By now, Brexit should have been done and dusted, but alas, the political turmoil not only continues, but deepens, and it is definitely not good for business; nor is the prolonged absence of a Northern Ireland Executive at Stormont.
The political and economic landscape, whichever way you look at it, could do with a few new, fresh thinking ‘designers’, but we all know that’s not going to happen any day soon; we simply have to keep our heads down, our chins up, and carry on in the hope that something better might appear on the horizon. Which is what most of us in the plant, civil engineering, construction and quarrying sectors are doing – and doing well, thank you!
Just take a look through this latest issue of Plant & Civil Engineer; it’s crammed full of positive stories from all corners of the industry, despite the underlying concerns and challenges.
We take a look at a very successful Executive Hire show, and we look forward to a record breaking bauma 2019; we also have a preview of the forthcoming Balmoral Show and of the Vertikal Days Exhibition for those involved in all types of access and working at height equipment – yes, there is lots going on, and lots to look forward to.
We also feature a number of very encouraging ‘customer focus’ stories, as well as getting the ‘view from the cab’ of the latest Hidromek and Mecalac excavators, and we find out why GB Landscapes are big fans of the Kubota range of machines, in addition to reporting on what was the world’s largest ever sale of excavators at Euro Auctions site in Leeds.
Perhaps by the time you are reading this, all our Brexit woes may have
been resolved – but we won’t hold our breath!
