rocket-carTaking place from 19-22 March at the NEC, the International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) is shaping up to be the best ever, with many exhibitors planning product launches, exciting exhibits, live demonstrations and rewarding competitions.

The supersonic Bloodhound vehicle will be wowing visitors to the Linde Material Handling stand in the Skills Apprenticeships Zone at IMHX. Bloodhound SSC (SuperSonic Car) is a jet- and rocket-powered car designed to go faster than the speed of sound and set a new World Land Speed Record of 1000mph. With the car being some 14m long and weighing over 7 tonnes, the Bloodhound team – headed up by Project Director, Richard Noble, and the car’s driver, Royal Air Force Fighter Pilot, Andy Green – has been relying on Linde and its Forklift Truck Hire Team, one of the project’s sponsors, to load and unload the vehicle from an articulated lorry using one of its H50 counterbalance trucks as Bloodhound is transported to various events around the country.

With many exhibitors using IMHX as the launch pad for new products and services and over 40 first-time exhibitors already confirmed among the show’s expected 400 stands, visitors are guaranteed to see a whole host of new technologies and innovative ideas for materials handling. The latest generation of reach trucks from Doosan – the 7-Series – will make its UK début on stand 19H120 at IMHX.
