Marking more than 50 years in the business of safeguarding Critical National Infrastructure, Morgan Marine chalks its success up to the fact that it never stops innovating.
The UK field-leader in LPCB-security rated products which have long been at the forefront of keeping critical infrastructure secure across the utilities, rail, construction, nuclear and renewables sectors, just last year the company launched the first GRP 1 hour fire rated LPCB Security rated enclosure, which it showcased at the Security and Counter Terror Expo 2017 (SCTX17) and at IFSEC 2017.
Morgan Marine will have a presence at this year’s key security events too, where its well-respected professionals will be happy to talk about its range of products and the innovative thinking behind them.
The Wales-based company has a well-established reputation for leading the field in Research and Development within the industry and this latest product heads a long line of firsts for the company.
The company also unveiled the Herculouvre SR2 and SR3 fully-louvred doors in 2017. These included the first one and two-hour fire rated enclosures tested independently under load bearing circumstances and also the first in the world to successfully put a GRP construction through the vigorous LPCB physical security testing.
Sue Paton, Morgan Marine’s Sales and Commercial Director, said of the innovation: “We are keenly aware that the security needs of our clients across the utilities, rail, construction and nuclear sectors are always evolving, so our minds are focused upon developing the most robust security products to meet these shifting needs.
“As part of this ongoing programme we also launched new LPCB single and multi leaf access covers to our range recently. The new Trojan LPCB SR3 and 4 single and multi leaf access covers are particularly valuable to clients in the water sectors by helping to secure chambers – whether these are dry or wet wells, access to valves, or chemical fill points.
“Of course, for water utilities companies, their equipment isn’t just housed in buildings, kiosks and housings, but it extends to pipework, wells and chambers, all of which need to be protected so they don't become the soft underbelly for potential intruders or attackers. These covers are particularly useful in this regard and we engineered and manufactured them in direct response to requests from our clients.”
Morgan Marine strives to stay at the forefront of its industry and continues to lead the way. It is the only company to offer clients a choice of build materials for their LPCB enclosures and the company plans to add to and improve its ever-growing portfolio of LPCB accredited security products this year.
The company has full in house engineering, both mechanical and electrical, and extensive sales support, as well as experienced site teams and logistical crew to ensure a smooth efficient service from enquiry through to installation.
Sue adds: “Our Titan range of security enclosures were the first GRP enclosures tested and certified to LPS1175 issue 7, which demonstrates our forward thinking approach.”
In order to offer ever-more improved value, responsiveness and quality-of-service, the company has installed a £1 million Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, which has integrated all applications across the group, to manage the business and to automate many back-office functions relating to IT, services and HR.
This investment is part of wholesale remodelling and ambitious expansion plans. These include current renovation and further extension of its offices, to accommodate more engineering and sales personnel.
The Morgan group continues to go from strength to strength; it employs 257 people and has a turnover approaching £25 million.
