Roaring success at CQMS

Roaring success at CQMS


Exhibitors, dealers and buyers alike enjoy the first ever Machinery Movers Magazine’s Construction and Quarry Machinery Show (CQMS).

The two-day event in Tullamore, Ireland, attracted nearly 10,000 people on 17th and 18th April and was proudly sponsored by Close Brothers Commercial Finance.

Superb weather conditions kept all major exhibitors and visitors in good spirits throughout and both machinery users and buyers were able to view a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment in action.

Adrian Madden, from Close Brothers Commercial Finance said: “It was a fantastic show and the atmosphere was brilliant, there was a real buzz. We’ve noticed a growing sense of optimism in the construction market and we could clearly see the appetite to invest in new machinery.

“Amongst the many orders placed on the day we were thrilled to have been able to approve funding there and then for a number of new pieces of kit that were on display in authentic surroundings.”

Close Brothers Commercial Finance held an evening drinks reception after the first day at The Copper Pot Still in Tullamore. Here, exhibitors and guests were able to network further and meet the Close Brothers team.

Mr Madden added: “We were delighted to be headline sponsors of the show and would like to express our thanks to Brian Coogan and the team at Machinery Movers for organising a truly excellent event. Here’s to CQMS’17.”
