Last week (15th June 2023) at the country’s premier plant machinery show, Plantworx in Peterborough, the announcement of CESAR’s 600,000th protected machine was made. Suneeta Johal, CEO of show hosts, the Construction Equipment Association, was on hand to present to MANITOU a symbolic CESAR ID plate numbered 600,000.
Receiving the award were Mark Ormond, Managing Director, Peter Smyth, Sales Director, David Clark, Product Manager and Chloe Tapp, Marketing Manager.
Mark Ormond said, ‘We have been supporters of the CESAR Scheme since its inception and recognise its part in reducing theft. We are delighted to be the manufacturer of the machine which has reached this incredible milestone and will continue to support CESAR!’
CESAR’s offering was strengthened by the addition of CESAR ECV which allows quick and easy confirmation of a machine’s emissions status. More recently the introduction of the next generation of Ultra High-Frequency RFID transponder means that in the market today there really is no competition to CESAR.
Kevin Howells, MD of DATATAG ID, the technology partner to the CESAR Scheme had this to say ‘I want to thank MANITOU for their continued support of the CESAR Scheme, they were one of the first to recognise the benefit to their customers and continue to be an ambassador tor the scheme. He went on to say CESAR ECV has been a real boost to the value of the scheme and is mandated on SO many major infrastructure schemes here in the UK. Our next-generation UHF transponders, unique in their security features, are the latest innovation that keeps the CESAR Scheme and its DATATAG technology ahead of any competitors.
