optional extraction controls.  We presented everything required for modern commercial vehicle servicing including our tool cabinets and tool top boxes with laser cut control foam.  One customer appreciated the innovative design so much he purchased two of our tool cabinets straight from the stand at the end of the show.


Dura distributor Gemco were also in attendance with their biggest stand to date.  Featuring vehicle lifts, vehicle roller brake testers, Stenhoj and Dura’s workbenches with fitted vice as well as high and low level cabinetry.


We had a fantastic chat with the gents from Samoa.  Since 1987 the company have evolved to become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lubrication equipment.  On top of this well respected reputation they even found time to brain storm ides with us for our Goodwood revival stand in September.


As well as showcasing their range of products some companies opted to use the show as a platform to launch their latest products.  Dura customer Pro Align debuted their Hunter commercial vehicle wheel alignment system.  The company and their systems help truck, bus and heavy vehicle fleet operators check their wheel alignment regularly and more easily than ever before, creating a reduction in fuel bills and emissions.


The CV Show is an ideal place to meet industry professionals including the CV Workshop magazine who throughout the year will continue to discuss the issues facing the commercial vehicle market.
