Remi Tourtet, Export Sales Manager - Thwaites Ltd

Can you briefly describe your activity?

We are a manufacturer of 4x4 articulated site dumpers. We are actually celebrating 80 years of production this year.

What are your growth perspectives and your innovation drivers to respond to the wide range of projects arising in France and all over the world?

With a mature range that already suits the different needs of our markets, including the French one, we are focusing our development towards better operator’s welfare and safety. Continuous product improvement is also part of our DNA so we can continue to offer the best quality in the market. The more stringent emission regulations Euro Stage 5 are also round the corner and most of the range will need reengineering accordingly. 

What are the trends in your field market?

Feedback from our distributor network tells us that customers are looking for improved safety and better operator’s welfare. These were the drivers for the development of our latest models, the 6T and 9T with cabs.

What are the main highlights/ features planned on INTERMAT Paris 2018?

The 6T with cabs is being exhibited to our French customers for the first time at the Intermat fair. 

We are also showing a unique rail-road machine based on our machine.

What do you expect to get out of your participation at INTERMAT Paris 2018?

We are working with our French network to promote the range to our existing and prospective customers. All our customers are important to us and the Intermat fair is a great place to meet them face-to-face and discuss their particular needs.
