Jungheinrich UK’s event hire division has been awarded contracts to supply material handling equipment for Farnborough International Airshow and the Royal International Air Tattoo.

Vehicles are already on site in Farnborough, assisting 50 personnel from structures supplier De Boer in constructing colossal ‘village’ of temporary single and double story buildings.

Peter Spruce, MD of De Boer, said: “The Airshow is very important to De Boer and we have to be able to rely on thoroughly professional supply partners. I am pleased to say that Jungheinrich provides great service and an excellent product – so they meet this demand perfectly.”

The result of the cooperation between De Boer and Jungheinrich will be one of the world’s largest temporary exhibition spaces.

Adam Cafe, event hire manager at Jungheinrich UK said: “To be working with an industry leader like De Boer and to supply the equipment needed to help them build such amazing structures for this world famous even is fantastic.”

The Royal International Air Tattoo is organised by the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises and features 7.5 hours of flying displays from air forces around the world.

“It’s great to work with such a high profile and well respected charity for the second year running,” continued Cafe, “and to be supplying handling equipment for one of the UK’s most popular air shows.”

Andy Darrall, ground operations manager for The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises, said: “I’m really looking forward to having Jungheinrich provide our MHE again at this year’s show.

“We feel very confident that the quality of equipment coming our way will again live up to the name of Jungheinrich and assist us in building our showground for what will be another great and exciting airshow.”

Farnborough International Airshow takes place on 11-17 July.
