Duxford-based SMT GB is swapping its entire company vehicle fleet from diesel and hybrid cars to fully electric.

The firm in Moorfield Road, which markets construction equipment and machinery, is also installing more charging points at its premises and providing financial support to enable staff to install home chargers.

All staff members can order their own electric car via a salary sacrifice scheme.

Paul Burr, Environmental Manager at SMT GB said: “Owning an electric car was always a dream of mine, but I’d previously found them to be unaffordable.

"Through the scheme I now have an electric car, and It’s a fantastic benefit not just to me, but to the wider environment. I am proud to work for a company that has taken this bold step forward.”
