Workshop Manufacturer Celebrates New Products at Record Breaking Trade Event

Bott Ltd, the leading manufacturer of workshop equipment and storage systems, is delighted to have been a part of The International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX 2013) held at Birmingham’s NEC. The event broke all records with the highest ever footfall of over 19,500 visitors & a record 412 exhibitors.

Bott launched their new ‘Bestsellers Catalogue’ that displays all the top selling Bott products in one compact offering. The Bott team were also able to introduce visitors to the new Cubio Pincode Locking System, available as a factory fit option on all Cubio drawer units.

Cubio Pinlock is a number code lock that can replace the standard cylinder lock. The drawer lock mechanism is released automatically when the PIN code is entered and no further action is required. One touch of the ‘OK’ button will lock the cabinet manually and the system automatically locks after 8 hours.

John Nicoletti, from Linde Material Handling Scotland Ltd, visited the stand following up by placing an order for a workshop. He said; “'I visited the Bott stand at IMHX as I have a current project to fit out with a new workshop. The quality of the product on the stand and the service of the Bott representatives reassured me that Bott is the solution for Linde'

Mandy Bickle, Head of Sales at Bott Ltd said; “Our Bestsellers Catalogue has been very well received and our new pincode product really is a revolution in security for our customers and something that they have been asking for. Up to 100 unique 4 to 8 digit user codes can be created, plus a customer defined master, and programming software for MS Windows is available as an option too. We were pleased to be able to launch it at this exhibition, especially as the turnout really showcased our new product and our sponsorship involvement with the guest of honour, Bloodhound SSC.”

IMHX 2013 was opened by world land speed record breaker, Richard Noble OBE, who is Project Director for the latest record-attempting vehicle, Bloodhound SSC (SuperSonic Car) of which Bott Ltd are a product sponsor.

The 14m-long, jet and rocket-powered car was displayed throughout IMHX in the show’s Skills & Apprenticeships Zone and Richard gave a fascinating presentation to update visitors with the latest news about the car, which will attempt to pass the 1000mph mark. Bott hosted Richard on their stand as he had a look at some of the new products that Bott will be sending to the engineering team over the next few months, including the Cubio range with Pincode Locking System.
