Geotech Environmental Inc, Denver, Colorado is one of Van Walt's key suppliers. As a company they are constantly developing new and improved equipment so, as part of our on-going commitment to work closely with our key suppliers, we felt it was time to visit again to see for ourselves the latest equipment that's available for our customers.
Tom, Rental Sales & Technical Support and Tracey, Marketing took up the challenge - Denver is not a destination for a weekend!

July is already fully subscribed and we are now taking bookings for September and November. If you or your colleagues want to increase your knowledge and practical on-site project management skills - book now.
Well according to Sir Michael Pitt, on behalf of the Government, we should all be taking the risk of flooding far more seriously.
Sir Michael will soon publish his recommendations on what lessons should be learned from the unprecedented flooding last summer when more than 7,000 people were rescued from flood waters by the emergency services. He is calling for a system of public monitoring to be introduced.
Renting remediation, soil and groundwater monitoring equipment is a growing part of our business - but we want to get better. So we recently sent, to all our rental customers, a questionnaire asking for feedback on our rental product range and service. We were delighted with the number and quality of the responses - highlighting the positives and some areas where there is 'room for improvement'.
Nicola Rees of ERM, Edinburgh, a regular Van Walt rental customer, completed our on-line questionnaire, her details went into a prize draw and Nicola was the lucky winner of a Marks & Spencer Gift Card worth £50.00. Congratulations and enjoy.
Well we are! Yvonne and Vincent recently attended Inspirational Leadership Training in Leeds, run by LDL - a specialist in getting people to outperform themselves. "I wasn't really sure what to expect," confesses Yvonne. "But we gained some real understanding and techniques for building confidence and self-belief in people; connecting personal goals to business goals and how to inspire creativity and innovation within a team."
Eire is a very important market to us - that's why we have recently spent and will continue to spend time visiting our customers there. Just because it's 'over-the-water' and some sales are in a different currency - each and every customer is crucial to us and it's our aim to foster a relationship that is the same as if they were next door.
