£1m fund­ing helps CCTV com­pany to fo­cus on growth

Rochdale Observer - - BUSINESS - Stu­art.greer@men­media.co.uk @Stu­ar­tGreer

ASURVEILLANCE sys­tems man­u­fac­turer is eye­ing up growth thanks to a £1m fund­ing pack­age.

Wire­less CCTV Ltd (WCCTV), based in Rochdale, which spe­cialises in pro­vid­ing re­de­ploy­able CCTV, site se­cu­rity, body worn cam­eras and time lapse video ser­vices, will use the fund­ing pack­age to pur­chase ad­di­tional CCTV mo­bile tow­ers and body-worn cam­eras.

This fresh wave of in­vest­ment will en­able the 17-year old busi­ness to in­crease its sales ca­pac­ity and work with a greater num­ber of UKbased build­ing, mo­tor­way and rail­way con­struc­tion firms that use the com­pany’s re­de­ploy­able CCTV tow­ers.

The busi­ness will now be able to grow its body­worn cam­eras of­fer­ing which has seen enor­mous suc­cess in the re­tail sec­tor as well as with emer­gency ser­vices per­son­nel.

Over the next year HSBC UK fund­ing is ex­pected to support the cre­ation of 10 jobs and ap­pren­tice­ships in WCCTV and boost turnover for the com­pany by 15 per cent.

James Thorn­hill, fi­nance di­rec­tor at WCCTV, said: “We needed to re­in­force our prod­uct of­fer­ing to con­tinue driv­ing sales and the fi­nan­cial support we have re­ceived from HSBC has en­abled us to do this.

“We have no­ticed a rise in the num­ber of com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions want­ing to use our in­tel­li­gent sur­veil­lance de­vices in a re­mote ca­pac­ity so we needed to en­sure the busi­ness’ stock sup­plies could meet this de­mand.”

Jonathan Rut­ter, cor­po­rate re­la­tion­ship di­rec­tor at HSBC UK, added: “The breadth and scope of WCCTV’s busi­ness is really quite stag­ger­ing. From build­ing and in­fra­struc­ture con­struc­tion com­pa­nies to small, in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers and na­tion­wide pub­lic ser­vice de­part­ments, WCCTV has a range of prod­ucts and ser­vices that have the po­ten­tial to reach cor­ners of a busi­ness.

“I hope HSBC’s support gives WCCTV the im­pe­tus to har­ness this di­ver­sity and con­tinue its growth and ex­pan­sion across the coun­try.” all
