Tow Show News
We are pleased to announce that Shawbrook Asset Finance will be sponsoring the Professional Recovery South Roadshow in April.
The highlight of the Tow Show was the popular ‘All Industry Display Team’ demonstrations, which were staged daily and attracted large crowds as long-time colleagues; industry expert and top IVR trainer, Nick Ovenden and John Coupland, led the team through various recovery senario’s.
Longstanding recovery specialists and main show sponsors, Shawbrook Asset Finance are this year holding a series of seminars at their stand to further support operators and their businesses. The Dedicated to Recovery, Committed to Growth seminars which will be hosted on Shawbrook stand, B75 on both days of the show will cover a range of key business issues for operators nationwide.
It’s the recovery industry social event of the year! Professional Recovery Tow Show Gala Dinner night’s are famed for their great mix of fantastic food, dazzling entertainment and social chatter! We also raise much needed funds for industry charity RISC.
Fire and Rescue Services have confirmed they will be exhibiting at this year’s Tow Show. They have signed up to the Show because of their commitment to the recovery industry in view of the success of the Staffordshire Heavy Rescue Partnership trial which has been seen as a massive success.
For the first time in it’s famous history the first stage of the Tour De France started in the UK and to celebrate we have got a strong cycling theme at this year’s Tow Show. On Thursday and Friday we have one of the worlds leading freestyle trials riders Chris Doney performing a breathtaking stunt routine.
Shawbrook’s long-standing dedication to the industry remains strong and its passion for recovery reflects that of its clients.
For over twenty years, Shawbrook’s Asset Finance team has immersed itself in the recovery market. During that time, other lenders have come and gone, or put their focus elsewhere, but Shawbrook has remained committed. The industry has changed dramatically over that time and now operators are under more pressure from more directions than ever before. New legislation such as emission zones; the changing demands from motoring groups and associations; and the increasingly competitive market means that operators need to work their equipment harder and smarter.
AVRO have stated on a recent newsletter that they will not be exhibiting at this year’s Tow Show saying that ‘the Show no longer reflects the interests of the independent recovery operator’.
