Thermacore Europe Ltd – Protecting client, staff and business data.
Thermacore Europe Ltd are an industry leading engineering company, with intellectual property at the forefront of their success. Their continual research and development is the basis for the company’s competitive advantage, and as such all of their end of life information requires secure destruction.
The Shred Centre have recognised that confidentiality is of the utmost importance to their client. Since being appointed as a contractor for Thermacore Europe we have helped implement an information destruction policy that shows their commitment to data security in writing and clear to all staff, competitors and clients alike.
The Shred Centre provide a regular shredding service to the company at their site at Wansbeck Business Park in Ashington, which provides substance to the information destruction policy they have in place.
All paper waste at the site is treated as confidential and deposited in secure containers prior to collection. These containers are serviced by fully vetted staff and destroyed at a BSIA approved destruction facility. Certificates of destruction are provided to Thermacore Europe after each destruction and full service records are kept on file to document compliance to their policy.
Mark Robinson, Quality HSE(S) Manager for Thermacore says “We take data security very seriously at Thermacore, and so ensuring we appointed the right company to handle our secure waste was essential. The Shred Centre have provided more than just shredding service to us, the team have ensured we have the correct documentation in place to meet our obligations under the data protection act, and offer a secure outlet for our WEEE waste also.”
The Shred Centre recognise that full data security and compliance cannot be achieved through simply providing a document shredding service to businesses, so we take a holistic approach to the Data protection services. We offer a certified destruction for all information bearing media that a business owns, including items such as hard drives, mobile phones, tablets, CD/DVD and USB sticks.
Thermacore Europe utilise these non-paper data destruction services to ensure that no data leaves their organisation that is not supposed to. This activity not only secures their competitive advantage but also greately mitigates the risk of falling foul of a £500,000 penalty which is the Information Commissioners Office has the authority to issue in respect of failing to comply with the obligations of the data protection act.
“As a local, family run, north east businesses we are delighted to be helping a global leader based in our region. Thermacore are clearly dedicated to ensuring their customers, staff and business information is kept safe and secure. Mark and his team at Thermacore have been proactive and diligent when it comes to their secure disposal, it has been a pleasure to work with them and we hope to continue our working relationship for a long time.” Patrick Stephens, Managing Director of The Shred Centre.
