“It was terrific to welcome our customers and distributors to our open day and showcase the capability of our equipment—nothing beats seeing them in action,” said Barry O’Hare, business line director, EvoQuip. “The feedback from all attendees has been overwhelmingly positive, with a particular appreciation for the opportunity to witness the Caiman shredders working side-by-side in two different applications. We are grateful to our Irish distributor FJS Plant Agri & Groundcare and their customer Behan’s Quarry for the use of their site and their collaboration prior to and during the event, they couldn't have been more helpful. Our team came away feeling very positive with a deep appreciation for everyone who attended and very enthusiastic about our future.”
