A LEADING automation and controls business has taken on a fleet of seven new Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles at its South Wales headquarters.
Industrial Automation & Control Ltd (IAC) is the UK’s leading independent systems integrator of PLC systems, variable speed drives and Scada. The team has selected the new vehicles in a bid to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and save money.
Sales director Paul Howell said: ‘It’s important for us to be able to show our customers that we are buying into green technology, and because the Outlander PHEV is so environmentally friendly there are personal tax savings for us as well, so it’s the ideal vehicle really.’
The Outlander PHEVs will be used by Paul, four other directors, the international sales manager and deputy sales manager. Between them, they do more than 100,000 miles a year. The company has already installed six charging points at its premises in Queensway Meadows.
Tony Sciascia, managing director at Celtic Mitsubishi in Swansea, which supplied the vehicles, said: ‘The Outlander PHEV has outstanding eco credentials and excellent tax benefits, so it’s perfect for the team at IAC.’
IAC Ltd, which employs 75 people and has an annual turnover of £8.5m, undertakes complex integration projects in the UK and overseas for a huge range of industries, including paper, metals, pharmaceuticals, materials-handling, food, chemicals, printing, textiles, water and nuclear power.
