A TECHNOLOGY firm has landed a contract with transport group Metrobus that will see its two-way radio system installed on 130 buses in southern England.
Billingham-based Eemits Communications has won a five-year deal with Metrobus on the back of a referral from a major UK transport company.
The new four-site, multi-channel equipment will give Metrobus more effective communication over a distance far larger than it has had before, while it also provides drivers with a panic button which will increase their safety while driving.
The contract is the latest step in Eemits’ national growth strategy as it continues to win new business from outside its native North East.
The company has added a bench engineer to its team to facilitate this growth, with more new jobs likely to be created in the coming weeks and months.
