14 | DECEMBER 2019 News Read online at AN EXTENSIVE PRODUCT PORTFOLIO AND COMPREHENSIVE SERVICE OFFERING Originally established in 1992, Bradbury Group has since flourished into the UK’s largest manufacturer of physical security products, including steel doors, grilles and cages. Over the years, the Group has worked to secure infrastructure within an array of sectors, including utilities, water, public, social housing, telecommunications, retail, stadia, transport, and more. Among its more renowned clients have been McDon- ald’s, Wickes, O2, Anglian Water, and SSE, but the Group has come to sup- port clients of all shapes and sizes from across the corporate landscape throughout the two and a half decades it has been in business. Today Bradbury Group comprises of four subsid- iaries: Bradbury Security, Martin Roberts, Liddle Doors, and Newton Secu- rity Doors. Each division has its own products and capabilities that contrib- utes towards the Group’s extensive product portfolio and comprehensive service offering. Of this vast offering, Bradbury Group is best- known for producing an extensive series of be- spoke-engineered steel doors. However, the Group also manufactures and supplies communal en- trances, kiosks, cages, bar sets, cylinder clamps and bottle frames, and other solutions. Thanks to the expertise of its teams within its mem- ber companies, the Group is also able to offer a ful- ly-coordinated service from survey and design to deliv- ery or installation, both na- tionally and internationally, as well as project manage- ment services. This year, the Group relocated to a 135,000 sq. ft. production facility in North Lincolnshire. The headquarters manufactures the steel doors for Group subsidiaries Bradbury Se- curity and Martin Roberts. Over £8million has been invested into the facility within the past two years, including a considerable amount spent on state- of-the-art machinery. This impressive facility also has an expansive warehouse that can store up to 4000 door-sets. With improved capabili- ty and increased capacity, Bradbury Group is now capable of manufacturing a door-set in just four hours, and has the ability to produce 100 door-sets per eight-hour shift. Stream- lined production processes and advanced machinery enables the Group to offer a made to measure steel door which is manufac- tured in just three working days; the shortest lead time in the industry. This latest development will help Bradbury Group to grow even further and enhance its already impres- sive success in the physical security products market. Over the past decade, the Group has seen a five-fold increase in turnover, and looking ahead it is expected to see a predicted growth of around 20% per year, from over £15million to £40mil- lion in the next five years. Liddle Doors has been a trusted provider of security doors and associated secu- rity products to the utilities sector for over 40 years, supplying to several water, telecoms and power distri- bution companies, including notable names such as An- glian Water, Network Rail, O2, and National Grid. Their insight and exper- tise are highly valued within the sector, as reflected by the key role they play in delivering security solutions that align with the Security and Emergency Measures Direction (SEMD). Bradbury Group and Lid- dle Doors have successfully worked together in a joint venture for the last couple of years, so the news that Liddle Doors joined Brad- bury Group earlier in ther year, for many was the next logical step, commercially for both brands, as they expand their operations. Bradbury Group’s mass manufacturing power, scale and delivery capac- ity, combined with Liddle Doors’ renowned expertise in the end-to-end manage- ment of projects within the utilities sector, will pro- vide a compelling offer of specialist expertise to their customers. The addition of Liddle Doors to Bradbury Group adds a range of new products and services to the complete security solution package that each division in the Group is able to offer. These include LPS 1175 SR3 and SR4 kiosks, cages and bar sets, hatch covers, bottle clamps, anti-climb solutions, and associated civil works. Ultimately, the vision of this dynamic Group is to establish Bradbury Group as a world-class provider of physical security solutions. As well as its ambition of going global, the Group is also keen to be recognised as a notable business and employer within the North Lincolnshire area. With over 200 employees, the Group is proud to employ an almost entirely regional workforce. Since its relocation to a larger premises the Group’s workforce has grown dramatically, and the aim moving forward is to create more new jobs as the Group continues to expand and support even more clients.
