CCTV company sets out its vision for growth

Date published: 25 January 2019

WCCTV has secured major new contracts worth over £3m which has enabled them to expand and create new jobs.

The company, which is the market leading operator for CCTV and body worn cameras, has just won contracts with a number of major retailers after developing the world’s first 4G body camera with live transmission.

Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Gilbertson, said: “Since moving onto Kingsway in 2015, staff numbers have increased by 100 per cent, from 35 to 70, and we expect that to increase to 90 by the end of this year and 110 by the end of 2020. Our turnover has also more than doubled, going from £6m to £13.1m.

“We’ve invested a lot in this base because we’ve got the space to expand as the company grows. Between buying the building and repurposing it to accommodate our expanding workforce, we’ve invested almost £2.5m.

“We’ve got a fantastic site here at Kingsway and a really good skills base in Rochdale. Around 10 per cent of our staff are apprentices and many end up in management roles.”

WCCTV customers include local authorities up and down the country, National Grid and Network Rail, as well as major retailers, who are looking to the next generation of body worn cameras to help protect their security staff.
