Ports & Airports

Unrivalled reliability and performance to keep your customers moving

Keeping your facility running is a continuous challenge and the presence of snow and ice  build-up can make that challenge even more difficult. Reliable, high-performance gritting and de-icing equipment is essential.

With over 50 years’ of experience, Econ has the experience and knowledge to provide just what you need to meet these challenges, with our equipment being manufactured to BS 1622 1989 Class A1 and draft Euro prEN 15597-2 standards.

Our range of snow ploughs, gritters and liquid de-icers are available in a range of capacities to cope with the demands of modern passenger and commerce hubs. Our larger 32t combi-spreader, or 26t low throw dry spreader, can cover large expanses easily and quickly, while our trailer or pick-up mounted spreaders are perfect for pedestrianised areas and cycle routes.

Econ also provides unparalleled levels of service and support for your equipment, whether leased or procured outright. Our service and maintenance teams can provide replacement equipment quickly in the unlikely event that something cannot be repaired on-site.
