A great week for Worlifts at MACH

By | May 3rd, 2018|Uncategorised|

Worlifts were very pleased with our week at MACH 2018 exhibiting in the MMMA metalworking village. We have followed up over 100+ leads from the show, opening one new initial account to which we have already supplied a couple of small orders. Wednesday and Thursday were our busiest days, but even with the show finishing at 4pm on Friday, at 3.50pm we still had a number of interested customers on our stand. Overall, a very worthwhile exhibition for us and we are looking forward to the next MACH exhibition.
