Highway Maintenance Contractors

Unrivalled performance to overcome your challenges

Econ has been manufacturing highways maintenance vehicles for over 30 years; we know what helps get the job done quickly and efficiently.

From hotboxes that keep your materials at working temperature for longer, to market-leading range of gritting and de-icing vehicles, to Swap Body System solutions for multi-tasking from a single chassis, Econ is trusted by contractors across the United Kingdom.


Maintenance vehicles you can trust

Whether you work on highways or high streets, an Econ vehicle can help your staff finish the task quickly and safely. Our gritters and de-icing vehicles are available in a range of capacities, from grit-spreading trailers which are perfect for smaller areas including car parks and private roads, to 12m3 capacity dry and pre-wet gritters when the job is more substantial.

As a contractor your responsibilities often won’t stop at gritting though. Repairing and maintaining various surfaces and pathways can be a time-consuming task, that’s where our unibody, multipurpose and road patching solutions can deliver huge benefits.

If you often need to switch between moving material, gully clearance and patching, investing in a single-body solution for each task might not suit your budget. This is where our swap body system delivers real value, where a range of multipurpose bodies can be used on a single chassis.
