"We do not compromise on quality"

Grease Monkey, the Edinburgh based bicycle and active travel infrastructure company, have joined Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

Grease Monkey design, manufacture, operate and maintain active travel infrastructure across the UK. Established over a decade ago to cater to the needs of British cyclists, they focus on delivering the highest quality, sustainable products and services to clients worldwide.

All Grease Monkey solutions are designed for maximum safety, security and usability for the wider community. Manufactured in the UK using the highest quality components and skill, the company’s products are tested to ensure the longest possible lifespan, therefore reducing waste. All individual components are designed, repaired, refurbished, reused and eventually recycled.

Grease Monkey’s Veloboxes, which provide storage for up to six bikes, have recently achieved Secured by Design accreditation. They offer a secure solution to long-term cycle parking and are an effective way to protect bikes from tough weather conditions, vandalism and theft.

David Wray, Managing Director of Grease Monkey, said: “To have achieved accreditation with Secured by Design is a recognition of how Grease Monkey strives for excellence in relation to security and quality.

“We do not compromise on quality; providing products of the highest standard in the marketplace ensures sustainability and peace of mind to our clients.”

Kenny McHugh, Secured by Design, commented: “I’m really pleased that Grease Monkey have chosen to join Secured by Design. Their Veloboxes, which are Secured by Design accredited, are a great solution to potential bicycle security issues. I look forward to working with Grease Monkey over the coming years.”
