Spillard Safety Systems has secured a number of new contracts with DHL, Marstons and Tesco’s One Stop stores to fit its vehicle video surveillance, four camera system to more than 1500 vehicles.

The company is on target to achieve a record £5m year after the purchase boost.

More than £800,000 of business has been won, which will see the business expand by nearly 20% over the course of the next six months.

Spillard has employed 10 additional engineers to cope with current and future demand.

Spillards’ managing director Pete Spillard said: “Mining, construction and plant have typically been our core markets and, whilst we are still seeing market share grow in these sectors, it is the sudden spike in orders for commercial vehicles that is putting us on target for £5m.

“Major retailers with big fleets and distribution companies are switching on to the dangers of ‘blind spots’.”

It has created fifteen new jobs over the last eighteen months, increasing its service engineers to more than half of its 43-strong workforce.

Spillards’ finance director Craig Spillard said: “We are constantly innovating our product range to make sure we are the forefront of solutions that help ‘kill blind spots’ and make driving or operating equipment safer.

“An increasing number of organisations are adopting our technology and we will continue to work with local authorities and other safety providers to remain the authoritative force in mobile safety solutions.”
