Eminox promotes first woman to senior management in new director roles

Emission reduction company Eminox is strengthening its team with three new directors.

The company is looking ahead to its 40th year and is beginning 2018 by promoting Rachel Eldridge and Carlos Vicente and welcoming Cyril Journoux to the company.

Rachel is the first female to be promoted into a senior management role, taking on the position of Operations Director after two years with the business.

In her new role, she will focus on driving efficiency and increasing capacity.

Rachel said: “I am thrilled to be the first woman to hold a role at this level, joining the senior leadership team, and I’m looking forward to making a real impression in the emissions industry within 2018.”

Carlos has been promoted to Retrofit Sales Director from International Business Development Manager after nine years within the company. He will focus on delivering solutions for new ultra-low emission zones and clear air zones, as well as expanding into new markets.

He said: “I want to work with our customers to understand their future needs and plan solutions ahead of time so we can meet these new challenges.”

Originally from Paris, Cyril joins the Eminox senior management team as Original Equipment (OE) Sales Director. He brings 12 years’ experience having previously worked for Parker Hannifin and Tata Technologies.

Cyril will make sure that the OE market stays ahead of the curve when it comes to new legislation and leading technology designs. He said: “Because I come from a different background, I can bring a new perspective and challenge the status quo.”

Eminox is looking ahead to its 40th year with an increase in demand for its retrofit products, due to London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone and the possibility of further 28 Clean Air Zones across the country. There are also new and exciting opportunities in the OE market.


Since 1978, the privately owned company has grown from three employees to almost 300 staff.

Eminox will be a key player in helping reduce roadside emissions and its SCRT has already been approved to aid in the £86.1 million project retrofitting 5,000 Transport for London (TfL) buses.

Over the last 40 years, Eminox has outgrown two locations and is now based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. The company has continued to grow whilst driving diesel emission down to near zero and will continue to focus on creating cleaner technologies.
