Barkley Plastics Gain Investors in People

We are delighted to announce that all our hard work has resulted in being awarded the Investors in People accreditation.

Brian Webb implemented an NVQ based training programme that over 30 operators and toolmakers achieved in Autumn 2006. This new investment in training and development, spearheaded by MD Graham Robinson, has been the platform to achieving Investors in People.

Child Safety Net

Market leading security company Global Security One (GSEC1) asked Barkley Plastics to develop the case cover for the pioneering XGate – a security device that lets parents immediately oversee and control a child’s online activity in a chat room from a mobile phone.

The product has been met with great enthusiasm from leading child protection agencies such as Kidscape and Child 1st in Scotland, dedicated to making sure children surf the net freely while being protected against paedophiles.

The sleek look of the XGate has come from the technical expertise provided by Barkley Plastics, who has been involved in the cover moulding from concept stage through to manufacture.
