Times have been tough for the Victorian industry of late, and is often said, “when the going gets tough, the tough gets going”. But if this year’s expo is any indication, the industry is resilient. We have almost all the major brands from the 2013 expo returning to showcase their wares in 2015. ACE EXPO’s Exhibitor list includes a who’s who of leading brands, including Komatsu, Hitachi, Kubota, Wacker Neuson, Onetrak, Semco and more.
New to ACE EXPO this year are Steelwrist, Top Hoe, Euro Auctions, Jab co, Progressive Equipment and more. These international exhibitors are bringing with them new ideas, new approaches and never before seen machinery to the Victorian market.
116 companies make up this year’s expo, and now more than ever exhibitors are looking to ‘make a deal’ with visitors. Due to its success in 2013, the favourable Green Flag Thursday will be making a return at this year’s expo. If you are in the market to purchase the latest machinery and equipment make sure you’re at the show on Thursday!
Here are just a few of the deals you will find at ACE EXPO Victoria:
KOMATSU AUSTRALIA: Purchase a Komatsu PC30MR-3 mini excavator at the ‘Show Special’ price and receive 1000 hours of servicing included.
