Trime UK has bright February after the Executive Hire Show

FOLLOWING a most productive Executive Hire Show, the cheerful Trime UK sales and marketing teams arrived back at their Cambridgeshire base clutching an armful of orders placed throughout the two days of the show.

Paul Hay Trime UK’s Managing Director, said: “This year’s Executive Hire Show was the best ever for us. We took in excess of £3million worth of lighting tower orders on the stand during the two days.

“In addition we had in-depth discussions with a major tool hire firm who are stepping up their replacement programme over to our X-Splash Wash Bays and adding them to their new outlets.”

One of the single biggest orders came from the leading event and industrial lighting tower rental specialist, Illumin8 Lights Limited. Their managing director, Neil Fenwick, handed Trime an order for ECO LED sets, evaluated at over £1/2m. Another prime event hire firm, Energy Generator Hire, passed on two significant X-ECO LED orders, one for imminent delivery and the other confirmed for later in the year.

Glendun Plant Sales, the Northern Ireland based plant sales company, has been tirelessly active in promoting the X-ECO LED throughout the Country.

Consequently, Glendun’s Dermot Cunnie arrived at the Executive Hire Show ready to place a further four orders for X-ECO units for distribution to his clients. Glendun Plant Sales is based in Dungannon and is a dealer and distributor of a wide range of plant and equipment

Although site lighting towers were the most prominent products on display, Travis Perkin’s used the show to discuss arrangements for the delivery and installation of Trime’s award winning X-Splash Wash Bays.

Travis Perkins advised Trime that they had two on-going programmes that will require X-Splash systems.

These will be for both their expanding tool hire operations and for replacing and upgrading their current wash bays. Trime conspicuously displayed their Green Apple award for the X-Splash and jubilantly told all interested people of its Green Champion accreditation.

Launched in 2007, Executive Hire Show is a national exhibition for the tools, equipment and plant hire industry. The show was held on 6th and 7th February 2019, at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

Trime manufactures, develops and markets environmentally sustainable lighting sets and water recycling wash bays for the construction and rental markets. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; their manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy.

Zero Emissions, Zero Noise: the EcoSmart ZERO welfare unit from AJC EasyCabin

THE London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory have stated that construction sites are responsible for approximately 7.5% of damaging nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, 8% of large particle emissions (PM10) and 14.5% of emissions of the most dangerous fine particles (PM2.5).

The vast majority of these emissions come from the thousands of diesel engine site equipment. Soon London will introduce a ‘Low Emission Zone’ for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) as current estimates of emissions show that NRMM is responsible for 7% of NOx emissions, 14% for PM2.5 and 8% of PM10 emissions across the Capital.

In response to these figures, one of the leading manufacturers of mobile and static temporary site cabins, AJC EasyCabin, have designed and built a range of welfare units that emits zero emissions.

Lisa Gillet, sales director of AJC Trailers, said: "According to the Carbon Brief website, the amount of carbon dioxide sent into the atmosphere last year totalled 381 million tonnes.

"For most of the past years we have been driven to reduce the carbon emissions from our products and design the most environmentally sustainable temporary site units. Our recent Green Apple Awards have confirmed our passions in this regard."

The units, all entitled the ‘EcoSmart ZERO’ were officially unveiled at the site equipment exhibition – The Executive Hire Show on 6th February 2019 at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

The EcoSmart ZERO is powered by a combination of a hydrogen gas powered fuel cell and an advanced solar power system. This means the unit operates almost totally silent and emits only pure water vapour.

The Ecosmart ZERO range has been designed to have the same user friendly operation as the standard Ecosmart welfare units, with power to run the heating, sockets, kettle and microwave coming instantly from the battery bank.

The batteries are constantly fed by the built-in hydrogen fuel cell and solar panels.

Lisa added: "Encouraged by our rental partners to push the boundaries of environmental and technological advancement, we believe that in the EcoSmart ZERO range represents the ultimate in carbon emission reduction."

Hydrogen gas is readily available through the Internet or at local gas suppliers. AJC EasyCabin can introduce user of the EcoSmart ZERO to hydrogen gas suppliers and a click and collect service is often available.

The Ecosmart ZERO fuel cell only needs periodical replacement of air filters; there are no moving parts and ground contamination from fuel spills is totally eliminated. 

To produce the EcoSmart ZERO range, AJC EasyCabin engineers worked in close collaboration with Intelligent Energy - a world leading fuel cell engineering company focused on delivering zero emission PEM fuel cell products to the automotive, UAV and stationary power markets.

Following the launch of the EcoSmart ZERO at the Executive Hire Show, AJC EasyCabin will be inviting all environmentally conscious hirers and uses of site temporary accommodation to their factory in Luton to view the features and benefits of the EcoSmart ZERO range, first hand.

Industrial cleaning equipment specialists work to improve efficiency for trades and construction

V-TUF’S 2019 product launches are designed and developed with a focus on helping those in trade and construction to work efficiently and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

Exhibiting at the Executive Hire Show on stand L26, V-TUF are offering industrial cleaning and safetyfocussed equipment since 2015.

V-TUF has established itself as a manufacturer of targeted products through its popular range of M and H class rated dust extraction vacuums and trade specific accessories.

The combat campaign

The combat tagline was introduced through the organisation’s print and online promotions last year, and underlined their intentions to target dust, flood and dirt in commercial markets.

All of the ‘Combat Dust’ dust extraction vacuums are industry rated - HEPA H13 for M-class and H14 for H-class vacuums - guaranteeing the machines’ extraction efficiency and ensuring the compliance of onsite workers during extraction efforts.

The 110v/240v MINI is a compact M-class rated extraction vacuum that features a high visibility hose and cable, to assist in minimising trip hazards on site. 18KPA of suction power and washable filters demonstrate the focus on time and cost-saving capabilities which is carried throughout the range.

The soon-to-be-launched M-class MINI PLUS builds on the practicality of the original MINI with an 18-litre-bag capacity, compared with the original M-class MINI’s 8-litre-bag capacity.

For H-class-rated extraction, the 110v/240v MIDI and MIDI SYNCRO models include a 1400W industrial, bypass, twinturbine motor for increased power and faster clean up, and for additional time efficiency the SYNCRO model has an auto filter shaker feature.


Trade-specific time-saving accessories will become an increased part of the V-TUF range, such as the Cobra shave hook accessory launched last year for the painting and decorating market.

The ‘Combat Grime’ category includes both hot and cold water pressure cleaning equipment; built, developed and tested in house to guarantee the longevity of the machine before reaching the customer.

Both electric and fuel-based machines feature thermal protection valves and additional safety features such as oversized pumps or low oil alerts to help the user protect the machine and reduce potential costly repairs or spares requirements.

2019 will see the addition of compact battery-powered pressure cleaning equipment and accessories for industrial cleaning specialists. With each of the new models designed with time e ciency and cleaning freedom in mind.

As part of their 2019 event calendar, V-TUF will be exhibiting at the Executive Hire Show on 6 and 7 February, as well as Toolfair at Event City in Manchester on 14 and 15 March to conclude the company’s first quarter.

Mecalac to showcase latest range at the Executive Hire Show

Stand J22

MECALAC Construction Equipment UK Ltd, a global leader in compact equipment design and manufacture, will showcase a number of models from its industry-leading product portfolio at the show.

Alongside the all-new 6MDX cabbed site dumper, Mecalac will exhibit its updated MBR-71 pedestrian roller and TV-1200 tandem compaction roller on Stand J22.

Each model has been designed to provide operators with a reliable and robust hire solution.

Paul Macpherson, UK Sales and Marketing Director at Mecalac CEUK, said: “As one of the UK’s most renowned rental exhibitions, we’re looking forward to showcasing our latest products, updates and equipment technologies at the 2019 Executive Hire Show. Being part of the show provides the perfect platform to share exciting plans for the future.”


The perfect blend of stylish design and functionality, the 6MDX sets the standards in site safety. With a six-tonne payload, operating weight of 4,950kg and top speed of 28kph, operators benefit from short-cycle times, outstanding manoeuvrability and best-in-class productivity.

A highly-efficient 3.4-litre, 55kw Perkins 854 IIIB-compliant engine generates 424Nm of torque, while DPF exhaust after-treatment (with passive regeneration) meets international emissions standards. Additional features include next generation Power Brakes (driven by the main hydraulic system), which deliver an improved feel alongside an all-new dashboard design and industry-leading safety credentials.


Specifically designed for the compaction of granular and asphalt materials, the single-drum MBR-71 is perfectly suited to applications including highway repair, footpaths, cycle lanes, playgrounds and landscaping environments. Its proven design provides superb balance, ensuring best-in-class manoeuvrability in tight spaces.

For 2019, the rental-tough roller has been redesigned to incorporate hydrostatic drive, alongside a series of additional engineering updates. Removing the clutch and belt arrangement results in fewer maintenance requirements, while a 35% increase in water tank volume has significantly increased working range. Moving operating controls to the handle will ensure safer and more ergonomically-friendly operation, complementing a new spring-applied hydraulic release handbrake, which activates when pressure is lost to maximise operator safety.


A proven favourite for rental professionals worldwide, the TV1200 is arguably one of the toughest tandem rollers on the market. Alongside a rugged design to withstand rental conditions, the model’s all-new vacuum formed bonnet, revised side arm, water-cooled engine and mass exciter system guarantee outstanding performance to reduce the number of required passes.

Full specification includes a one-metre drum width, operating weight of 2,925kg, static liner load of 12.18kg/cm and VPM of 2,880/3,360.

Two frequencies provide enhanced versatility, while an optional pressure-fed water sprinkler delivers greater flow regulation for improved cleaning capability.
