Meesons adds ‘hostile vehicle mitigation products’ to portfolio

Meesons, a leading UK specialist in entrance control solutions, has announced an exclusive distributor agreement with Perimeter Protection Group (PPG) to distribute its Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) solutions throughout the UK.

PPG claims to ‘lead the world’ in perimeter protection products, with over 65 years’ security experience. Meesons says the agreement gives it ‘exclusivity to a range of high quality HVM solutions that meet internationally recognised approvals’, including PAS68, IWA14-1, ASTM, and UK government approval. The company said: “PPG’s HVM tried and tested products have been installed in a number of high profile locations in the UK and worldwide, where they prevent hostile vehicles reaching their intended targets.”

The HVM products complement Meesons’ existing Security Portals, Speed Gates, and Full Height Turnstiles, specified as anti-tailgating, physical barriers to secure entrance spaces, building façades, and external perimeters. ‘Following the growth and increased threats posed by vehicle-borne attacks over the last few years’, Meesons says it identified the HVM products as ‘key potential additions’ to its product range. It said: “These risks encompass everything from theft and vandalism, to sophisticated or aggressive attack by determined criminals or terrorists, and are exacerbated by the capability of hostile vehicles to carry large explosive devices.”

Meesons says it is supporting the launch of the HVM product range ‘with dedicated resource’ in its commercial team. CEO, Jeremy Terry (pictured left, with PPG CEO, Morten Andreasen): said: “HVM and PPG are a natural fit, strengthening our existing portfolio of entrance control solutions. This agreement will help us build on our relationships with existing and new clients by offering them a complete façade, building, and perimeter security solution. PPG is a well-established European manufacturer of high quality HVM solutions, backed by internationally recognised approvals and we look forward to working together. This is an exciting time for our business, and the agreement with PPG builds on our strengths as the trusted brand in the security industry.”
