Mr Hendry met managing director David Constable who showed him the new robotic equipment that now allows the company to manufacture parts for its wheelchair accessible vehicle conversions in house and to the highest possible standards.

In addition, Mr Hendry learned about the safety and environmental aspects of vehicle conversions which are both top priorities for Constables Mobility.

He also discussed the sled-testing campaign, being run by, which is being supported by Constables Mobility.

Mr Constable said, “We were delighted to welcome Mr Hendry as our local MP and demonstrate our engineering expertise and why we are leaders in our field particularly when it comes to safety.

“As Minister for Energy and Climate Change, we were particularly proud to show Mr Hendry how our conversions incorporate the original manufacturers’ fuel additive tanks which mean our vehicles meet the stringent European regulations to do with exhaust emissions and pollution.”
