Machynlleth firm lands fleet telematics contract worth £2m
Machynlleth-based Plant-i Ltd, which celebrates its 10th birthday this year, expects to create three new jobs by the end of this year as a result of the additional work and other new contracts secured by the company.
Telematics refers to any device which merges telecommunications and infomatics such as GPS navigation.
Plant i Ltd provides vehicle tracking, fleet telematics, risk management and security solutions for all fleet vehicles including plant, assets, trailers, staff, HGV’s, and vans.
Since December, the company has tripled the size of its offices on Dyfi Eco Park and has also taken on six new staff, growing the workforce to 14.
The company has also recently invested £100,000, aided by a £20,000 Welsh Government grant, to develop its own new database and website portal using the latest generation technology.
“Having our own database will improve overheads and control, enable us to deliver bespoke applications very quickly and open up new markets for the company,” said managing director Sam Browne.
Plant-i is soon to launch a new consumer product that will enable the purchaser to track their vehicle, asset or even a person.
The company plans to sell the new product, which is ideal for motorhomes, touring caravans, powerboats and quad bikes, with a competitive one off cost of £200 fitted and no monthly follow on fee for the first year.
