GAP Group, the UK's largest independent plant and tool hirer, has specified the fitment of CESAR security and registration on an order for an additional 170 site dumpers from Terex.

GAP Group operates a nationwide network in excess of 60 depots from Inverness to St Austell and Norwich to Swansea. The new Terex site dumpers, ranging in size from 1.0t to 9.0t will be delivered from early October onwards and will conform to the new Stage 111B legislation. Deliveries will be spread across the depot network at a time when building work and the demand for site equipment is finally on the increase after the severe recession in the industry.

Iain Anderson, GAP’s Joint Managing Director, comments, "Sadly equipment theft is a fact of life that impacts on our customers and us. A stolen machine causes site disruption that our customers can do without and so we do everything we can to minimise the risk. Fitting CESAR is a sensible precaution and a proven way to minimise the risk of theft."

CESAR, which acts as a powerful deterrent against theft and an invaluable aid in recovery, works by giving each piece of equipment a unique and permanent ‘fingerprint’ using a mix of state of the art security marking technology, supplied by Datatag, that includes tamper evident triangular registrations plates, Radio-frequency identification (RFID) transponders, forensic liquid DNA and microscopic Datadots®. The new GAP dumpers will join over 125,000 other pieces of equipment protected by CESAR, the world’s most successful security and registration scheme.
