Following the announcement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond that local authorities will receive £20m to help meet clean air targets, he visited Eminox’s Gainsborough, Lincolnshire HQ.
 
Over the last decade, Eminox’s technology has prevented over 25,000 tonnes of harmful NOx entering the atmosphere around the world.

The company's retrofit SCRT® emissions reduction technology enables operators to cost-effectively upgrade older vehicles to comply with air quality targets, reducing emissions by up to 99% and exceeding Euro VI and Ultra Low Emission Zone/Clean Air Zone (ULEZ/CAZ) requirements.
 
While on-site the Chancellor toured Eminox’s state of the art manufacturing facility, which has recently received a multi-million pound upgrade, and the company’s Retrofit Development Centre, which is working with industry partners to help prepare bus and coach operators for the forthcoming London ULEZ and other CAZ.


 
The Chancellor also had the chance to inspect Eminox’s large scale investment in UK manufacturing, which is helping it meet growing global demand for its high-performance products.

This equipment includes new Trumpf fibre optic flatbed and tube lasers, used for creating parts for complex exhaust systems. They operate at twice the speed of previous machines, save 60-65% in terms of energy and increase productivity through unattended running and faster, more accurate cutting.
 
“Coming so soon after the Budget, we were delighted to welcome the Chancellor to Eminox. His visit re-affirms the significance of reducing emissions to public health – and highlights how the transport industry can use the latest technology to improve air quality and meet stringent pollution targets,” said Carlos Vicente, Retrofit Sales Director for Eminox. “Choosing to come to Eminox demonstrates the importance of our market leading retrofit technology, based on our 40 years of experience and unrivalled emissions control expertise from design to manufacture.”
