Established in 1997, Positive Response is a pioneer in the research and development of remote safety monitoring.
Our StaffSafe™ product was originally developed in 2003 and it is now being used in thousands of retail outlets across the UK. It has proved to be particularly useful in lone worker situations and in outlets such as off licenses and petrol stations where anti-social behaviour, verbal abuse and theft can pose real problems for staff. However its application is wide and it is being used in a whole host of situations and working environments.
In February 2015 Foresight VCT plc invested in the Buy-in Management Buy-Out of the business.
David Whittle, formerly Managing Director of Maplin Electronics, has joined the company as CEO, Alan Wilson has taken the position of non-exec Director with Darrel Connell joining as Investment Director.
Ian Hobson, Co-founder and Technical Director of PRC, commented:
“These changes at PRC and our prospects for the future are very exciting and we are delighted to have the support of Foresight in taking the company forward.
Our growing customer base includes companies which are leaders in their respective fields, all of which place the safety of their staff at the core of their businesses. We will be aiming to maintain our leadership in the development of staff safety products and services in the years ahead.”
Darrel Connell, Director of Foresight said:
“Ian and Patricia have built PRC into a dynamic and innovative organisation centred on the safety and wellbeing of their customers’ staff. We look forward to supporting this vision and to working alongside Ian and David to support their ambitions for growing and expanding the business to the benefit of all stakeholders.”
