“Return to play”
Sep 10th and 11th wasn’t only an exciting weekend for Mayo and Tyrone fans! It saw the return of the long anticipated CQMS trade show event. As the proverbial dust settles, we owe it to the construction industry to reflect on the recent event. This was the first trade show in two years and provided the opportunity for new and old faces to come together again. The show brings together industry leaders and provides vendors a chance to showcase new machinery and concepts.
Given the chance to once again support the construction industry and IPCA, Capitalflow was delighted to be the headline sponsor of the CQMS event. It has always been a positive event to attend, but to be headline sponsor was a proud moment for us. We are passionate about being available to listen and talk to our customers, to really hear their story and background. Meeting people is what we are good at. Helping people achieve their business goals is what we excel at. Our two days over the weekend at the show was enthusiastically represented by the Capitalflow team. Covid has presented us with problems since March ’20, but being able to chat face to face with customers, suppliers and brokers, while socially distanced, has been fantastic! On reflection the show was a real success for our team. Forming new relationships, building on current ones and coming away with some solid deals. We were also delighted to showcase our new dealer and customer portal which allows both to apply online, and manage and view status of existing and multiple deals
High ticket sales and enquiries indicated the show was not to be missed. One of the highlights of the CQMS event was the area of environmental sustainability in the form of soil stabilisation, a hugely beneifical process, that allows companies to become more sustainable by reusing excavated soil from sites. Shannon Valley, one of Ireland’s leading civil engineering and construction contractors, hosted a panel discussion where speakers, including Minister Damien English Brian Coogan, Machinery Movers, Michael English, MD of Shannon Valley and Ronan Horgan, CEO of Capitalflow, discussed supporting and developing methods of recycling on site for construction companies. They also highlighted the pressing need for more EPA Recycling Licenses in the sector in order to increase sustainability and lessen CO2 emissions. Capitalflow is delighted to be a part of this environemtally focused discussion, as ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and supporting our customers to become more sustainable is a key focus for Capitalflow for 2021 and beyond.
