Mechan Technolgy has rebranded as zonegreen as of September 2008

A clear signal of the further growth and development of Mechan Technology, the Sheffield-based supplier of specialist personnel protection and electronic interlocking systems, has come with the announcement that the company has rebranded as zonegreen.

Mechan Technology – sister company of Mechan – will, as zonegreen, remain focused on the provision of safety-related products to the transport industry, and beyond. The company has become known for the specialist expertise, in-depth knowledge and highly-professional service of its personnel. The decision to rebrand was taken after extensive research, as a company spokesperson explains: “Whilst people knew the name Mechan Technology there was some confusion with Mechan which is a heavy-lift specialist. The name zonegreen will help to differentiate clearly the two businesses and at the same time enhance the worldwide aspect of the company”.

“Following a number of successful tenders, this is a particularly exciting time for us. Our SMART Depot Personnel Protection Systems (DPPS) have been installed at the new Laois Traincare Depot at Portlaoise on the Dublin-Cork main line; at the Eurostar depot at Temple Mills and at two depots on the Dubai Metro’s Red Line. As a result of our success we have quickly become regarded as market-leaders in the provision of such systems. We see the development of zonegreen as another sign of our progression.”

Zonegreen SMART Depot Personnel Protection Systems have also been chosen for Siemens’ Desiro train depots around the UK and for two new Hitachi train depots in Kent.
