The new Mayor welcomes CAT-UK into the new Python Properties Cargo Fleet Offices in Middlesbrough. CAT-UK is an award winning Fuel Economy and Emission Reduction Company specialising in Transport Applications. It certainly seems CAT-UK can do no wrong after proving its unique systems, which have created up to 28% fuel savings for diesel engines and the petrol system seems set to follow suit, then winning the ‘Tees Valley Green Business Bronze Award”’and also, and most recently, being crowned the 2011 Winners of the ‘Strictly Small Business Award’ life certainly feels good at the moment. MD Derek Foxcroft said “We are honoured to be moving into Cargo Fleet Offices which is the most prestigious and luxurious business venue in the Tees Valley and this will help us drive the next phase of our business development to even greater heights including job creation.
CAT-UK offers fuel saving and emission reduction technology for petrol, diesel and bio-blended fuels in vehicles such as cars, vans, tractors, boats, trucks, motor homes and all other transport and fi xed engine applications. Mr Foxcroft said “Our technology has been proven by transport operators to deliver fuel saving benefits that also reduces your carbon emissions. We offer a Satisfaction Guarantee to all customers and our technologies are bolt on, fit and forget systems which can be moved easily from vehicle to vehicle of the same fuel type. “We have overcome so many things to get here not least the doubters and sceptics who always said we would never achieve what we so obviously have.” Mr Foxcroft added: “The other things we have overcome are lack of funding from banks or otherwise, lack of understanding what ECO-CAT can do for a business (adding profit back to the bottom line) and technical managers who dismiss our technology without even looking at or testing it, even when we offered free trials. Those day’s are now gone.
“Most support and help along the way came from the team at E-Strands Ltd who recently have pulled out all the stops to help us re-brand and create the right image that CAT-UK has become. Nothing has ever been too hard and the team have proven without doubt that they are a long term partner moving forward. “Our thanks go to Mike Janes (Managing Director), Mike Connolly (Operations Director) and Mark Cross (Graphic Designer) who have made so much possible and the added value aspect of our relationship with the team constantly takes us by surprise.” CAT-UK has recently engaged the services of several interim Managers and Directors to strengthen the company ready for large corporate accounts already in negotiation, including an 8 year contract to supply, maintain and support a fleet of 1500 trucks in Belgium. Mr Foxcroft said: “The icing on the cake is the opportunity to secure a pending MOD Defence Research Contract which would create massive and immediate growth for CAT-UK on an International scale. “This could potentially provide over 65 jobs in the very near future and we have plans for a manufacturing plant on Teesside to expand in line with the increase in demand for the products we offer.”
