An employee of a Stafford plant hire company got a surprise when he attended an international quarrying and recycling show recently, walking away with the top prize from an exhibitors stand.
Thomas Hammond, a mechanic at A P Webb Plant Hire Ltd, attended the three day show at the Hillhead Quarry in Buxton in June. The company is based in Common Road, Stafford and supplies specialist plant to the rail, construction and civil engineering sectors.
Exhibiting together at the show was Wolverhampton based Donghua Limited, the UK arm of one of the world’s largest chain manufacturers, and Chain+Conveyor, a key partner for Donghua and the largest stockist of conveyor chain and sprockets in the UK.
Chain+Conveyor had designed a game called ‘Sprocket of Fortune’ which became a real crowd pleaser at the show. Sponsored by Donghua, the simple but effective game attracted immense interest. By spinning the wheel, players could win either chain shaped air fresheners, branded enamel mugs or enter a raffle to win a large screen 3D TV & Digi Box with Blue-Ray.
Thomas Hammond’s winning ticket was picked by one of Chain+Conveyor’s customers: Padraig McDermott, regional sales manager for Telestack Ltd – specialists in bulk materials handling equipment. Representatives from Donghua and Chain+Conveyor visited A P Webb last week to deliver the star prize to the thrilled employee.
