Sep 26, 2016 | 2016, In the Press

Lontra had a fantastic few months of great press and awards!


Lontra featured as a finalist at two prestigious awards ceremonies: The TMMX Awards and the Energy Institute Awards.

Strategic Business Development Director Jenny Rohde commented:

‘These events are an opportunity for global acknowledgement. To see Lontra recognised for innovation and manufacturing is an extremely proud moment.’

August saw Lontra covered by a range of high profile industry titles. The biggest announcement of 2016: Technology Centre launch, which appeared in the ACR Journal, with Editor Will Hawkins and Tanya Blake at Process Engineering writing up pieces following  personal visits.

During September, Lontra featured in Global Cement Magazine for the first time. In the feature the Blade Compressor® was named ‘the next revolution in the cement industry’ and identified the benefits the industry could gain through modernising the air compressor technology.


Reaching Global Audiences

Lontra’s air compressor technology reached a global audience with first pieces of coverage in the Gulf and Middle East. Gulf Industry featured the benefits of Lontra’s Blade Compressor® and explained usage for the product in the Gulf.

CEO Steve Lindsey said of the potential applications:

“The intrinsic efficiency of its design would deliver energy savings and significantly cut costs. Therefore providing a competitive edge to licensees and users.”


Finally in October, it was encouraging to hear UK manufacturing output climbed to a 10-month high. Lontra’s reaction to the good news was covered by The Manufacturer, Eureka and ACR Journal as we maintained that Britain must remain attractive to the world’s best engineers so that we can therefore continue to recruit them from both home and abroad.
