Keeping the nation’s cycleways and pathways clear and ice-free this winter has just got easier with the announcement of an exciting new winter services partnership.
This new venture between Safecote and Econ Engineering will provide local councils across the country with the equipment and materials to clear ice and snow on footpaths and cycleways more efficiently.
Whilst Econ has more than 50 years-experience in supplying gritters to the market, Safecote has been delivering ready-to-use liquid anti-icers and de-icers for more than a decade.
Authorities are facing new challenges to keep the ever-increasing network of footways and cycleways open and accessible to the public during the winter season.
This new joint-venture is a natural fit and allows the companies to offer a turnkey solution for those highways authorities who have obligations to keep cycleways and footways safe this winter.
Econ, which last year celebrated its golden anniversary manufactures more than 80 per cent of the winter maintenance and repair vehicles used on Britain’s roads.
It has recently launched two satellite engineering and service hubs – the first in Alloa, Scotland, and the second in the Welsh capital of Cardiff.
