CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT SECURITY PATHFINDERS RECOGNISED BY THE INDUSTRY

News Image

The Construction Equipment Association (CEA), the organisation behind Plantworx and the only official equipment security scheme CESAR, organised a 'Police Aware Workshop' on the final day (May 16th) of the inaugural Plantworx exhibition. The seminar, attended by over 100 serving police officers, was designed to raise awareness of the growing problem of equipment theft and to make police officers aware of the many benefits of the CESAR scheme. CESAR is fitted by most leading manufacturers and over 75% of new construction equipment in the UK is now delivered with CESAR.

The team behind CESAR took the opportunity to make a number of presentations, at the close of the seminar, to people and organisations that have made a significant contribution to equipment security in the past few years and who have worked to make CESAR such a success.
