A Gainsborough-based emissions specialist has appointed a new technical director.

Eminox, based at the Corringham Road Industrial Estate, has appointed Steve Whelan who will now be responsible for the company’s product development, research and advanced engineering.

Steve, who has over 30 years of experience, will be in charge of four teams at the company.

Eminox was established in 1978 and is a leading European designer and manufacturer for exhaust and emission control systems for heavy duty diesel vehicles.

Steve said: “I am looking forward to reinforcing engineering processes in the short term to support our programmes, developing a progressive technology road map that will drive our activities in the medium term, and creating a portfolio of research projects that will deliver new products into the long term.

“Having that direct hands-on contact with the teams and management here is really exciting.”

Mark Runciman, Operations Director for Eminox, said: “We’re very happy to welcome Steve to the Eminox senior management team, he brings with him nearly 30 years of knowledge from within the industry.

“His insight into the industry will be of great value to us over the coming years as the company enters a new phase of growth.”
