We are proud to announce the latest addition to our fleet—a fully electric van which is entirely furnished with electric equipment.
This innovative initiative is part of our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability and marks a significant step forward in our efforts to reduce carbon emissions and promote green practices within our industry. We will use their new fully electric van to service the Chesterfield Royal Hospital and other local sites.
Peter Botham, our Managing Director, said,
“We are thrilled to introduce our first fully electric van. It’s a real challenge for our type of business to move wholly away from fossil fuel due to the current range of electric vehicles and power of electric machinery. However, technology is ever improving making it more accessible and suitable for our tasks. We constantly look for alternatives to using fossil fuel, and this milestone represents our unwavering dedication to sustainability and providing environmentally friendly services. We love to embrace electric technology, not only do we reduce our carbon footprint, but it also prioritises the well-being of our clients and the local community.”
