That makes it all the more important for us to maintain a strong presence on this growth market as a transport specialist for the relevant industries such as the construction plant industry and the heavy-haulage industry, etc. That is something we definitely achieved at Plantworx. It is particularly gratifying that our latest innovation, the STZ-VP 8, met with such a keen response from the experts," says Dennis Leschensky, Area Sales Manager UK and Ireland.
