The UK has a significant history in the motoring industry, and despite the slight recent economic downturn, the UK still produces a vast number of vehicles every day, and the continued development of the industry is showing signs of growth. Domestic vehicles however are not only the automotive industry that the UK features heavily in – motor sports have a number of well established and successful teams that are based here.


Many of the processes involved in the manufacture of automotive parts generate atmospheres that are undesirable for operatives working in or around them. This can range from the gases emitted from the smallest welded components to the paint fumes generated when spraying panelling. Fortunately, MECHON has a solution to cater for all of these scenarios.

As part of the complete package that MECHON provides, we offer our expertise in the safe handling and filtering of unwanted air by products, which can be incorporated into any of the custom systems our designs and to suit the Clients’ requirements.
