A few weeks ago World of Concrete took place. A yearly event in the Las Vegas Convention Centre and the ideal place for all professionals in construction, demolition, and the concrete industry to meet. New products are presented, but there is also plenty of room for conversation and knowledge transfer. This year revolved around sustainable innovations: the perfect moment for Cratos Equipment to promote their emission free machines, with in particular our electric mini-loaders!
Cratos & Vacuworx
Cratos Equipment has successfully brought our electric machines on the North American market, especially in the construction and demolition industries. A stand at WOC therefore was the ultimate opportunity to continue that success with new innovations. All sales managers of Cratos attended WOC, led by CEO and founder Alex Berg.
Corné Roovers and Marcel van den Hanenberg visited WOC on behalf of SHERPA mini-loaders. To meet up with Cratos Equipment, but also to get in contact with other business relations. This is because our machines were not only shown at the stand of Cratos, but also at Vacuworx: they demonstrated various vacuum applications with a SHERPA.
The new Z-series
To honour the theme, the electric and already praised SHERPA 100 Eco and SHERPA 100 2Speed were presented at WOC. Furthermore, this was of course the perfect moment to introduce the new Z-series to the American market: our next generation skid steer loaders, completely emission free and significantly improved in terms of power, ergonomics, and design. The Z-series are therefore considered the next step in working smart – indispensable for anyone that wants to ease hard work in a sustainable way!
Our machines are compact, but powerful. They are also agile and durable: the ideal partner to ease hard work. Our skid-steer loaders were therefore received with much enthusiasm in Las Vegas, just as the demand in Europe continues to rise. The overstrained labour market contributes to this as well: now staff is becoming scarce and more expensive, a SHERPA offers a solution.
We therefore expect our machines to stay relevant and more (potential) customers to become familiar with their benefits. Especially since we are expanding our tools, which ensure even more convenience. Hence we strongly believe our machines will remain subjects of interest to anyone involved in hard work.
Trends & expectations
At the event it became clear more and more machines and tools are getting electrified and combined with one another. For example, Cratos Equipment combined a SHERPA with an electric TWINCA and Vacuworx demonstrated the use of our machines with vacuum applications. We hope and expect to develop such tools ourselves, but also to work with these market parties more often in the future. This way, we can offer our customers a comprehensive solution, with smart machines that make hard work easier, more efficient and sustainable.
