AUTOMATRICS LIMITED - BELIEVED IMPOSSIBLE

8TH AUTOMATRICS LIMITED - BELIEVED IMPOSSIBLE

Automatrics Limited, the UK's only ACPO Secured By Design tracking provider, have this year achieved the "Believed Impossible" with the protection, the track, and the recovery of stolen breaker attachments.

Machine attachments such as breakers, crushers and buckets have proven extremely difficult to protect from theft and are seldom ever recovered. Automatrics have been contacted by several UK manufacturers to look at the fitment of their robust self-powered Automatrics MTrack Proactive tracking units, a rechargeable GSM, GPS and RF Tracker and winner of the Plantworx Security Innovation Award 2013.

Within three months of the devices being installed a stolen breaker was recovered in Southampton by Automatrics working with DC Nathan Ricketts (NaVCIS) and a second stolen breaker located by Automatrics working with DC James Elliott (PANIU). Both breakers were found using radio signal tracking as GPS signals were blocked as attachments were hidden inside vans, one van and several other tools found at site were also listed as stolen
