Rapid Progress Propels Zonegreen to 3,000 Orders

Rail safety specialist, Zonegreen, part of the Sentric Safety Group, is marking a major milestone in its 16-year history, having just secured its 3,000th order.

The Sheffield-based company’s achievement comes only three years after it signed its 2,000th contract, highlighting its rapid pace of development. By comparison, it took five years to reach 1,000 orders and a further four and a half to make it to 2,000.

Zonegreen achieved this latest landmark after agreeing a deal to service its flagship Depot Personnel Protection System (DPPS) at Northern Rail’s Newton Heath facility in Manchester. It will see the company visit bi-annually to service and maintain the safety system, which controls the movement of rail vehicles in depot environments to protect staff.

Christian Fletcher, Zonegreen’s head of engineering, said:

“Our progress in the last three years has been phenomenal and we are really pleased to reach this latest milestone in such a short timeframe. Our growing reputation worldwide and the viability of our intuitive DPPS have led new depots to approach us for protection and existing clients to expand and update their systems. We continue to enhance our suite of safety products and look forward to seeing where the next 1,000 orders take us.”

Last year, Zonegreen became part of the Sentric Safety Group, one of the world’s leading providers of safety solutions, which has opened up more opportunities to expand the company’s reach. Its technology is currently protecting people across the UK, Australia and the United Arab Emirates, removing the risk of human error from inherently dangerous rail depots.

Gemma Houghton, Sentric’s head of rail, said:

“Our mission is to ensure the long-term protection of people, productivity and business reputation. Zonegreen is a perfect ambassador for our group, doing exactly that through the development of innovative technology and vast sector experience. The firm’s reputation continues to grow at an exceptional rate, yet it remains focused on upholding the excellent relationships it has with clients. This includes leading brands such as Network Rail, Siemens and Hitachi, to name but a few.”

DPPS is the most thoroughly tested and proven in use depot protection system on the market, offering full traceability and ease of modification to allow future upgrades.
