Straightpoint ensures high profile at LiftEx 2012
Hampshire, UK-based Straightpoint, a designer and maker of load monitoring devices and crane scales, has signed up as attendee bag sponsor for the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association’s (LEEA) annual LiftEx trade show. Now in its eighth year, LiftEx 2012 takes place 29-30 November at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK.
LiftEx is the UK’s only trade show dedicated exclusively to overhead lifting and safe work at height, covering overhead cranes and hoists; below-the-hook devices; control technologies; associated training, test, examination and verification services; and more.
Straightpoint has been a member of the LEEA for three years and LiftEx 2012 will be its fifth year of exhibiting at the show.
“LiftEx is a great exhibition,” said David Ayling (pictured), director, Straightpoint. “As it’s a trade association exhibition, it targets exactly the right people for us. All the key people we need to speak to from the industry are there. Plus it’s great exposure and a fantastic opportunity for Straightpoint to be able to demonstrate our products to visitors and give them a hands-on experience.”
Straightpoint will use LiftEx to show its Radiolink Plus loadcell, Loadlink Plus loadcell, shackle loadcells, Mini Weigher Plus crane scales and the new Wireless Centre of Gravity System, “which we believe to be the world’s first off-the-shelf system of its type,” Ayling added.
Straightpoint has offices in the UK and North America but supplies its products to markets the world over.
