Welcome to 2015!
For many, the New Year signals a fresh start and I for one, am really looking forward to what this year has in store and relish the challenge of leading the family business into the next phase of its evolution.
The Jacksons brand is supported by a wonderful heritage built on the superior quality and durability of our products, our commitment to delivering an outstanding customer service and that all-important ingredient, integrity in all that we do. As the new CEO I have no intention of initiating dramatic change within what is already a great British company. We have successfully ridden out the last economic recession and continue to enjoy an excellent reputation within our chosen sectors, so my job is to simply further enhance the impressive legacy I inherited.
The big news for the early part of this year will come as a result of our commitment to deliver tested and certified perimeter security and access solutions at every security level to cover every application - from the homes of high profile individuals, to schools, places of worship, logistics hubs, retail, commerce and industry through to the highest security data centres and critical national infrastructure.
It’s our aim to be in position to offer the most comprehensive range of tested and certified fencing and gates in the UK and I hope to be announcing the certification of a variety of fencing and gates to LPS 1175 at SR1 and SR2 in the near future – these really are high performance products and will represent exceptional value.
I’m also pleased to report on the delivery and installation of our new double turnstile to its first customer. It’s a product we designed specifically to offer high levels of security integrity and installation flexibility when integrated to our fencing systems.
So if your business or employer is looking to improve its perimeter security arrangements remember to mention Jacksons!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers a very happy and prosperous New Year – and look forward to getting to meet some of you in the months ahead.
