SHIMPAC® SYSTEMS were pleased to attend Highways UK at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, hosting a stand for the two-day event.
Peter Rieck and Jonny Jonas (pictured above on the stand) were the original minds who developed SHIMPAC® roadshims in the 1980’s. They were supported at Highways UK 2021 by Manager Barry Andrews and sales lead Dan McIntosh with Dawn Stares and Melanie Willis.
Barry Andrews said of the exhibition: “After so many cancelled events in 2020 due to Covid-19 lockdowns and imposed travel restrictions plus working from home, there was a real buzz at the event as construction industry professionals were able to network and talk business in person again.”
He added: “One of our key aims for the event was to promote and educate SHIMPAC® SYSTEMS offering to the specialist audience in attendance for use on future highway construction project plans. Having re-designed the company website and created a film to demonstrate our roadshims at the start of 2021, it was great to be able to showcase these. We also installed a large construction model and displayed samples of the various sizes, thickness and shapes to demonstrate how versatile our ironwork seating system really is.”
As a specially engineered solution to seat and level highway ironworks more effectively than cutting down bricks, our layered system provides a strong and durable solution that can be installed quickly and easily. It is designed to last, can carry the ever-increasing weight of traffic demands and withstand the adverse weather conditions we now face in the UK.
With the highest safety accreditations, SHIMPAC® SYSTEMS fully supports and exemplifies sustainability, which was a key focus for Highways UK in 2021.
