On 10 June at the Henry Ford Centre on the campus of Loughborough University, a new UK Construction Equipment Sector Study will be launched.

Commissioned by the CEA, in partnership with the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS), the Report will provide new estimates on the size and economic worth of our sector – and identify the key drivers for future growth.

CEA Chief Executive, Rob Oliver, believes the report could represent a big step forward in raising the profile of the UK construction equipment sector, “We believe there has been significant growth in our sector since we last commissioned an independent study some years ago – and there are now new technology drivers and challenges that we need to address. The Report will, I am sure, help to frame not only the CEA’s forward strategy but also inform Government on how they can best address our causes and concerns. I would urge everyone with an interest in the future of our sector to attend the conference and to read the Report.”
