Liftex â€“the renowned lift exhibition held every three years in the ExCeL London, houses exhibitors made up of a collection of lift companies specialising in lift installation, repair, maintenance, controls, parts/spares supply and manufacture for all manner of lifts, from heavy duty, industrial goods lifts to residential disability access lifts.
Having previously exhibited at Liftex in 2013, Hydratec are looking forward to the 2016 exhibition in May. Please come and visit us on stand E50.
Last weekend, Saturday the 27th of June, Hydratec took part in the 23rd annual Lift Industry Kart Challenge. Every year, the challenge sees renowned lift & escalator companies and suppliers come together to compete in a purely fun, (albeit tough) 4 hour endurance race with a team of at least 4 drivers.
Held at Buckmore Park Circuit, the Hydratec team were able to experience the twists and turns of tarmac once driven around by the likes of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton. With a capability to reach 80mph and a Honda 390cc engine, the karts were by no means slow, and feeling competitive, we took the challenge seriously, getting in plenty of practice before the main race.
Hydratec entered two teams for the race, and after a strenuous, exhilarating 4 hours of racing, pit stops and driver changes, our teams came in at a respectable 9th and 17th place. It was a fantastic day, and a great way to bring together all those from the lift industry.
