Above: Phil Barlow our General Manager and Richard Martin the Area Sales Manager presented Paul Ackland of CPT with an engraved silver bowl to mark the occasion.
Padley & Venables Ltd were pleased to be able to support Consolidated Power Tools recently as they celebrated 20 years of successful trading.
The celebration took the form of an open day at their Cardiff premises where suppliers and customers could meet the team from CPT.
CPT look forward to continuing and developing the close working relationship between the companies.
Having recently returned from exhibiting at Bauma Conexpo Africa 2015 in Johannesburg, South Africa, we wish to thank all our existing and new customers for attending the show and visiting our booth. It was the first time for Padley & Venables to exhibit at this event, which has only been held once before.
The first edition was held under the name of Bauma Africa, and it celebrated a successful premiere taking up 60,000 square meters of exhibition space with 754 exhibitors from 38 countries and 14,700 visitors from more than 110 countries.
We presented our 3 product groups: Contractors’ Tools, Demolition Tools and Rock-Drilling and had considerable interest, especially in the recently launched (Intermat Paris 2015) Ninja button bits. Also the ‘Ninja’ branded baseball caps were very popular freebies and were proudly worn by many attendees of the show.
With our local distributors actively involved with the exhibition, many existing customers visited and future business relationships could be forged.
We also had some very interesting discussions and exchange of ideas with existing customers and professionals from the Rock Drilling, Mining and Construction industries about current tooling requirements and future solutions we can provide for these sectors.
According to the Bauma Conexpo Africa 2015 organisers:
“14,300 visitors from 75 countries attended the second edition of the International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles. 13 percent of the visitors came from outside of South Africa with a significant increase in percentage from sub-Saharan Africa.”
It could only be added that the quality of the visitors from South Africa and the rest of Africa had been very good and we should be able to develop some fruitful future business relationships.
We are looking forward to attending the 3rd edition of the show in 2018.
Darren Bradwell and Steve Harper from Padley & Venables, paid a visit to our customer – Lifa AB at their main office in Falun, north-west of Stockholm, Sweden – to help them celebrate their 20th Anniversary in September.

We have recently returned from another successful Intermat Show 2015 in Paris.
Our new Ninja Button bit was launched at the show, a product suitable for most hard rock, top-hammer drilling applications. It is available in sizes ranging from 48mm to 64mm.
The bits feature distinct angle-faced grooves and deeper lateral flushing flutes, which aid in rock removal from the bit face and increase drilling speeds The NEW Ninja Button Bits have earned good reviews in the field, with users saying the bits drill straighter.
Steve Harper, product manager for Padley & Venables points out that straighter drilling also lessens the stress on rods, shanks and couplings that come behind the bits.
The open-face design of the bits enable the rock to fall into the void between the three face tips before being crushed, which adds directional stability and helps create the straighter hole.
After being a regular exhibitor at Bauma Munich trade exhibitions, Padley & Venables decided to participate at Bauma China 2014 (November 25-28, Shanghai New International Expo Centre) for the first time.
Bauma China with 300,000m2 of exhibition space, more than 3,100 exhibitors and over 191,000 visitors is the biggest trade show for construction equipment, machinery and building material.
After a long 18 hour trip from Sheffield to Manchester via Paris to Shanghai, our exhibition team (Glyn Storey, Steve Harper and Hans-Joachim Kopp) reached our stand in Hall N2.110, which was part of the CEA UK Pavilion.
Our stand was a corner stand – based in an ideal location near the entrance and exit doors of the hall and in the main walkway between halls N1 and N3. We were displaying pictures and product samples of our 3 product groups: rock-drilling, demolition- and contractors tools.
As soon as the show opened, we had our first visitor from Russia asking for rock-drilling brochures and distributor opportunities for Russia. As the show continued over the next few days, we had a good mix of existing and potential customers turning up.
We had a great opportunity to meet up with customers from countries as varied as Singapore, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia and even a few European customers from Ireland, Denmark and UK turned up.
We also made some progress in finding more distributors for China with the meetings at Bauma to be followed up during the coming weeks.
Overall our first participation at Bauma China 2014 can be considered a great success, and we are looking forward to returning to Bauma China 2016 in two years’ time. We were also very pleased with the professional organisation of the CEA UK Pavilion, Bauma China 2014 and the friendly hospitality of the Chinese people.
Padley & Venables of Sheffield are pleased to announce the launch of a new Product – Dual Drive Shank Rods.
Launched in Sweden in May 2014 at Maskin Expo at the Aronsborg Conference Center, P&V are sure that this new product will become an invaluable tool in the Rock Drilling industry.
Maskin Expo is a general equipment exhibition encompassing farming and forestry machinery as well as rock drilling.
This years’ Aronsborg event was organized by Global Drilling in association with Sandvik and Atlas under the umbrella of BEF, the Rock Drilling companies association. Many of its members were invited and exhibited.
Dual Drive Shank Rods
Designed to minimise the problems associated with premature breakage and the resulting downtime, the revolutionary design of the Dual-Drive Shank Rod isolates the threads from bending forces created by bit deflection while drilling, greatly reducing the stress on threads.
Forces are transmitted more effectively to the face of the bit through the skirt and body of the bit, therefore reducing exposure of the threads to potentially damaging percussive forces.
Dirt and rock debris are tough on threads; our unique design protects the threaded connection from exposure to debris while exiting the hole, this extends thread life.
Matek (Ystad Maskiner) exhibited some of our range of demolition tools, at Maskin Expo.
Earlier this year one of our Sales Managers Mr Pablo Padillo was on a business trip to visit mines in Chile alongside Gabriel Quinteros from our exclusive distributor, SIMMA S.A.
By pure chance they met up with the 33 miners who underwent the ordeal in MINA SAN JOSE in Copiapo area when the accident occurred back in 2010.
They were being a filmed for a TV spot/commercial for a local bank!
It was a great honour to meet them all!
