Chubb secures new warehousing for leading logistics firm


Chubb, one of the UK’s leading fire safety and security solutions providers, is celebrating a brand-new partnership with the Rhenus Group, one of the globally leading logistics service providers. Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK has selected Chubb to provide security for the company’s major new warehouse development at Baytree, Nuneaton.

The brand-new sustainable development, known as the ‘Rhenus Campus’, will be home to two warehouses, totalling one million square feet – the equivalent of 36 football pitches.
Chubb has designed and created comprehensive security solutions that will protect and secure Rhenus’ assets so the logistics expert can provide efficient storage, B2B and B2C order fulfilment, value-added services and returns management to its customers across a range of sectors.

Following Chubb’s recommendation, Rhenus has selected an integrated security system that consists of access control, CCTV, and intruder alarms. The access control features Protégé GX by ICT, while the 350-plus cameras operate on Hikvision – a brand Rhenus already uses at other sites.

The Rhenus Campus will be operating 24/7/365, and Chubb will give Rhenus confidence that its site is protected and remotely monitored by its operatives at the Nottingham-based Alarm Receiving Centre.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the Rhenus Group to provide security for its new campus,” said David Jackson, Sales Executive at Chubb. “Our team of experts have done an incredible job consulting Rhenus on all its security needs and identifying opportunities to make sure security is as efficient and effective as possible. “We are excited to be able to help a rapidly growing and ambitious organisation secure its most valuable resources – people, property, and assets.”

The Rhenus Group is a global logistics company with operations in over 60 countries. The company provides a wide range of logistics services, including warehousing, transportation, and distribution.

“We’re proud to be partnering with such a reputable and reliable security provider in Chubb Fire and Security,” said Mike Gamble, Operations Director at Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK. “We have complete peace of mind that our campus is fully protected and always monitored thanks to the connected services provided by Chubb.” The first phase of the project is complete, with Rhenus opening the first of its two warehouses. The second site is due to open later this year.
