Sonic windows in liquidation brings fresh new blood to the rail network!!
26 August 2016
In November 2015, Sonic Windows announced through their website, that they had ceased trading and that the company had been placed into liquidation.To many within in the industry, this came as a bit of a shock, but for Sec2’s Managing Director (Jon Jeffery) and Sales Manager (James Driver) this became an opportunity.
Just prior to the closure of Sonic Windows, Sec2 had been approached to review supply of speech transfer systems and cash handling products. They had become dissatisfied with their current provider and were looking to strengthen the existing trading relationship with Sec2.
The rail sector was already an established part of the Sec2 maintenance offering, both directly and through third party FM providers.
Sec2’s strategic business plan was to introduce its own range of innovative ticket office solutions into the rail industry. The demise of Sonic windows immediately open the channels of communication to many of the Train Operating Companies that had previously been off limits, due to agreements in place with sonic.
One such customer was Govia Thameslink Railway that had already instigated a refurbishment project for Southwick station ticket office. With a tight timescale in place, they were left without an immediate supplier to carry out the counter, screen and furniture supply and installation works. Sec2’s Managing Director put in place a Reactive Project Team to facilitate not only a new relationship, but a superbly finished ticket office facility. This project was delivered within budget and Completed within the timescales required.
On the back of this successful project delivery, GTR have commissioned Sec2 to carry out and deliver further technically challenging projects.
