B&M Secure Shredding has been appointed by Cammell Laird to securely shred documents relating to the new Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.
Paul Coles, Technical Office Manager (CVF Project), Cammell Laird said: “Building the flight decks for the Royal Navy’s Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier has been a huge project for Cammell Laird. Choosing to work with a secure shredding company that is a BSIA member, ISO 9001 quality and BS15713 approved, will ensure that the documents relating to the project are destroyed compliantly. Using a local secure shredding company, has also meant that Cammell Laird has been able to generate further work on Wirral, even with phase one of the project now approaching completion for us.”
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) member company will be securely destroying over 20,000 drawings which relate to the flight decks for the largest ship ever built for the Royal Navy. The new Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier flight decks will leave the Cammell Laird ship yard this week to make the journey to Scotland. To ensure maximum security of the new aircraft carrier, the drawings will be destroyed in a gated vehicle with a large shredding blade, by CRB approved drivers, on-site at Cammell Laird. The shredded documents will then be sent for recycling locally, to reduce the project’s impact on the environment.
