McBride plc, the leading UK-based provider of private label household and personal care products, has decided to extend an initial one-year contract with Pilgrims for a further two years.

McBride’s factories receive raw product and dispatch finished products ready for the shelves. Pilgrims provides manned guarding and security consultancy: evaluating, testing and advising on policies, procedures and equipment for the organisation’s four UK locations in Bradford, Barrow in Furness, Hull and Manchester.

Pilgrims Contract Development Manager Anthony Wisdom said: “McBride has seen the immediate benefit of what we achieve for them. Our operational tool MinEval™ has been used to very good effect, enabling us to review the current set up and make numerous recommendations which they agreed with and have acted upon. These have benefitted their sites and mitigated risk to the business.”

Pilgrims bespoke service for McBride has been developed using the company’s extensive experience and specialism of multi-site contracts. The team has also drawn on intelligence from Pilgrims Information division, which monitors up to the minute, external risk factors.

McBride, which has operations in several European countries, is also considering rolling out Pilgrims’ TravelSafe™ training and tracking of all McBride employees when travelling the globe, interfacing with the Pilgrims Operational Consultancy division.

Looking longer term and, providing the effectiveness is proved, McBride is also looking at the capability of Pilgrims operations centre to oversee and standardise everything they do, across several sites in Europe.
