Mesh fencing manufacturer Zaun has appointed a new designer to its ranks.
Frank Archer from Wolverhampton has joined the design team, reporting to research and development manager Adam Christie.
He joins following stints in 3D design and e-commerce at an exhibition set and shop designer for furniture businesses, such as Duresta and Kesterport, and building an eBay store for aftermarket car parts business Energized Customs.
Archer initially studied aerospace engineering at the University of Bristol with the plan of joining the RAF, but a diagnosis of colour blindness prevented him from becoming a pilot. He switched to a BSc in CAD and construction at Wolverhampton University.
Christie said: “We’re delighted to have Frank Archer on board at a time when we are developing ever more secure fencing systems and the business is growing with massive new orders.”
Zaun Limited is the sole remaining manufacturer of welded and woven mesh fencing systems manufacturing the UK’s entire system. Zaun makes the mesh, fencing panels, posts, clamp bars and fixings at its state-of-the-art five-acre production facility in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Products have been tested and approved by testing organisations, including CPNI, LPCB and Secured by Design.
Zaun works very closely with all stakeholders within the business, including employees, local, national and international suppliers and a long-established customer base of fencing contractors to design, manufacture and supply high-quality fencing systems, increasingly often providing expertise in integrating PIDs and other systems into holistic security solutions.
Zaun was founded in 1996 and remained a private company solely owned by co-founder Alastair Henman with a regional office in Dubai. It manufactures to ISO 9001 standards. It is also a member of the Perimeter Security Suppliers’ Association (PSSA), of which Alastair Henman is a director.
Zaun is a proud British manufacturer and founder of the Made in Britain campaign, a key player in the UK fencing market and one of the fastest-growing companies in an increasingly competitive industry.
