ProtectAVan delivers comprehensive security package for The Nurture Group’s Ford e-Transit vans

23rd May 2024

Northgate has turned to TVL Group for the supply and installation of an array of vehicle security products for new Ford e-Transit electric vans for its customer the Nurture Group.

Nurture Group is a specialist in grounds maintenance, landscape construction, plant displays and pest control services working predominantly in urban areas. With a strong safety, compliance, and governance culture, they are very focused on vehicle security to keep both their colleagues safe and equipment protected.

Laura Moran, Managing Director, TVL Group, says: “Maximising vehicle security is critical for companies like the Nurture Group given the diverse array of tools and equipment it transports every day, which is why we were delighted itself and Northgate placed their trust in TVL Group to keep these new vans protected.

“As more businesses accelerate their transition from diesel vehicles, this latest order underlines ProtectAVan’s ability to work on not just diesel, but electric and other alternatively-fuelled vans too.”

ProtectAVan has been able to quickly complete Northgate’s order courtesy of its recent investment in its company headquarters, which added extra working, storage and parking space while also allowing it to welcome its vehicle fit-out specialist arm ProtectAVan back to the site.

Northgate’s order includes TVL’s award-winning ArmourShell. This sees an external, semi-automatic lock with anti-drill inserts and a hardened steel locking bolt installed, all protected with a unique, angled body designed to deflect direct hammer blows.

TVL’s HookLock is also onboard, seeing the installation of a secondary mortice lock – which works independently of the vehicle manufacturer’s main system – that throws a hook into a specially designed keep, making it incredibly difficult to force apart.

Rear-and side-door mounted ProtektaPlates have also been installed, which not only act as clear visual deterrents but also see internal anti-drill manganese steel plates installed to prevent thieves from accessing the vehicle using work tools.

Completing the build, ProtectAVan has also fitted a low-profile roof vent, grey phenolic floor, a VSWD lightbar, a Mounted Pro Step and a towbar to the ten electric vans.

Spencer Davi, Northgate’s Sales Director said: “We work with each of our customers to develop a bespoke solution for their specific operating needs and that includes vehicle security. The TVL security solution maximises vehicle security for the Nurture Group’s fleet of e-Transits,” he added.

Northgate has supplied vehicles to the Nurture Group since 2018.
