UKAP once again exhibited at the UK’s only dedicated tipper and tanker show last month
The beautiful North Yorkshire town of Harrogate is the setting for the annual Tip-Ex Show. The small town welcomes the steady flow of tankers, trucks and tippers and shuns the traditional ‘No Trucks’ in the town centre. Exhibits were scattered around the town including outside the Majestic Hotel, surrounding the International Centre and lining the town centre gardens.
Tip-Ex and Tank-Ex are the only show within the UK dedicated to the manufacturers of tippers and large scale tankers. The show is always well attended and this year was no disappointment. Attendees included manufacturers, body builders, parts and accessory specialists, industry experts and the new transport minister. Andrew Jones has stressed that his top priority is the delivery of the road infrastructure as announced last year. This includes the addition of new lanes to major roads, resurfacing and building an infrastructure for the future.
On the UKAP stand we showcased our latest DAF Euro 6 tipper wiring harness kit. The kit has been specially developed in line with the Euro 6 directive, is IP rated up to IP67 and all the connectors are super sealed. Also on display were high powered LED work lamps, LED driving lamps and warning lamps.
