The Largest Exhibition of Its Kind Anywhere in the World


If nothing else, Hillhead 2018 will be remembered for its cloudless skies, unbroken sunshine, and high temperatures—surely the best weather the event has been blessed with in its illustrious history! As it happened though, there is quite a lot else by which the show will be remembered: the unique if slightly weird ‘Man Engine’ demonstrations, for instance. And then there was the record number of visitors (19,687) and exhibitors (546). And an abundance of free food, beer, footballs and every other business gift under the blazing sun.

Hillhead 2018

The biennial 3-day Hillhead show, which is a global showpiece for the quarrying, construction and recycling industries, occured from Tuesday 26th - Thursday 28th June 2018, at the familiar Hillhead Quarry, just south of Buxton, Derbyshire.

The previous Hillhead 2016 was also a great success - you can watch our 360° videos here.

Hillhead Quarry

Held in a limestone quarry in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, the appeal of this exhibition has increased notably in the last few years.  In 2018 the event was bigger than ever; with a new 70-metre long structure to extend the Registration Pavilion and extra works to make the Quarry Face Demonstration even bigger.

Stand W9

As well as operating live demonstrations, the Corgin team were exhibiting on Stand W9 on the main quarry floor, discussing our ever-evolving range of innovative dust suppression products with a record number of visitors.


Free Refreshments

Following positive feedback from previous years, we once again offered free drinks and chocolate on our stand W9.

"Dust Suppression Providers of Choice"

Since 2012, Corgin have been well-established at Hillhead as 'dust suppression providers of choice' for the event organisers.

At Hillhead 2018, we had a bigger presence than ever.  We demonstrated our MistCannon Integral and DustLayer as we have done previously and this year for the first time, we also showed off our MistCannon Ranger, which is the newest addition to our MistCannon family. Meanwhile at Stand W9 we had an AtomisterAiro nozzle running, along with a display of our Odour Neutraliser consumables.

But the real star of Corgin’s show this time was our new, innovative DustLess dust suppressant. A 40-metre section of the aisle close to Stand W9 was treated with DustLess some three weeks prior to the event; it proved its incredible durability by surviving not only the rigours of the event construction phase, but also unnecessary heavy watering by the site bowser that was conducting its conventional means of dust suppression of the entire site. DustLess is designed to eliminate the need for such continuous watering of traffic areas, such that the effects of a single application will last up to 9 months! Needless to say, especially given the current spell of prolonged dry weather and looming water shortages in some areas, this product has generated considerable interest. During the show week we airfreighted in more supplies from the factory in USA to help fulfil existing orders urgently and since then, a further container load of product has been ordered in a bid to keep abreast of burgeoning demand.
