Conference commemorates Finlay’s 65-year heritage and commitment to a strong future
FINLAY – one of the pioneering forces in the mobile crushing and screening industry –recently welcomed around 200 guests from across Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia to their World Dealer Conference in Barcelona, Spain. The event served as an opportunity for Finlay to commemorate their 65-year heritage and their commitment to a strong and innovative future.
‘A pivotal focus of this year’s conference was to reinforce the family mentality that has been at the heart of Finlay throughout our 65-year history,’ said Matt Dickson, business line director for Finlay.
‘Finlay represents more than just a name or a logo; it’s a symbol of excellence, innovation, and integrity. It represents the hard work and steady commitment of our team and our distributors around the world. It’s a legacy that we’ve built together, one machine at a time and one satisfied customer at a time.’
The conference was marked by a series of presentations that delved into Finlay’s product offerings, operations, quality management, future solutions, digital journey, after-sales support, marketing strategies, global parts support, rental opportunities, and the support that Terex Financial Solutions provide for Finlay customers.
A keynote address was given by Al Peasland, head of technical and innovation partnerships at F1 Williams Racing (formerly responsible for the fastest-ever pit change) and who previously spent a decade as a senior member of Red Bull. His inspiring words resonated with the Finlay guests, emphasizing the significance of continuous innovation, the pursuit of engineering excellence, fostering collaboration and engagement, and, most importantly, the spirit of teamwork.
‘Just as important as our strong history and strong future are strong relationships between our distribution network and our engineering, production, and support teams at our manufacturing facility,’ said Mr Dickson. ‘Sustaining these is integral to success. Our World Dealer Conference not only celebrated our storied past but also fostered a sense of togetherness and mutual growth, laying the foundations for a bright and innovative future ahead.’
