New Offices, New Website, More Vortex

This year alone, Vortex has seen significant change with new offices, a new website and more endeavours on our smart city solutions. To provide our growing list of customers the very best in Air Quality Monitoring we needed to relocate the company to meet increasing production demands. At Vortex, we design, manufacture, and distribute all our products in-house to provide hardware & software that is best-in-class. Read about our new offices.

As more Local Authorities and Companies turn their attention to tackling air pollution, Vortex's fit and forget technology helps users make data-driven decisions with a real-time, street-level accurate view of their air quality.

Liverpool Council

We are installing our air quality sensors around schools in the Merseyside city, with a focus on protecting children's lungs and increasing awareness of pollution at schools.

Cardiff Council

The Welsh capital will be monitoring air quality at every school in the borough. VTX Air networks are being deployed at more than 30 different locations.

Transport for Wales - M4

Vortex is deploying sensors along the M4 highway, which has seen 50mph speed limits introduced to reduce air pollution. VTX Air's hyperlocal view of air pollution can help validate environmental interventions like speed limits.

Schools in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are using Vortex Air Quality monitors to manage air pollution and protect our children.

Marston Holdings

Our strategic partner has supported Vortex in the distribution of VTX Air throughout 2021. The integration of our Air Quality Monitoring networks with Marston Holding's traffic management solutions has been a huge success for pollution reduction efforts in London.
