Kingdom Team are ‘Heroes’ for Cadbury’s Site in Bourneville during Major Gas Leak

A huge well done to the Kingdom Security team whilst on duty at the Cadbury’s site in Bourneville. Up to 800 people were evacuated from the offices in Birmingham after a gas leak was identified from the Kingdom team.

During maintenance work by a third party, a 150mm medium pressure MDPE gas main was severely damaged during routine road repairs. The Kingdom Security team recognised the situation and acted promptly, efficiently and with great professionalism.

Simon Smith, Core Services Engineering Manager for the Chocolate Manufacturer commented:
“I would like to officially thank the Security Team for the initial response, speed with which they contacted the emergency services and the gas team – Cadent. Also for them creating an exclusion zone, which contains two smoking areas. The team were doing this while they were still within the exclusion zone, making sure that the OHD and BVP were evacuated in an orderly fashion.

Shelter was even arranged in the Cadbury Club for the evacuated due to the inclement weather. The flexibility and dedication shown by the team was great with some of the lads working hours way beyond their shift end time.

Also for the work they did until the Fire Service and Cadent left site at about 01.15. Thanks for the support – great Job – Well done by all.”

Mark Wallace, Chief Operating Officer (COO) commented; “We are all very proud of the Kingdom team, the training measures we have in place ensure on any situation similar to the Cadbury’s site that the teams understand the response needed, whilst keeping calm and professional. We are delighted to hear the feedback, the team will be recognised and rewarded for their achievements.”
