Zaun fence off Olympic Park

10 July 2009

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games offers a number of commercial opportunities for businesses, large and small, across the whole of Britain.

One company that has benefited is Zaun Limited, Fencing System Manufacturers and Installers, in Wolverhampton.

Two tier one contractors issued a joint tender to design, manufacture, supply and install a new high security fence and gates, around the 17 kilometer perimeter of the Olympic Park site in Stratford, east London. The fence will be 5 meters high, with 7 meter high lighting & CCTV columns every 25 meters. The tender was posted on the CompeteFor system in summer 2008.  

Zaun bid for the Olympic Park fencing contract, and was awarded it in August 2008, from a short-list of four.  Planning and preparation has taken place since then, and Zaun started on site in January this year. It is expected to have the fence fully in place by end of 2009.

“During the current economic downturn, winning this contract has been even more important and this success will be shared by our suppliers and our employees, whose jobs are now secured” says Paul Painter Director of Sales and Finance at Zaun.

“Already we have seen a number of other projects come our way as a result of winning this contract. The project is helping Zaun expand, both increasing production space and supporting investment in new plant and equipment.”
