SANY sponsor the return of the highly anticipated 70th SPOA annual dinner
SANY UK & Ireland were the proud platinum sponsors of the Scottish Plant Owners Association (SPOA) dinner on Friday night, held at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
The dinner is widely acknowledged as the premier event in the Scottish plant industry’s calendar and brings together the industry’s top decision-makers where they can celebrate and connect with the best people and companies working in the construction and plant hire sector in both Scotland and UK.
The event which had to be cancelled in 2021, was due to be held in early February but had to be re-scheduled again due to the Covid 19-related restrictions in place at the beginning of the year so it was fantastic to finally see this industry favourite take place.
Hosted by SPOA President Callum Mackintosh, the Apprentice of the Year awards were one of many highlights of the evening. Plant mechanic apprentice Callum McIntyre and plant operator apprentice Eleanor Macmillan-Currie were awarded ‘Apprentice of the Year’ in their respective fields.
President Callum Mackintosh commented: “This was a special evening for SPOA. As much as it was about celebrating the 70th anniversary milestone, however, it was also about looking ahead to the future and how apprentices like Callum and Eleanor will help to shape the future of the construction industry.”
Brian McGrane, Senior Sales Manager, from SANY UK added: “We were incredibly proud to be one of the platinum sponsors of the Scottish Plant Owners Association dinner in 2022, particularly on its 70th anniversary year. SANY UK is committed to providing industry leading machines and a dedicated parts and service solution to our customers in Scotland and across the UK and this was a fantastic opportunity for us to further establish our brand as well as support the future of the construction and plant hire industry. Well done to the SPOA on a thoroughly enjoyable event.”
The SANY SY16C was on display at the venue on the night, another first for SPOA and something which proved a real talking point.
