Mechan lifts InnoTrans presence to new heights

Martin Berry, Mechan's engineering manager.

Renowned rail depot equipment specialist, Mechan, is preparing to raise its global profile further by taking its largest stand to date at this year’s InnoTrans trade fair in Germany.

Following its busiest exhibition ever in 2016, the Sheffield-based manufacturer has committed to a bigger and more prominent space in the UK Pavilion at the bi-annual event in September.

A fully working version of Mechan’s flagship lifting jacks will form the centrepiece of its eye-catching display on stand 206F in hall 2.2. Its sales team will be on hand to update regular visitors on the progress the firm has made in the last two years and provide information on its wide range of lifting and handling products.

Mechan’s engineering manager, Martin Berry, will be heading up its InnoTrans team. He said: “It has been an eventful two years for us since InnoTrans 2016 and we are looking forward to meeting colleagues old and new in Berlin to showcase our development. We have much to talk about, not only our buy-out by France’s CIM Group, but also the launch of our new light weight jacks, designed specifically for the tram and light rail markets.”

InnoTrans, organised by Messe Berlin, will run from September 18-21. It occupies 41 halls at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds and attracts visitors from 119 countries, across all areas of the rail industry.
