EAST MIDLANDS COMPANIES PROMOTE INNOVATIVE IDEAS

AT UK’S LARGEST LOW CARBON VEHICLE EVENT

The Transport iNet has taken eight East Midlands based companies to the UK’s largest Low Carbon Vehicle event (LCV2012) run by Cenex on 5th and 6th September at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.

The nationally acclaimed event provided the SMEs with a unique platform to showcase the world leading, low carbon transport technologies they offer and to meet with a range of industry contacts. The organisation and support provided by the Transport iNet has been instrumental in helping the selected companies to gain valuable exhibition presence in front of an international audience.

Representatives of I.M.Kelly (Cobra Design), Frost EV Systems, Global GT Ltd, N & B Engineering, Parkinson Harnessing Technology, SEC UK Industrial Battery Ltd and Techne Cast each had their own area on the Transport iNet stand. In addition to information on each company and its innovation, the stand featured the ‘Raptor’ from Ecospin – the world’s first and only fully road legal, stand-on electric personal vehicle.  

John Frodsham, Director of the Transport iNet, said: “The Cenex LCV event has yet again been invaluable in providing a unique opportunity for pioneering regional SMEs to meet industry figureheads who are likely to have a positive impact on the future of their business. We received a great response from delegates and we’re pleased to have been able to offer the SMEs this chance to network with influential stakeholders in a key industry sector poised for growth.”

 James Taylor from Global GT Ltd, added: “The event was a great success for our team with the result being a number of excellent business leads in relation to our prototyping service. The information we acquired regarding our EV race car was invaluable and positive feedback on our EEKO drive power assist unit was encouraging. Each comment was vital in showing us a path for development and encouraging future investment in innovation.”

 The Transport iNet is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) with the aim of increasing the level of innovation in the East Midlands, thus helping to improve business competitiveness, margins, sustainability and growth. It enables specific sectors to work together, share ideas, technologies, intelligence, innovation and create a link between industry and the academic community.
