Highway Care rises to expectations

06/12/2019

Barrier supplier Highway Care has unveiled its new offices in Sittingbourne, to accommodate its ‘ever-expanding team’.

The firm, which is a supplier and installer of specialist highway and security, road barrier systems and mobile traffic products for the traffic management industry, moved its office staff last month to purpose-built offices in the Kent town.

Managing director Antony Butcher said: 'These purpose built, modern, open plan offices will help portray a more professional image of Highway Care as we strive to meet the rising expectations of our customers, partners and stakeholders.

'I hope staff and clients alike, will agree this is a positive step in the growth and development of the business.'

The operational depot at Detling Hill still exists and will continue to stay in operation, with key operational management staff remaining on site along with vehicle maintenance and yard space for BG800 barrier storage and other systems and products.

The firm said its offices at Detling Hill had become cramped as the team started to rapidly expand and dedicated office space was desperately needed.

The commercial team also have access to more comfortable meeting room spaces.

Four roles are currently being recruited for and Denne Court are the perfect premises to house the ever-expanding team. Highway Care is searching for a commercial manager, sales administrator, finance apprentice and a business development manager to operate.

The firm said the office move is 'the perfect opportunity' to launch and reaffirm its mission, vision and values: to be a global leader of highway and physical security solutions; innovative solutions for a safer future; and integrity, honesty and trust.

Health and care

Highway Care's managing director, Antony Butcher and sales director Ben Duncker, have completed their Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) two-day course and are qualified Mental Health First Aiders.

This brings our total amount of Mental Health First Aiders at the company to eight.

The company used St John Ambulance's MHFA course, which teaches in-depth skills for providing first aid to people who may be experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and psychosis.

The aim is to provide a comfortable working environment and lift the stigma of mental health issues and take better care of employees. The course also empowers those who take part to support their own mental health and wellbeing.
