The world’s biennial leading trade fair for smart and innovative environmental technologies, iFAT, ran from 14th to 18th of May at Messe München and was host to 3,305 exhibitors who welcomed over 142,000 expert visitors from 160 countries to their impressive and interactive stands. The waste water industry was exceedingly well represented with discussions ranging from microplastics to effective recycling and the digital transformation of the industry as a whole – including digitally linked pumps, waste containers with sensors and autonomous road sweepers.
CountyClean Group were in good company amongst the industry’s most progressive exhibiting companies who were at the ready to impress with their raft of heavy duty and technically advanced vehicles, waste processing and recycling units…
The company’s attendance at the record-setting iFAT 2018 in Munich, Germany was yet another exemplary turn out for the UK industry as CountyClean Group’s directors shook hands on major equipment investments worth around £1 million which included the company’s largest deal at the KROLL exhibition stand…
Following a number of meetings at the vast exhibition between CountyClean Group’s directors, O’C Mechanical Services from Ireland and the technical sales team of Germany’s leading manufacturer of high performance environmental vehicle superstructures, KROLL Fahrzeugbau- Umwelttechnik GmbH, a deal was struck and the contract signed at iFAT 2018.
