Security product manufacturer, Heald Ltd has been granted use of the Made in Britain marque for its unique product offering.
The company designs, manufactures and installs bollards, roadblockers and barriers from its Hornsea base, with the aim of preventing aggressive criminal organisations from carrying out targeted attacks on high profile sites such as government buildings, airports and shopping centres.
The Made in Britain marque will enable consumers to distinguish between Heald’s British-made products and other goods made abroad. The logo appears on thousands of products worldwide, supporting and promoting the manufacturing skills that exist in Britain today.
Part Owner and Managing Director, Debbie Heald commented:
“I am delighted that Heald have been accepted onto the Made in Britain initiative. We are firmly committed to the development of manufacturing in Britain and it has been testament to the number of project wins we have had in recent years. The Made in Britain marque will incite customer confidence and peace of mind in Heald, underlining the company’s high quality products and knowledge of manufacturing processes”.
Research has found that an increasing number of consumers are keen to purchase goods that they know for certain have been made in Britain but are unable to recognise the origin of the products that they buy.
Directors of the Made in Britain initiative include leading business figures; James Bradshaw, who’s commitment to buying only British-made goods for a year attracted considerable news coverage, Kate Hills, founder of website Make it British and Antony Wallis of Best of Britannia.
The news follows a successful start to 2016 for Heald, who recently learnt they had been nominated for two Northern Power Women awards in the ‘Outstanding Entrepreneur’ and ‘Small Business’ categories.
