On 15 & 16 September 2017, VERMEER hosted an HDD Rodeo and Customer event at their regional offices in the Netherlands. The event was attended by close to 400 visitors from Europe, Middle-East and Africa regions. 52 teams participated, representing 13 different countries. Included were 3 teams from South Africa, who travelled more than 9000 kilometres for the event that was held over 2 days. One of our South African teams made it through to the quarter finals of the competition. Team P&H-2 from Denmark claimed overall victory at the 2017 EMEA HDD Rodeo Championships. In addition to the drilling competition, the visitors enjoyed a full line product display, live demonstrations of grinders and chippers, carnival style games, live music, great food and much more. We hope to see you all at the next Vermeer event.
