Ammann Equipment has just announced that it’s joined the list of enlightened manufacturers registering machines with the CESAR scheme. Ammann Equipment sells Ammann compaction equipment and Yanmar mini-excavators in the UK. CESAR registration will be provided to customers buying new equipment and financing it through Ammann finance, which accounts for around 85% of all sales. CESAR will be offered as an option to customers who arrange alternative finance.
The official Construction Equipment Security and Registration scheme (CESAR) acts as a powerful deterrent against plant theft and aids identification and recovery in the event of theft. Supported by the Home Office and the Association of Chief Police Officers CESAR is gathering momentum in the construction industry as more and more owners and operators of plant see the benefits. Launched in April 2007 the scheme now has more than 18,000 machines registered. And with Doosan, Merlo, JCB, Manitou, Hanix, Bomag and now Amman fitting the Datatag system and registering new machines that figure is rising monthly.
Commenting on the move Ammann Equipment MD, Robert Brown, had this to say “We’ve watched the growth of CESAR with interest and feel the time is right to offer our customers the significant benefits that the scheme brings. As we finance such a high proportion of our sales it makes sense to secure the equipment as we know that CESAR is now a serious deterrent against theft”.
Chris Harrison, Datatag ID National Sales Manager is delighted to see another well known name in the industry adopting CESAR…… “The news that Ammann Equipment is to fit our security system and register its machines with CESAR is very welcome. The more enlightened manufacturers are now 100% behind the scheme and they’re providing a real benefit to their customers, the construction industry and our community as a whole. With over 18,000 registrations already we’re confident of passing the 20,000 mark by the end of the year.
Construction machines of any age can be registered with CESAR provided the machine has a valid CE mark. Proof of ownership will also need to be established. The Datatag security system can only be fitted by trained technicians who have gone through the criminal record bureau check. The unique CESAR registration plate allocated to each machine is registered with the DVLA off-highway register. This gives the police access to the registration information, at any time of the day or night, through the police national computer. Many leading insurance companies now give discounts on premiums for CESAR registered machines. Many pundits believe crime will increase in the current economic climate making CESAR indispensable.
