Arbortec had the pleasure of exhibiting at the APF Show last weekend and despite the gale force winds and standard British weather the show went off with a bang. Arbortec not only showcased its entire range of chainsaw protective clothing, boots, apparel and bags but launched three new products that will become a part of the Arbortec range in the new year, including, women's fit trousers, custom sizing/stitching and the brand new product line and trouser concept, Arborflex.
Arbortec not only exhibited at the show but had six of our fantastic distributors exhibit themselves, Honey Brothers, FR Jones and Son, Sorbus, Buxtons, Forest and Arb and Treekit. With an abundance of juicy arb goodies up for grabs and attendees rocking up with their shopping lists of kit, the guys and girls on the stands were flat out. A huge thank you to all our distributors for supporting Arbortec at the show and working with us to make the whole experience a success. An extra little shout out as well to the lovely chaps from the Unstable bar and Honey Bros for keeping us hydrated throughout the 3 days!!
With the APF being the UK's largest forestry and tree care industry show the turn out was fantastic and support for the Arbortec brand was overwhelming. A big big thank you to all the amazing ladies and gents that came by the stand to talk to us about the brand, give feedback and see all the shiny new products. To say thanks we hosted several competitions to win six Go Pros, two each day and a DJI Drone on the final day of the show, the entries steadily started rolling in and seven lucky winners grabbed themselves some great kit for documenting their tree climbing ventures. Congratulations to all our winners!
The APF Show is a fantastic event to be apart of and amazing to see the different sectors within our industries all come together in one location; the world championship pole climbers shooting to the top in 11 seconds, the enormous Husqvarna demo arena teaching industry best practice with their equipment, insanely talented chainsaw carvers creating stunning works of art, coppicers, educators, Stihl Timbersports, the vast array of jaw dropping machinery and of course the attendees that turn out in full force come rain or shine to make the most of the three days.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting each and every one of you, catching up with old friends and making new. This was Arbortec’s second time exhibiting at the show and it was very sad to be packing up the stands and waving goodbye for another two years. Roll on APF 2020, we can’t wait to be back with another two years of exciting, innovative and colourful fresh garms and concepts under our belt.
