The Transport iNet through ERDF, has taken five companies to the 2011 national CENEX Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) event, giving them the opportunity to meet leading industry contacts who could aid their business development.
The nationally acclaimed event provided the SMEs with a unique platform to showcase the world leading, low carbon transport technologies they offer. The organisation and support provided by the Transport iNet, helped the selected companies to gain valuable exhibition space.
Along with the Transport iNet, representatives of Axon Automotive, The Hardstaff Group, KS Composites, Rieju UK Ltd and The Seat Design Company were able to introduce themselves to leading industry professionals at the event and show how their projects are contributing to reducing carbon emissions.
The exhibition was the perfect place for representatives of The Hardstaff Group to kick start their LCV GRID project, which they are running in collaboration with Loughborough University. The project is currently looking for participants to trial portable gas refuelling stations for Light Goods Vehicles and HGVs. Interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details of the trails.
The CENEX LCV event is a unique opportunity to network and for the SMEs to meet industry experts who could change the future of their business. – John Frodsham, Director of the Transport iNet
We were excited to demonstrate what the region has to offer in terms of new low carbon technology and the support that the Transport iNet provides across the East Midlands. The event was a great way of gaining national and international recognition for these projects, as well as making introductions to industry professionals, potential suppliers and buyers.”
