North East tracker producers launch construction/plant product
Succorfish, one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist global tracking systems, is to launch a dedicated construction division in response to industry demands to find a real solution to organised plant theft, asset management and rising insurance costs.
The North East firm already works closely with major construction clients to design highly specialised tracking systems for land-based mobile assets. But the company is now pushing forward with plans to provide the whole industry with a highly advanced yet cost effective tracking product specifically designed for construction and plant hire equipment.
Succorfish has already helped one client to recover more than £1.5m worth of stolen equipment within days of using its SC1 tracking system. The system uses advanced GPS satellite technology to monitor mobile assets to within two metres worldwide regardless of location, terrain or application, and allows clients to accurately record location, show asset movement in real time via a secure online graphical interface, receive an anti-hijack alert if moved without consent, demonstrate final location and save money through investment.
However, unlike many other systems, the Succorfish SC1 was originally designed for defence applications so it is ideally suited to harsh and challenging environments. This means that it can offer 100% reliability on plant machinery operating in difficult terrain or at sites including, for example, open cast quarries or remote forestry.
Succorfish Commercial Director, George Henricks, commented: “We have clients with valuable machinery in locations from Afghanistan to The Scottish Highlands and the most important thing is knowing that they can locate and track their equipment straight away.
“We have a long history of developing customised tracking products specifically to answer industry needs and our experience in doing so can hopefully go some way to help construction and equipment hire companies significantly reduce plant theft costs regardless of location.”
