Petter Etholm, President of Thomas Equipment, called U.K.'s SED 2008 Show an excellent European showcase for Thomas Skid Steer Loaders.

Thomas Equipment Inc. showcased its Thomas Skid Steer Loaders at the United Kingdom's SED 2008 Show, the national event for construction equipment that drew industry representatives from across Europe and was the best attended in the Show's 42-year history.

Petter Etholm, President of Thomas Equipment and its parent company, Osiris Corporation (OSRS), said, "We are pleased with the enthusiastic response to the Thomas Skid Steer Loader product line at SED 2008 and we look forward to demonstrating Thomas' commitment to quality and service again next year, at SED 2009."

The 2008 SED (Site Equipment Demonstration) Show, attended by a record of approximately 20,000 industry representatives, was held at the Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby.

Gilbert Bedard, Thomas Equipment's Vice President of Global Sales, said, "Thomas Skid Steer Loaders were extremely well received at the Show."

Koen Van Kemseke, Business Development Manager for Western Europe, noting the company's 65-year history, said, "Thomas Skid Steer Loaders are designed to be dependably rugged workhorses on construction sites and also meet the needs of agricultural and other industries in Europe."

The SED Show included extensive construction equipment on display and live demonstrations of skid steers, diggers, crushers, mulchers, loaders, cranes and other equipment, that SED said makes up the backbone of the UK's and Europe's construction industry.

The Thomas Booth at SED was well attended and a popular stop at the annual show. Recently, Thomas Equipment won the Best Booth Award in the heavy equipment category at the International Landscape Ontario Congress in Canada.
