Preformed Markings Ltd – the UK & Ireland’s premier supplier of thermoplastic safety markings – is celebrating its continued growth in the stadia and venue marketplace.
Spectator safety has always been a key focus for the company, but its continued investment in product innovation for this sector has resulted in an increased demand from stadiums and arenas throughout the UK, even greater than originally expected.
Preformed Markings have just completed an extensive refurbishment of the stands and public areas at championship side, Charlton Athletic FC. As part of a major safety and renovation program, the Club appointed the company to provide slip resistant products for the steps and vomitories, in all four stands.
Andy Curtis, Head of Facilities Management at Charlton Athletic said:
The ground has been transformed; the steps and concourses and public areas look like new. In fact, the entire stadium looks newly built. With the innovate approach and customer engagement taken by Preformed Markings we have moved the Club forward in terms of look and feel and more importantly safety. The ground needed a lot of work, and the Club has heavily invested in improvements during the closed season, but the results far outreach our initial expectations and we have to thank all those who worked with us over the summer, especially your team.
With improving spectator safety being an integral part of many club’s current redevelopment and new build plans, it’s understandable to learn that the company has many additional projects currently in the pipeline.
Jerry Peachment, Head of Stadium Development at Preformed Markings said:
We are already discussing solutions with a wide range of sporting and public venues, both in the UK and overseas. Our aim is to assist the facilities managers and help resolve this integral area of spectator safety. Our expertise in both product knowledge and application will help make the facilities managers job that little bit easier. Thanks to 3 years of continuous research and development and consultation with leading industry professionals, we have produced specific products for the stadia market that address recurring safety issues. This is a key sector for us and we will continue to devote significant resources to helping the industry improve safety at sports venues throughout the globe.
