“If you want your tools safe, The Big Ugly is the way to go”

Secured by Design member company The Big Ugly’s large container box has thwarted criminals attempting to steal tools from a construction site in Hertfordshire.

Criminals forced their way into a large storage container on the construction site which housed a variety of equipment but once inside couldn’t force their way into The Big Ugly’s large container box containing the tools.

Lindsey the manager at The Big Ugly said: “It's regrettable to learn that another groundworks company has fallen victim to career criminals targeting their site. However, it's reassuring to note that the Big Ugly Box has effectively deterred these criminals, ensuring that all the tools stored within it remain in the possession of the company”. 

Doug Skins, Secured by Design, said: “I am pleased to hear that The Big Ugly’s large container box has thwarted these criminals. We know that plant equipment and tools on construction sites are an attractive target for criminals, as they are of high value when selling on, and the loss of any essential tools used on construction sites is devastating. High quality products like those provided by The Big Ugly are a welcome addition to the defence against this type of crime”.
