Viby preparing for UK growth

Viby Attachment is using Hillhead as a further boost for a record increase in UK market activity this year.
The Danish attachment manufacturer has already seen UK sales increase by more than thirty per cent in the first quarter of 2012 compared with the same time last year, and it believes Hillhead will help to reinforce this growth trend.
Andrew Little, UK sales manager for Viby, said: "During the recession many customers have understandably tightened their purse strings, and either delayed buying new equipment or bought cheaper.
"The cheaper options, however, typically mean a compromise in quality. We've always had a reputation for high quality and, as a result, we are now seeing a significant uplift in sales of our products.
"Viby attachments are, unashamedly, built to last, so in the medium- to- long-term, will provide unrivalled value for money. I think our customers recognise this."
Viby will be showcasing a range of its attachments at Hillhead, both on its stand (B28) and in the quarry demo area.
Visitors will be able to see a selection of Viby's unique High-Tip and GP buckets for wheeled loaders, which have each experienced a major growth in interest from the UK waste & recycling markets as well as the traditional construction and earthmoving sectors.
Viby will also display a heavy duty rock bucket, one of which is also likely to be working in the quarry demo area on one of its customers' excavators.
Volvo has also confirmed that it will be using a 3m³ Viby High-Tip bucket with Top Grab on a new L60G wheeled loader in the demo area, and Bell will also be giving a Viby bucket a run-out on one of its demo loaders.
Little said: "Hillhead is always an excellent exhibition, and it has fallen at just the right time for us – when interest from UK customers who recognise the value of durability is at an all-time high."
