Flying high with ‘Super Tent’ system at IDEX

Rubb has been promoting its respected Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) at the International Defence Exhibition at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, UAE, February 21st to 24th, 2011.

The shelter system, which features hangars, sunshades and warehouses, is uniquely suitable for the military services, designed to be rapidly deployed and erected anywhere in the world.

Sales Manager Ian Hindmoor said: “Our EFASS range of ‘super tents’ really pushes the boundaries and is in a league of its own when it comes to the rapid deployment of robust and reliable shelters, hangars, warehouses and sunshades. It provides protection to personnel and vital equipment in the most challenging of environments. It also offers some unique qualities including state-of-the-art door options and crane technology. We are excited to be showcasing this product at IDEX. It has been getting a great response and been very well received. We are looking forward to doing business in this area of the world.”

As well as meeting many potential clients and business partners, Ian also welcomed the UK Minister for International Security to Rubb’s stand.
