Excellence from start to finish
At Econ we like to keep things simple. So, every part, nut and flange are crafted in our factory from bare metal. This three minute video demonstrates some of the processes we go through to create an Econ vehicle. From cutting the flat metal, to calibrating the angles, applying our anti corrosive paint to adding the safety decals. Our vehicles are built to last and designed to meet the needs of today’s road networks.
