News: ZND win Olympic contract


Rotherham-based ZND UK, the market leader in the manufacture and supply of high quality temporary fencing, has secured a deal to supply the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London this summer.

ZND will be supplying around 85 kilometres of pedestrian barriers for use by The Metropolitan Police at a huge range of events for the hundred of thousands of people who will visit the Capital each day.

The Met has a key role in planning and delivering an operation that, together with partners, will keep the Games safe and secure.

With more than 10 million tickets being sold and over 200 countries participating, the Games are the world's biggest sporting event and will see the Met mount the largest ever peacetime policing operation in its history.

It will run for 64 days, and cover over 1,000 venues including those hosting Olympic and Paralympic sports, cultural events and 2012 themed celebrations taking place across the Capital. Venues include the Olympic Park, Wembley Stadium, Horse Guards Parade and Wimbledon.

15 kilometres of police barriers and 70 kilometres of standard barriers will be transported from Rotherham as part of the order.

ZND are specialists in the design and manufacturing of temporary fencing for crowd containment purposes. Their facility on Barbot Hall industrial estate manufactures more than 17,500 meters of temporary fencing per day.

ZND UK was established in 1997 as part of the ZND Group. Their 173,000 sq ft premises also includes a bespoke production line for their SmartWeld 100 fencing range.

In 2010, the company supplied 61 kilometres of fencing for the 2010 Commonwealth Games being held in Delhi.
