September 2014: Record Breaking Year

With figures due to be published later in the year, Kingsley Plastics Group Chairman is delighted to confirm the company's notice of results for the year end of September 2014. Kevin goes on to explain:

'Over the past couple of years we have had to let go of one or two smaller and less profitable contracts in favour of our ever increasing portfolio of products. 

What we have been able to achieve in such a short time is nothing short of amazing and a testament to all the staff at Kingsley both on the shop-floor and office alike. 

4 years ago we started our journey into the UK's LPCB Security Rated market place and have, within that time firmly established ourselves as the UK's most competitive & overall market leader for Security Rated GRP Housings to levels of SR2, SR3 and the World’s First ever GRP approval to SR4.

With the security and some utility markets taking a breather we have in the past 18 months further strengthened our reputation and customer base within markets by where there are no other GRP companies currently operating. 

This, in turn, has reaped many rewards for both ourselves and our customers alike, and have been the main reason behind our double-digit growth this year in both the group's turnover & its pre-tax profits'.

With further projects, frameworks and new lines of business shortly to commence, the future for Kingsley and 2015's figures appear extremely favourable.

March 2013 - LPCB 1175 SR4 Certification

World’s first certified SR4 GRP Enclosure 

Kingsley Plastics are pleased to announce our full certification to LPCB 1175, Series 7 Security Rating SR4. Being the first to market for such a high standard in manufacturing within the security industry, this is yet another important milestone in Kingsley's history of providing the very latest in design, technology and setting the boundaries for future GRP manufacturing within the UK market.

Already setting improved standards with the largest certified sizes available to the market, Kingsley's new range of SR4 GRP Enclosures & Housings are available in sizes up to 35mtrs in length, 15mtrs in depth & 5mtrs in height. Coupled with this Kingsley again are the only certified company within the UK able to supply approved GRP Enclosures & Housings to LPCB 1175 SR2, SR3 & now SR4 with the following options:

  • Up to 35mtrs width x 15mtrs depth & 5mtrs high
  • Approved external finishes include Sooth gloss, simulated Brick, Stone & pebbledash finishes
  • Internal/External bolting down anchors according to rating
  • Single & Double door options complete with above door transoms
  • Ready assembled or 'flat-pack' options according to site access requirements
  • Any colour from both the RAL or BS4800 range of colours

Richard Flint of the BRE commenting when presenting Kingsley with their certificate at the Home Office-sponsored Security and Policing Exhibition in Farnborough said:

‘This is a remarkable achievement. When GRP manufacturers first approached us for approval of their enclosures to LPS1175 a couple of years ago it was generally perceived that the materials used to form such enclosures were not conducive with delivering the levels of resistance to attack required to achieve Security Rating 4.

Kingsley Plastics’ have demonstrated their ability to tackle such design challenges and, in doing so, have achieved the first approval for a GRP enclosure to Security Rating 4, enabling them to supply into markets previously dominated by steel enclosures.
