Key OEM installations from the Intermat show in Paris

On the OEM vehicle stands at the Intermat 2024 in Paris, UnitedSeats had many seats fitted around the showgrounds. In particular Sunward and Thwaites had a big array of our seats on their machines.

This Chinese OEM makes excavators of all sizes (from mini to maxi). In the smaller machines our UnitedSeats MGV55 and our UnitedSeats Air LGV35/C2 HG was installed. This air seat has been specially created by UnitedSeats in Holland with Sunward logo to meet the demands of European operators.

A sample of the Sunward LGV35/C2 was displayed on the UnitedSeats stand. On the larger excavators CS85/C8 Pro and LGV90/C8 Pro seats were fitted. On the new Sunward mobile battery machine, a US20 was installed.

UK site dumper manufacturer Thwaites based in Leamington Spa, England had a nice display of machines (1 to 9 tonnes) fitted with MGV35 seats. This included the new ROPS safety machine which drew a lot of attention from the French crowds.
