The Warwickshire based manufacturer of wood chippers and vegetation management equipmentGreenMech, have been awarded their second Queens Award for Enterprise. The first award, in 2005, was for International Trade. This second award has been made for Innovation.
The Innovation 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.
SAFE-Trak specification machinery has a wide range of applications and is widely used in the Arboriculture and Forestry. It has a particular niche in the Utility sector, where its durability and ease of maintenance make it ideally suited to tree works on railway cuttings, roadside embankments and electricity line clearance contracting. In addition the maintenance of forestry rides and rhododendron clearance is easily managed by the MULTI-Task which can operate in arduous conditions safely and effectively. GreenMech’s S AFE-Trak range is available throughout the UK through a specialised dealer network who have been selected for their individual knowledge of, and commitment to the industry. Machinery is also available for short term contracts from both national and independent hire outlets across the country.
Commenting on the award, GreenMech’s Chairman Tony Turner said, “ I am immensely proud the efforts of the whole team whose hard work have enabled us the win our second Queens Award for Enterprise. It is especially gratifying that this Queens Award is for innovation – an area that we particularly focus on.”
