GreenMech , manufacturer of wood chippers and vegetation management equipment, were awarded a second Queens Award for Enterprise. The first award, in 2005, was for International Trade. This second award is for Innovation.
The award is for GreenMech’s development of the SAFE-Trak system fitted to their tracked wood chippers and to the recently launched MULTI-Task tracked tool carrier. These machines offer contractors the opportunity to significantly reduce costs by facilitating the safe transport and stable operation of the wood chipper or Multi-Task, on slopes of up to 35º, where vegetation clearance work is undertaken. The SAFE-Trak system offers a greatly increased stability and access to difficult terrain and keeps the operators out to the danger zone when working on railway or motorway embankments.
The award ceremony took place at the firms headquarters in Alcester Warwickshire.
