In the two-hour session, The Efficient Future will seek answers to how technology will impact the future of construction, and what changes the industry can expect and lead themselves. 

The Efficient Future has a leading line-up of knowledgeable thinkers from top companies within the construction and machinery industry.

John Day, General Manager of Industrial Engines at Yanmar will be joining the line-up of industry-leading speakers.

John has had an impressive career with years of industry experience, having been in the business around 39 years. Following a 5 year Mechanical Apprenticeship in the aerospace industry he started his diesel engine career in the early 80’s with Petters Diesel engines in Staines, Middlesex moving into UK outside sales in 1984 just before the formation and amalgamation of Lister – Petter Ltd in 1986.

Following 2 further years as an Area Sales Manager for Lister-Petter Ltd UK in 1988 he became the Regional Manager of the West coast of the USA covering 9 states following the launch of the new Alpha range with Lister-Petter America reporting to the head office in Kansas.

In 1991 John returned to Lister-Petter UK taking up Sales responsibility for 16 countries in Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa and Middle East. Then he moved to E.P. Barrus Ltd in 1996 to take on the position of General Manager Industrial Engines to promote the Yanmar range of Industrial engines which included the L Series and the newly launched TNE water cooled engines which have both continued to grow throughout the last 25 years!
