Good Perimeter Security Is Key For Smooth Manufacturing Operations
Wherever you live chances are you have factory of some kind not too far away. We were reminded of this recently when our Technical Director Andy flew over our premises and skirted the perimeter of Stirling. Amongst the many landmarks that Elaine our Office Administrator spotted when she saw the video clip was a local factory at Cowie. Below is a screen grab from the video on our perimeter security YouTube channel. Look closely just below the horizon and you will see a puff of smoke - that's the factory where MDF (medium density fibreboard) is produced.
In Britain, we have seen first hand how the manufacturing sector has grown in the years since we were first established in 1982. This growth continues unabated as evidenced in a recent BBC article entitled UK manufacturing growth remains strong. Increased demand for British manufactured goods from countries such as the United States, Russia and China are believed to be a strong factor.
Manufacturers of course are involved in a vast array of different products. Here are just a few of the kind of production lines you might see at any British factory today:
Drinks & Beverages
All of the manufacturing facilities for these items of course need effective perimeter security - to protect the supplies being brought in to produce the goods and also to protect the goods themselves. Sometimes even the factory machinery itself is targeted for theft.
Let's take a closer look at just 2 from the above list - Automotive and Drinks & Beverages.
