Lone Worker Solutions
Lone Worker Solutions has set up its new base in a 3,000 sq ft unit on Crown Business Park in Castleton. It describes itself as one of the UK’s leading companies providing technology to help people who work alone.
Their key product ‘Safe Hub’ connects lone workers to a state-of-the-art Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). GSM 2-way audio lets users talk directly to the ARC when they need support. Advanced GPS means they can direct emergency service to the exact location in the fastest possible time, bypassing 999 call centres.
The company was looking for new premises to help it grow and meet an increasing demand for its services. It was given advice and support by the council and Rochdale Development Agency, who helped to source the right building and location for the burgeoning business. After months of negotiations, the firm decided that Rochdale’s excellent transport links and ambitious plans for growth made it the ideal place to relocate to.
