TRCS - Cummins Environmental Gateway Finalists

TRCS - Cummins Environmental Gateway Finalists

TR Control Solutions submitted their proposal after Cummins, the largest independent maker of diesel engines and related products in the world, called on innovators of all sizes to come forward with sustainable innovations to help Cummins achieve their Environmental targets in the UK.

The Cummins Environmental Gateway, launched in partnership with Marcela Navarro, CEO of Business Cubed (formerly responsible for the successful launch and deployment of the RBS Innovation Gateway), is looking for green and innovative suppliers to positively impact Cummins 2020 Environmental targets whilst promoting supplier inclusion. 

The project team, led by Denis Ford, Corporate Indirect Purchasing Leader EMEA, NE/SE Asia & South Pacific at Cummins, is delighted with the quality of the finalists. “We have been very impressed with the quality of the innovations received and even more with the potential for environmental impact and savings. TR Control Solutions should be very proud to be a finalist in the Cummins Environmental Gateway”.

TR Control Solutions Ltd (TRCS) are an industrial applications developer and solution provider who have been successfully helping clients reduce cost, improve sustainability and increase competitiveness since 2004.

John Taylor, Managing Director of TRCS explains, ‘Our solution is not just another energy monitoring application. We know that monitoring systems are often ignored because people are very busy at work; even when they find the time, they are often unsure about what to do. So our solution converts data into useful information and pushes it to the relevant personnel, with appropriate advice and only when their attention is actually required.’

TRCS was one of over 100 companies from across the globe that submitted an innovation to the Cummins Environmental Gateway when Cummins UK launched the programme back in August 2016.

Their idea will be presented on March 2, to a high calibre panel, who will decide which innovations will have the opportunity to be implemented, and if successful, scaled up, on Cummins sites in the UK. The panel includes, amongst others: 

Antonio Leitao (Vice President - Europe ABO)

Richard Keane (Global Operations FE Director)

Mark Dhennin (Director Energy & Environment)

Denis Ford (International Sourcing Leader, EMEA, NE/SE Asia & South Pacific)

Professor Steve Evans – Director of Research and Industrial Sustainability: Cambridge University

Geoff Burnand – CEO: Investing For Good

John Taylor notes, 'Projects like the Cummins Environmental Gateway provide a great opportunity for innovations to gain recognition and credibility on a national and international scale, accelerating our opportunities to access markets and scale. We are proud to have reached the finalist stage and are delighted Cummins have recognised that our solution has the potential to help improve energy efficiency across the Cummins estate.’

Finalists like TR Control Solutions, if successful, will have the opportunity to test their innovations on Cummins sites in the UK.
