Ford & Slater return from another successful year at the Ashby Show

11-07-2017, Ford & Slater Leicester


The Ashby Show 2017Ford & Slater has recently returned from a fantastic, sunny day at the Ashby Show, on Sunday July 9.

Hailed the ‘best agricultural show in the Midlands’, the Ashby Show is a Leicestershire based event which showcases livestock, machinery and entertainment for all the family.

This year Ford & Slater chose to share a stand with HGV training experts, Data Academy Ltd, and their fantastic DAF LF 250 with factory body, purchased from Ford & Slater in May of last year.

Also present on the Ford & Slater stand was the brand-new DAF XF demonstrator vehicle, enjoying its first outing since joining the team last week. Sporting the eye-catching Jamaican Blue colour, the XF caught the attention of endless visitors, with many stopping to check out the trucks for themselves or to have a chat with our sales team.

This is only the third visit Ford & Slater have made to the Ashby Show, but Sales Executive at Ford & Slater Leicester, Steve Milnes agreed that this had been the best of the bunch, saying “We can’t be sure whether it was the sunny skies or the new trucks, but our team had a fantastic day at the Ashby Show meeting lots of new people and potential customers. The New XF has definitely kept us busy!”.

We would like to offer a huge thank you to Data Academy Ltd, who were fantastic company on the day, as well as everyone who came along to see us at the show. See you all again next year!
