Post Hillhead Q&A with Steve Peterson

Written by John Whittam

On July 20, 2022

It was the first Hillhead since 2018. How did it feel to be back?

In a word, amazing. First and foremost, I want to thank each and every person who visited the Agg Pro stand.

It had been four years since the last Hillhead and I think most people will agree when I say, it felt that long too. Our offering at Agg Pro has developed so much over the last few years, notably in the form of new agreements with exciting brands such as Lippmann and Tesab.  We just couldn’t wait to show everyone.

On a personal level, I’ve really missed the face-to-face contact with friends & colleagues alike within the industry.

How did the show compare to previous years?

The show is growing each and every time we attend. More exhibitors and more guests, it really is a sight to behold.

This time around, we wanted to create a stand that showcased exactly what we represent within the quarrying and recycling industry, and also reflected our growth as a business. To be honest, I think we achieved this and then some.

A huge thank you goes out to Dromgoole & Sons for making it possible to feature the truly unique J45 with a Peaky Blinders wrap. It was a real talking point at the show.

I was delighted with how the stand was received by visitors and am incredibly proud of how the team worked together to create something really special.

Which aspects of the show were most useful to you from a business perspective?

The footfall at the show was fantastic, especially on the Wednesday where we saw lots of familiar faces and many new.

As always, Hillhead proved a great networking event and an invaluable platform for developing relationships withing the industry.

We love speaking to customers and our goal is always the same – to offer advice to help them operate as efficiently as possible. At the end of the day, that is what we all want to do so we can maximise the profitability of our businesses.

Also, with the nature of our industry, it is hugely beneficial to see in person the sheer magnitude of some of the equipment. For example, the GIPO Roller Screener RR130 really needs to be seen to be appreciated.

It’s what I like to call a ‘beast’ of a machine and I’m just so glad we got to show people this exceptional piece of kit in all its glory.

What are your final thoughts from Hillhead 2022?

I’d really like to reiterate how grateful I am to everyone who visited our stand.

We pride ourselves in providing unrivalled service and aftersales support from a team of long-standing, dedicated employees who are passionate about what they do. It was great to get to showcase this and let so many people see it with their own eyes.

Business aside, after a challenging few years for a lot of us personally, it was really good to get together as an industry and celebrate everything that’s great about quarrying, construction and recycling.

Will you be attending in 2024?

Absolutely. We’ve certainly set the bar high this year but rest assured, we intend to top this in 2024!

We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
