Come and meet NGK at Saltex 2021

Ignition and sensor specialist NGK will make its first appearance at a UK show since before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic last year when it exhibits at Saltex 2021 next month.

It will take centre stage at the two-day show, which is the leading turf management event for grounds care volunteers, professionals and manufacturers, when it exhibits on Stand K055 at the NEC, Birmingham on November 3 & 4.

The company’s stand will feature MO70 which at Santa Pod Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire in October 2019 became the fastest lawnmower over 1/4 mile by completing the course in just 9.49 seconds, achieving a top speed of 115.53mph and also becoming the fastest accelerating lawnmower by reaching 102.64mph in 5.44 seconds.

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd is well known for its expertise in the horticultural arena where its spark plugs are renowned for their fast heating which makes them ideal for engines that often work in harsh conditions.

Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to obtain a copy of NGK’s new 2021/2022 Horticultural, Agricultural and Industrial Applications catalogue – featuring MO70 on the cover – which is packed with all the information they require and will also have the chance to win a prize in a crazy golf competition.

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “We are looking forward to attending Saltex 2021 and meeting our customers face-to-face for the first time since before last year’s first national lockdown. Visitors will be able to take away our new catalogue and also meet our staff to discuss our specialist products for the horticultural sector.”
