Founded in 1962 Clancy Plant has grown from strength to strength mainly due to its focus in meeting customer’s needs – whatever they may be. And with the ever present spectre of theft Clancy is the first major plant hire company to adopt the latest in the fight against criminals targeting small handheld power tools – MicroCESAR.
MicroCESAR uses Datatag security marking technologies to give each piece of equipment a unique and permanent ‘fingerprint’ that thieves cannot remove. Using a combination of a unique Datatag RFID transponder and a tamper proof warning/registration label with an integrated QR code MicroCESAR provides the Police with quick and easy verification of ownership without the need for special equipment or lengthy laboratory testing.
As an added bonus the Datatag technology used in the MicroCESAR system can also be used to assist in stock management helping companies track tools in and out of jobs and allowing users to easily access on-line health and safety advice and user manuals through the unique QR code and mobile enabled MicroCESAR website.
Datatag Managing Director Kevin Howells comments, “We’re very pleased to welcome on board Clancy Plant. MicroCESAR, I’m confident, will echo the success we have seen with the main CESAR Scheme and we’ve already received overwhelming industry support. We hope Clancy’s decision to protect their equipment in this way will cause others will follow their lead in the fight against plant crime”.
Bernie Stack Director at Clancy Plant said “With our business focused on customer service we recognise the impact theft of tools can have – by adopting MicroCESAR we are confident that we are putting in place a serious, and proven theft deterrent which can only help our customers and our business too.”
CESAR has been adopted by many of the ‘BIG’ names in the industry including Doosan, JCB, John Deere, Manitou and Merlo and Clancy Plant will be the first end user company to adopt MicroCESAR. Others are set to follow protecting a range of construction and landscaping equipment such as power tools, cut-off saws, hand-held hydraulic breakers and compaction plates.
