Goldhofer makes its mark at Conexpo with the new THP/DR modular system

“Magic, impressive, fantastic!” – Those were typical reactions of visitors to the Goldhofer Stand at Conexpo in Las Vegas. With its latest world first unveiled at the event, namely the new THP/DR for dual lane operations on public roads, the German company from Memmingen is meeting a real need within the industry and has once again consolidated its position as the leading manufacturer of vehicles for heavy-duty and oversized on-road cargo transportation in North America.

“The trade show was a great success, and the THP/DR heavy-duty modules at our stand met with a sensational response. Our expectations in the new heavy-duty module, which were pretty high to begin with, were easily exceeded,” says Stefan Fuchs, CEO of Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft. In addition to the THP/DR, which has been developed specially for the North American market, Goldhofer also presented its PST/SL-E 6 self-propelled module with electronic steering, which was also very much in demand at Las Vegas. Apart from the product range, the new-look Goldhofer stand also made a big impression on trade show visitors from all over the world: “In comparison to 2011, we were in a much better location this year and the number of visitors was well up. The quality of the contacts was excellent, with lots of decision-makers calling at the stand, and several contacts were signed on the spot,” says Stefan Kohler, Area Sales Manager for North America.

“With more than 2,400 exhibitors and over 130,000 visitors, Conexpo 2014 is the world’s biggest construction plant trade show and one of the pillars of the booming trade show business in Las Vegas. “With such an outstanding response at the event, we can look forward to long-term growth on the markets of North, Central and South America,” the Goldhofer CEO adds.
