Heras today announces that from April 2018, installation experts, Darfen Durafencing will become part of the Heras brand, positioning the company as the UK’s first end-to-end perimeter protection supplier. Heras will now be able to fulfil its nationwide perimeter protection contracts with its own installation team.
The move is the final step in Heras’ expansion, and follows the integration of Broughton and Geoquip into the Heras brand, which together enabled the company to consolidate all aspects of perimeter protection and improve management, integration and service across the business. Heras can now manage the entire process from design and delivery through to installation, inspection and maintenance, allowing teams to work to the same unified vision and meet individual customer requirements every time.
Heras UK’s installation manager, Graham England, says; “We’ve experienced growing customer demand for a single, reliable provider to meet all their perimeter protection requirements. In response, our ‘One Heras’ approach gives customers access to a full range of products, resources, project management and experienced field engineers, relieving any burden from their internal teams.”
Darfen is the UK market leader in the supply and installation of permanent fencing and access control systems. The company has worked alongside Heras under the Heras parent company, CRH, umbrella for over 20 years. Darfen has over 100 years’ experience and is renowned for providing the highest quality products and operations with its team of expert engineers. It remains at the forefront of standards and innovation, operating with the latest ISO9001(2015) certification. In February 2018, Darfen received the British Standards Institute’s 30 Years Award of Excellence. Heras looks forward to becoming a one-stop-shop, a unified team across all aspects of perimeter protection, active in making the world safer.
