Cloudburst Fire Bucket Generates Huge Interest at Helitech International

Thanks to our European partners and distributors Patria Helicopters AB (Sweden) the Cloudburst Fire Bucket was well-represented at Helitech International held October 16-18 in Amsterdam.

Helitech: Dedicated to the Worldwide Helicopter Industry

Helitech International (recently renamed the ‘Vertical Flight Expo & Conference’) is the largest helicopter trade show in Europe dedicated to helicopter products, parts, accessories and services.

The event brings together leading manufacturers, suppliers, buyers and engineers from throughout the industry and from all over the world with an audience from civilians to government and military operators with a range of helicopter capacities and requirements.

Patria Showcases Cloudburst Fire Bucket

With two decades at this prestigious event, 70m2 of show space, and some of their top brass in attendance, we were very fortunate to have Patria displaying the Cloudburst Fire Bucket, which generated plenty of serious interest throughout the three-day event.

Visitors to Patria’s stand also pointed out how the Cloudburst Fire Bucket stood out among the other fire buckets on show due to its inherent durability and how effective it would be over its competitors when fighting fires.

The Cloudburst Fire Bucket is effective and efficient when deployed on aerial firefighting missions.

Cloudburst Fire Bucket with Monsoon Valve & Full Time Multi Drop

Many people were drawn in by the modern aspects incorporated in the Cloudburst Fire Bucket’s unique system, setting it apart from its competitors. Much of the interest came from a Cloudburst Fire Bucket on display being fitted with Monsoon Valve and Full Time Multi Drop demonstrated below straight off the production line.

Hot Leads for Cloudburst Fire Buckets

The strong responses came from around the globe including Europe, the UK, and parts of Asia with a bunch of promising hot leads now being worked on by the team at Patria Helicopters AB.

Pride in After-Sales & Ongoing Customer Service

Pride in not only the sales process but also in after-sales and ongoing service is one of the core values at IMS, and a value we share with Patria. IMS is now working closely with the Patria team to demonstrate to existing and prospective clients what the implementation of a Cloudburst Fire Bucket into their operations can mean for their efficiencies and effectiveness when fighting fires.

Cloudburst Fire Buckets can be dip-filled from virtually any source including rivers and lakes.
