Exwold announce security improvements at Hartlepool site

7th May 2015

As part of Exwold Technology's continued improvement plan and investment for the future, the company has installed new security barriers at the Brenda Road site in Hartlepool.

This Investment has incorporated:

  • Installation of a barrier for vehicle access
  • Installation of a turnstile with authorised access only
  • Reducing general site access with a new fence around the perimeter

Managing Director, Kevin Martin was asked why this is an important investment for the company:

"Primarily this investment was made to improve the safety of our employees, contractors and visitors; providing a more robust system for determining who is on site. There is now no access to the manufacturing site without authorisation and this is particularly important when operating a top tier COMAH site as we are at Brenda Road.

Over the last 12 months, we have seen a significant increase in business at the Brenda Road site and as a direct consequence we have seen a 10-15% increase in the number of vehicles collecting and delivering product. Our warehouse and logistic team have introduced a booking in system to ensure that the increase in demand is well managed and this has increased the number of vehicles we can handle on a daily basis and reduced delays for the hauliers. The installation of an entry barrier helps us to manage vehicles more efficiently and provide further capacity to grow as a business. This also improves the safety of drivers whilst on site.

Exwold contract manufactures for a wide range of Blue Chip companies and in many ways products we handle for them are on loan to us and Product Stewardship is a critical part of their requirements. This new security system hopefully demonstrates to our clients that safety and security of their products while with us, is given the highest priority.

It is a fact of life that first impressions count and you can see the impact of these improvements as soon as you enter the Brenda Road site. The Exwold team believe this brings that first impression in-line with the professional manner we try to approach to our business".
