Crowdguard was set up in response to the increased threat posed by vehicle attacks within the UK and Europe. Hundreds have been maimed or killed through acts of terrorism across our continent and are headline news, with attacks targeting open spaces and events where crowds gather and where vehicles can be used as weapons against the public. The UK Govt openly recognises such crowded places as ‘soft targets’ and practical measures are needed to ensure public safety.
In the UK, Crowdguard are leading the market with solutions to Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM), with effective products delivered from innovative design, quality build and rigorous testing. The success of the solutions encompasses the product and its deployment, where the quality of installation is essential in the integrity of HVM. Deployment needs to be efficient, precise, and without disruption.
This is why Crowdguard have partnered with Ainscough Industrial Services and their 40 years’ experience and expertise within the equipment moving and handling industry. Efficient and precise installations, with minimal disruption is what AIS do. This partnership ensures no compromise in the H.V.M product and its application, ensuring excellence and professional service is delivered in coordination with counter terrorism, policing and event security.
Crowdguard and Ainscough Industrial Services are sister companies and together aim to set new standards for HVM installation to match those already in place for the HVM product. The threat to public safety and public freedom is too important for any HVM installation to be an after-thought or a relegated secondary task.
Ainscough Industrial Services offers Crowdguard our national network and transport, thereby ensuring we can deploy HVM efficiently through our highly skilled workforce anywhere within the UK.
That combined capability enables local and short-term events, stadiums, venues, music festivals or any other crowded places to be secured effectively.
