As we bid a fond farewell to 2023, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on another successful year here at Parksafe Group. This year has been an incredible journey, and we are delighted to announce a 40% increase on year-on-year turnover, with 15% more product units sold compared with 2022.

We continue to expand our current product range and reinvest the growth, whilst sharing our success with our employees by introducing our Employee Profit Share Incentive (sharing is caring)!

 

 

Customer service has been a huge part of our success in growth, and is one of our core values as a business. We continually strive to provide an exceptional level of service to our customers and this year we have dedicated time investing in our knowledgeable team, with a 20% expansion on staff. And working to expand certain departments Including technical support and after sales.

Here are some of the highlights:

Award Winning Products!

Throughout 2023 Parksafe Group have been recognised by many leading professionals, we have also received an incredible industry response for our innovative Low Bridge Detection System (LBDS), which was designed by our product engineers in-house in the UK and officially launched in June.

 

Our revolutionary product has undergone positive trials with Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd, Harlow Timber Group & GBA Logistics (to name just a few), and we have been honoured to have won the Operators Choice Award at RouteONE’s Innovation Challenge 2023 and shortlisted for the Safety Innovation award at the Commercial Motor Awards.
