In the modern business climate, state-of-the-art technology is often key to an organisation’s success. And that’s no different for The Gritting Company.
Yes, our brand has stood the test of time; but none of this would be possible if we didn’t continually invest in innovative technology that keeps us on the road, even in the bleakest weather conditions.
We were one of the industry’s first adopters of GPRS vehicle tracking over 16 years ago, and continue to invest in ever-more intuitive tracking technology this links with our state of the art job management system.
Having invested in the development of a bespoke IT system, we are also able to provide customers with real time information on the progress of their jobs, as well as historical data.
We keep a constant eye on technological innovations and update our systems whenever we think we can improve our approach to customer service.
All our vehicles are owned by us and proactively maintained by our in-house team of mechanical engineers.
We have a wide range of lorry-mounted gritters, snow ploughs and JCBs, through to much smaller equipment and even hand operated salt spreaders. Collectively, this gives us the most extensive and varied winter maintenance fleet in any privately-owned UK company. So, whether we’re covering vast acres or navigating our way around incredibly restrictive car parks and courtyards, we’ll arrive with the best-fit technology for the job at hand.
In-keeping with our ISO14001 accreditation, our new vehicles are also compliant with Euro 6 emission standards, to minimise the environmental impact of our operations.
