Busy ConExpo for Linden Comansa

HUARTE(NAVARRA)/SPAIN, March 17, 2014 - On March 8th finished another edition of the ConExpo-Con/Agg tradeshow, 2014’s most important appointment for the construction machinery sector in the entire American continent. With no time to rest, now it’s time to continue working after a fair in which there hasn’t been even a second of respite for tower crane manufacturer like Linden Comansa.

Before the fair, the climate was positive and signs of recovery in North America were glimpsed. During ConExpo, the team of Linden Comansa and its subsidiary in the United States, Linden Comansa America, experienced the reality of an optimistic market.
Linden Comansa America’s booth received the visit of the top construction companies in the United States and Canada, as well as many rental companies of tower cranes and lifting equipment. The interest of the visitors focused on the large cranes from the LC2100 Series, such as the 21LC750 and the 21LC660, whose turntable was exposed in Las Vegas. Both models feature versions with up to 48 tonnes of maximum load and are designed to deliver high performances at any type of public work.

"We experienced over twice the activity of the last show", says Bill Carbeau, Vice President of Business Development for Linden Comansa America. "The visitors had high interest and were ready to talk about purchases or equipment purchase plans. Over 60% were qualified candidates with over half of those requesting information and quotations."
"Our theme was to generate awareness and educate the potential owner of the benefits of the Linden Comansa product range. About 25% of inquiries were related to the luffing-jib crane family, while about 75% related to various sizes of the highly acclaimed flat top tower cranes. Although no orders were written at the show, we received requests for quotes totaling over 30 tower cranes. We are confident that it will not comply with the phrase "what happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas" and that the show will be a precursor to a great year for sales".

According to Martín Echevarría, Linden Comansa’s Sales Director, the ConExpo fair has been much better than expected: "We knew that the North American market was improving, but we were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere so optimistic and the number of new projects that are coming out. We have been very busy during the entire fair, preparing offers and making new contacts which we hope will be fruitful in the upcoming weeks".
