Some PDP Clients

Sometimes, you can tell the type of organisation by the company it keeps. We are exceptionally proud of every single one of our clients. However, due to the sensitive and confidential nature of our business, we are usually not at liberty to reveal as much as we could about who they are and what we actually do for them.
So, we have selected some recent examples of our clients by sector and type of solution to give you a flavour of the PDP difference. Please click on the links below to see more.

RETAIL : Argos

Argos, a key part of Home Retail Group PLC, wished to merge operations between Argos and the newly acquired Homebase Distribution Centre in Wellingborough. They were concerned about a series of potential security issues around the site and the risk it presented to the business.

PDP devised a comprehensive solution to secure the site with a physical solution comprising renewed perimeter fencing, security doors, and effective vehicle and pedestrian access and management systems.

The solution was implemented to time and budget and the client has been pleased with the outcome and lack of issues arising.
