Chancellor Philip Hammond visits Eminox

After the budget, which saw local authorities receive £20m to help meet clean air targets, chancellor Philip Hammond visited Eminox’s Gainsborough, Lincolnshire HQ.

UK-based Eminox’s retrofit SCRT emissions reduction technology enables operators to upgrade older vehicles to comply with air quality targets.

While on-site the chancellor toured Eminox’s 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 products.

‘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.
