Procter's Angel Looks after Honda; INDUSTRIAL SAFETY: Unique Guarding System Secures 'Six-Figure' Deal for Bedwas Company


Byline: WILL SMALE Assistant Business Editor

PROCTER Machinery Guarding of Bedwas is aiming to build on a contract to supply Honda with its latest product.

The car giant recently installed Procter's new Angel guarding system across its extended Swindon plant.

Procter secured the contract after giving Honda a special preview of the product, which has only just been officially launched.

After two years in development, the Angel guard is designed to be both lightweight and highly durable.

Managing director Jeremy Procter said, "Angel is easy to specify, simple to order and we can turn around typical orders within a few days - that's what separates Angel from other machine guarding products.

"We can offer British industry a completely new and cost-effective alternative to the old prison camp approach to shop floor safety. The Honda contract was a huge boost for staff, particularly as we hadn't even officially launched Angel at the time."

Procter says the Angel guard stands out from the competition because it can be installed, taken down and re-installed without modification.

Mr Procter said, "Our patent-protected connector is the key to the system's versatility. It allows panels to be attached to posts from several directions giving the user a greater freedom in layout design."

Andrew Golesworthy, engineering manager at Honda in Swindon, was responsible for overseeing the design and installation of the Angel system.

He said, "We decided to use Angel after going through an extensive analysis based on our requirements, including fit for purpose, future expansion, modification, safety, EU compliance and cost. After considering several leading manufacturers, it was clear that Procter and Angel could best fulfil our needs.
