2019 has been an incredible year for us, supplying such great events such as Jalsa Salana, Thruxton, Carfest South, Brighton Pride, Love Supreme, & many more! One of our biggest achievements for the year would have to be supplying toilets and showers to The Game Fair for the first time. The event is held at Hatfield House on the last weekend of July & attracted more than 100,000 visitors from all over the world. Due to the clientele & scale of the event we were contracted in to provide large amounts of high quality toilets across our recirculated toilet trailer fleet as well as our new luxury 3 bay & 6 bay vacuum pods. Alongside supplying large amounts of equipment we also had a team of 30 support staff cleaning & maintaining the toilets, despite the terrible weather the event was a success. For next year we have landed a few new contracts, ‘Wings 2020’, ‘Alexandra Palace’ and a lot more in the pipeline!
We are looking forward to seeing what 2020 has in store for us and would like to thank you all for your continued support throughout 2019! We wish you a successful and prosperous New Year!
