The Construction Plant Show 2007

The Construction Plant show 2007 is set to showcase all that's new and innovative in the world of construction plant, tools and equipment. The event, taking place in the Punchestown Event Centre, Co. Kildare from 29th- 31st March, 2007, will see displays and demonstrations from the strongest ever line up of over 100 exhibitors from Ireland's Construction Plant Industry including McCormick Macnaughton, Pat O'Donnell & Co. Ltd, McHale Plant Sales and Embankment Machinery Sales (EMS).

The biannual show which celebrates Ireland's biggest Industry is supported by the Irish Contractors Plant Association (ICPA) and popular features are returning for 2007 including the product of the show awards and the outdoor demonstration area. Outstanding products at the show will be officially recognised by way of the keenly contested Product of the Show awards to provide valuable commercial advantage from the added exposure.

An undisputed highlight of the show will come from McCormick Macnaughton who will be hosting the Ireland opening heats of the Caterpillar European Operator Challenge, 2007. Caterpillar's Europe-wide contest promotes safe and efficient machine operation and helps to raise general operating standards by recognising the safest and most skilful construction plant operators in Europe.

The winners of the Construction and Plant Show heats will proceed to final heats to qualify for a place in the McCormick Macnaughton Team representing Ireland at the Caterpillar European Operator Finals in the Spanish resort of Malaga in October 2007.

Satrak is attending the show with their cost effective asset/plant security solution. Satraks' asset security system combats the challenge of Ireland's increasing plant equipment theft by providing plant owners with instant direct, real time communications with their machines at all times.

The system allows equipment to be tracked and remotely immobilised using any touch tone phone, mobile phone, or PC from anywhere in the world. The system talks directly to the plant owner, and can allow an immediate and accurate response to a theft situation. A tow away alert notifies Satrak system users if their asset moves from an identified location.
