Technical Transport Products and Cash for Kids: Mission Christmas Appeal

 

Technical Transport Products are delighted to be a designated drop-off point for Cash for Kids: Mission Christmas appeal 2018.

 

 

 

At TTP and Thermo King we are committed to supporting local charities and this Christmas, Cash for Kids is asking the local community to buy one extra gift and to leave it off, unwrapped at a drop-off point.  We are proud to be one of those drop-off points!

Just leave your unwrapped gift in to the shiny box beside Darryl at the front desk before Monday 17th December and we will pass it on to the appeal.

The gifts go to local children who are suffering from poverty and who are unlikely to receive anything on Christmas Day. Cash for Kids are especially looking for gifts for babies and teenagers. Mission Christmas isn’t asking for anything big or expensive, just simple gifts that you could pick up with your weekly shop. We have included some gift ideas below.

 

We will also be holding a Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 14th December to raise money for the Mission Christmas appeal. so, why not join in and wear the ugliest jumper you can find and make a donation!

Technical Transport Products Sponsors Ballinascreen U14 Hurlers 2018

TTP are proud to sponsor Ballinascreen U14 Hurlers as they embarked on the All Ireland Féile na nGael 2018 Division 2.

Féile provides an opportunity for:

  • Clubs to experience playing against teams from other Counties/Provinces
  • Clubs to foster links with other Clubs in other Counties/Provinces
  • Counties to celebrate Gaelic games by acting as hosts

A core aim of Féile tournaments is to promote a philosophy whereby every player has the opportunity to participate and play in their respective Féile tournament at a level commensurate to their age, skills and strengths.

The Ballinascreen team was made up of 32 boys, 4 coaches and a physio.

Initially, the boys travelled to Kilnadeema, Co Galway, where they played Tommie Larkins and Naas, qualifying them to travel to Galway the next day to take part in the quarter final.

On our way to Galway!

On Saturday the boys played Kilnadeema and then Castletown Slieve Bloom and they qualified for the semi-final – we were delighted for them!

Féile na nGael 2018

On the Sunday the team travelled to Connaught where we played Kilcormac Killoughey in the semi-final. We won – we were now in the final!

Some very disappointed Ballinascreen U14 Hurlers at the Final

The boys played Naas in the final, but sadly lost out on the win. However, the boys played a magnificent game, and we could not be more proud. the boys all played with a lot of heart and showed sportsmanship throughout every game. They represented Ballinascreen impeccably well. Although we did not get the result we wanted we leave with great memories! There’s always next year boys!

Randalstown Young Farmers Club Win at Floral Art Final at Balmoral Show 2018

As a local business we are delighted to support local young people. One way we do this is by sponsoring Randalstown Young Farmers Club hoodies. We have a special relationship with Randalstown Young Farmers Club, as Kathryn’s three children have been dedicated members for a number of years.

The highlight of the Young Farmers’ calendar is, without a doubt, Balmoral Show. This year was no exception as this landmark agricultural event celebrated its 150th Show!

Members of the Young Farmers Clubs of Ulster not only attended the Balmoral Show, but participated in many events and competitions. These ranged from sheep shearing to tug of war.

One such competition was the Floral Art Finals. We are delighted to announce that our Stores Apprentice, Gemma Dickey, was awarded First Prize in the 21-25 years age category. This was a tough competition with competitors putting together a display live at the event with a theme of “Duet”.

Under the watchful eye of Judge Karen Frew, competitors showed off their creativity and flair as they delicately placed flowers, foliage and other accessories to craft stunning arrangements. Over 400 competitors had taken part in the Floral Art heats and it was a remarkable achievement for the finalists to showcase their artistic ability at the prestigious agricultural event.

Thermo King Exhibits at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2018

TTP recently attended the Commercial Vehicle Show 2018.The CV Show is the largest road transport and commercial vehicle event held in Britain. It provides truck and van operators with far greater choice than can be found anywhere else in the UK. The Show attracts close to 21,000 business visitors and its central location at the NEC Birmingham, ensures a truly nationwide attendance.

The Thermo King Team, CV Show 2018

ThermoKings’s theme for the CV Show 2018 capitalized on both Thermo King’s 80th anniversary and Figoblok’s 40th anniversary and a combined 120 years of innovation. It proved to be the perfect theme for a show which has earned a reputation for delivering seasoned expertise and the latest innovative technologies each year.

2018’s showcase of zero-emission all electric and hybrid transport refrigeration systems is the embodiment of our guiding principles of environmental, business and social sustainability,” said Pauli Johannesen, Vice President and General Manager of Thermo King’s EMEA Truck, Trailer and Bus business. “For many decades Thermo King and Frigoblock solutions have ensured the sustainability of our customers operations whether in truck, trailer or home delivery operations. This year, both brands celebrate their 80th and 40th anniversaries respectively exemplifying our long term commitment to listening to our customers and their needs.”

Thermo King and Frigoblok celebrated 120 years of innovation with the unveiling of this impressive cake.

Thermo King and Frigoblok celebrated 120 years of innovation with an impressive cake

The Thermo King and Frigoblok CV Show stand featured the new SLXi Hybrid trailer refrigeration units. Innovative hybrid technology was introduced as a concept during the 2017 CV Show. It has now been turned into reality and combines expertise from Thermo King and Frigoblock for sustainable and cost effective urban and long-haul refrigerated transport.

“This was definitely the highlight as the SLXi Hybrid is a true success of our Thermo King and Frigoblok technologies coming together to deliver a customer solution that will carry well into the future. And timing was great as the product, introduced as a concept in 2017, is now available for order, said Donal.”

The SLXi Hybrid offers customers easier access to restricted, low-noise and low-emission urban areas, while lowering their environmental footprint and operating costs at the same time.

Technical Transport Products Win at Thermo King Dealer Awards

TTP win at the TK Dealer Awards! Thermo King have honoured their most successful dealers at its annual Dealer Principal Conference. We were delighted to be awarded “2017 Connectivity Dealer of the Year” in Marrakesh, Morocco.

Kathryn Dickey and Tracy Martin of TTP are presented with the Connectivity Dealer of the Year 2017 Award

Technical Transport Products are Connectivity Dealer of the Year 2017!

What a year for TTP – not only did we celebrate 40 years in business, but we also made our mark in marketing and delivering innovation by leveraging the SLXi BlueBox technology.

This is a new award introduced by ThermoKing and goes to the dealer who has been most successful in the telematics field. TK Tracking – the Thermo King system, has been extremely successful and has received great feedback from TTP’s customers in Northern Ireland. This is because it’s ease of use and functionality make TK Tracking accessible to everyone, from drivers to office staff and everyone in between. .

The system allows the user to see the location, temperature, setpoint, mode of operation etc. of the trailer, but more importantly TKTracking has two way communication. This means that if a driver accidentally sets the temperature incorrectly someone in the Traffic Office can remotely change the setpoint of the refrigeration unit, no matter where the unit is.

“TTP is focused on providing a full solution to their customers, including connectivity. With the launch of standard connectivity through the SLXi trailer product, TTP took the initiative to share the value proposition of this offering and successfully sold a significant majority all trailer units with TracKing contracts,” said Donal Cox, Thermo King UK, Ireland and Benelux Region Director. “They also utilized Thermo King’s three-month free trial with a number of promotions and achieved an impressively high activation rate.”

The dealership, in partnership with Thermo King’s Fred Rogers, Area Sales and Service Manager, effectively sold the value of connectivity and increased the value Thermo King can offer to customers. “The dealer has recognized the Intelligence and Data is the way forward in our industry. Through Intelligent Services, we can minimise downtime for our customers through predictive maintenance and also become a better solution provider as we learn more about each customer’s fleet operations.”

All 2017 Dealer Award winners were selected for excellence and leadership in all aspects of performance, while also providing a superior customer service.
