Jungheinrich makes event industry move

Jungheinrich makes event industry move

Materials handling equipment specialist Jungheinrich UK Ltd has been appointed by ESSA (Event Supplier and Services Association) as its official materials handling equipment partner.

ESSA is a trade association representing contractors and suppliers of goods and services to the exhibition industry and, through its network of partners, aims to promote best practice across a wide range of disciplines.

“Jungheinrich UK is a leading supplier of material handling equipment to the events industry and we have supplied major sporting events, live events, festivals, concerts, exhibitions, venues and more, so we are delighted to become ESSA’s official materials handling equipment partner,” says Adam Cafe (pictured), Jungheinrich’s events and exhibitions sector hire manager.

“The tie-up with ESSA is an important step in promoting our brand to this vitally important and growing sector and we intend to work closely with the organisation in a consultative role to ensure that companies operating in the events arena are getting the best from their materials handling equipment and using the most appropriate, safest and cost-efficient products for the job.”

Andrew Harrison, ESSA’s deputy director, says: “We’re hugely appreciative of Jungheinrich’s support of the association in becoming an official partner of ESSA. Partnerships are a key driver behind many of our industry and member initiatives, and combined with Jungheinrich’s experience of the material handling sector and their desire to drive standards within this area of the events industry we’re really looking forward to working with them over the coming months.”

Jungheinrich UK Ltd has over 4,000 fork lift trucks, telehandlers and other plant available for short-term rental. All products are available for next-day delivery anywhere in the UK mainland.
