One Man, Eighty Defenders
“We’ve taken great steps since last week to ensure that each and every vehicle is as safe as it can possibly be within our facility. Everything has been brought into our main building from engine parts to interiors, our roller doors have been bolted down securely and all COSHH substances have been safely stored away. As well as our state-of-the-art security system, we also have dedicated security onsite 24/7 doing regular walkarounds; all this to put not only our minds at ease but our customers too.
The whole team understands how precious these vehicles are to their owners because they are just as precious to the people that build them. When I’m not dealing with site security, I’ll be carefully detailing a number of client builds that are very close to being finished. I’m a Defender owner myself and have worked on Arkonik builds since I was a teenager, so will enjoy spending quality time with my favourite vehicles.”
