Econ is proud, on the eve of it’s 50th birthday to welcome Cold Comfort to it’s local borough, Harrogate.

As a Yorkshire family business that is firmly rooted nearby in the neighbouring city of Ripon, Econ Engineering is delighted to be a sponsor of this year’s show, which promises to be bigger and more successful than ever. 

This year’s Cold Comfort also coincides with the 50th anniversary of Econ’s foundation and so we are extremely proud to be able to share with you our success story of how the Econ has weathered the storms, adapting to economic and local government fluctuations to become the UK’s largest winter maintenance vehicle manufacturer

As we look towards what we hope will be another 50 years as a vibrant and innovative manufacturing business, it is worth noting that right here in Yorkshire we currently produce 80% of the gritters that are operating on UK roads. And with our fleet of 750 spreaders, we also run the country’s largest hire fleet, putting us at the forefront of Britain’s winter maintenance operations.
