Jet Plant’s road to recognition

Jet Plant, a leading UK road planing contractor, celebrated its achievement in shortlisting for the ‘Transforming our industry through innovation’ award, at the prestigious National Highways Awards held last week at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham.

In the face of fierce industry competition from larger businesses, Jet Plant was honoured to be selected among the finalists chosen to the attend the awards evening.

Managing Direction Sean Witheford commented “Being nominated for this nationally recognised award is a validation of our team’s dedication. It’s an acknowledgment of our ongoing efforts to reshape the road construction landscape through innovation and sustainability. We may not have taken home the trophy this year, but this nomination fuels our determination to continue pushing boundaries for a better, more sustainable future in our industry.”

Jet Plant’s vision for a transformative future is deeply rooted in its core values and the unwavering dedication of its team. Being nominated for the innovation award is testament to Jet Plant’s ongoing commitment to pushing boundaries and driving positive change within the road construction sector.

Jet Plant’s commitment to innovation and sustainability extends beyond its own operations. The company actively encourages the entire industry to adopt forward-thinking approaches and embrace sustainable practices, even when faced with challenges.

The company is committed to transparency in reporting C02 reduction progress, emphasising open and honest communication about the impact of HVO on carbon emissions.

Jet Plant’s introduction of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), a fossil-free alternative to diesel led to a successful trial in August 2022 demonstrated zero performance issues, leading Jet Plant to transition its entire planing fleet to HVO. This strategic move reduces well-to-wheel CO2 emissions by 50% per shift, a significant contribution to the company’s sustainability goals.

The nomination at the National Highways Awards underscored Jet Plant’s ongoing role as a driver for industry-wide transformation.
