The manufacturer and supplier of electronic and electrified perimeter security systems Harper Chalice has added to its dealer network. The prison perimeter systems installer Binns Fencing has become an authorised dealer of its defence and detection systems and complementary products.
Harper Chalice MD Chris Hackett said: “This is one of our most prestigious signing to date and is an indication of where our business is headed. We have launched a major focus on prisons, where our PID systems are going from strength to strength, so Binns’ accreditations, relationships and expertise in this field will be critical.
“They will also be dealers for our CPNI-accredited electric fencing and have just completed their first installation of such a system at a wind farm in Yorkshire.”
Harper Chalice reports growth in the past three years since Hackett led the purchase of a majority shareholding from previous owner and founder Graham Harper which are held on behalf of all of the employees in an employee ownership trust. The company reports that it grew 50pc last year and has targeted a further 30pc to 50pc this year, and is looking to continue to add to its dealer network.
Binns signed up after a number of installations using Harper Chalice product. MD Adam Binns said: “The partnership will enable us to offer prisons, utility sites and other high-security corporates, governments and organisations one integrated solution to manage security and safety risks effectively throughout their enterprises.”
