“This was the first time we had attended the show and from previous research of the companies who were listed as exhibiting, we had a strong indication that we expected this to be the cream of the emergency vehicle manufactures. This soon proved to be the case with the likes of NAFFCO and Bristol VM from the UEA holding large stands set as focal points across the 3 halls, these were joined by Gimaex from France, REDA from Saudi Arabia, New Age from India and WH Bence from the United Kingdom.” said Garry Cannon, Senior Sales Executive for Dover Vanguard.

“Intersec Middle East was, in terms of marketing the Dover Vanguard brand into new markets, a great success. The ability to converse directly with these large companies, who are out manufacturing the United Kingdom equivalents and being invited by them to discuss the many varied products that we can supply has helped to strengthen the brand on a world stage.” said Stewart Plant, Marketing Manager for Dover Vanguard.

Senior Sales Executive Garry Cannon, looked at the issues of expansion due to high temperatures that the Fire tenders would face on a daily basis and the extreme stresses the roller shutter systems would be placed under. By modifying the build and fitting he was able to supply the same quality, that is standard with the N35 and has come to be known as one of the best shutters in the industry, but in a way that would enable a bespoke solution to the issues it may face.
