THE UK CONCRETE SHOW 2020 - SHOW NEWS
DANFORDS BACK IN A BIG WAY AT
UKCS2020 WITH SHOW’S BIGGEST STAND
FAST GROWING HEREFORDHSIRE BASED IMPORTERS, DEALER AND SERVICE SPECIALISTS
have shown the market they mean business in 2019 and it’s same again for 2021!
Danfords is a family run business who have been
involved with supplying concrete equipment for the
past 20 years and they now have exclusive dealerships
with Cifa Concrete Pumps, Euromecc Concrete Plants,
Boom Makina Concrete Placing Booms, Poggi Low Level
Cement Silos and Concrete Batching Systems.
That’s an impressive line-up and with that sort of
product range, it’s no wonder that Danfords need the
biggest stand at Europe’s Number 1 standalone
concrete show, The UK CONCRETE Show to do it justice.
Excellent Service and Spares Availability
“Our Business thrives on excellent service with an
experienced service department and an extensive
spare parts department,” says Founder and MD, Dan
Fordham, “all Danfords staff have a “can do attitude”
making us positive in offering the service requirement
“We all know that no matter how good the quality of
the original equipment, concrete is a very heavy and
abrasive material that makes a lot of demands on the
machinery that mixes and transports it and we see our
role as vital in keeping our customers equipment in
action, so we become an essential part of their
business,” he adds.
Danfords make a leap forward
Recent years have seen Danfords make the leap
forward from dealing with solely concrete
transportation and handling to concrete production
with the expansion of their range to include wet and
dry batch, static and mobile concrete batching blants
and volumetric concrete mixers, the latter 2 both

being areas that have seen a rapid growth in the UK over the
past 5 years.
Wider range of businesses producing concrete
“There are a wider range of businesses producing concrete
than ever before and this is made possible by the all of the
new sizes and styles of equipment that are now on the
market,” comments Dan.
“Volumetric mixers, for example, are able to producing
smaller loads often required by DIY’ers at far more
economical prices than trying to supply plant batched ready
mix and they also offer other benefits - the concrete is fresh,
helpful in hot weather, and you can buy what you need rather
than ending up short and facing yet more part load charges”.
“Whatever the market needs, Danfords will be there to supply
the best equipment and to keep it running,” Dan concludes.
