Signature Materials wins prestigious Metal Theft award

Marked cooper strap

Signature Materials won an award at the British Tansport Police, National Metal Theft Taskforce awards held in London last week.

The award was for the Most Successful Crime Reduction Initiative for the work done marking metals in electricity substations in the North West of England, and was won jointly with Electricity North West and Greater Manchester Police. 

The award recognises the excellent team effort put in by the partners to mark metals at risk along with use of high visibility signage, entry on to our national database and local press coverage. 

The project was part of a 72% reduction in metal theft seen in the North West.
