The Equipment Specs Handbook 23/24 is an annual resource that has been published for the past 14 years – originally by Brooke Pattrick and now by Interact Media Defined (IMD). The publication was historically the 12th issue (printed each December) of the Plant Equipment and Hire publication, shelved during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The ESH objective

IMD has continued to print the ESH directory after COVID, as it adds so much value to the industry. This publication is a unique, one-of-a-kind publication – offering the construction, quarry and mining industry an annual compilation of the specifications of the various ranges of OEM construction and mining equipment available in Africa. It lists the contact details of the OEMs and their distributors in southern Africa. From earthmoving through to materials handling equipment, generators, attachments and compact equipment – you name it, the ESH specs it.

The ESH is used daily by hands-on decision makers on site and readers include engineers, contractors, plant management, plant manufacturers, supervisors, procurement and buyers, local authorities and municipalities and professional services.

If you are an OEM or an official distributor of an OEM, a supplier of services to the construction or mining industry, a maintenance and equipment servicing company, a financial institutions and machine attachment suppliers, a materials supplier or an equipment rental supplier – then this is the perfect opportunity to market your services to this industry for a full year!

This unique handbook has stood the test of time as a jewel in the industry – much loved and relied upon for on-site decision making when it comes to comparing fit for purpose equipment.
