Data Destruction Birmingham
More recently the region has become a centre for innovation, technology and enterprise – particularly in the automotive sector where the car and rail industry has become a major source of employment. Now the automotive plants like Land Rover in Solihull and the new JLR plant on the M54 at i54 are highly automated there are many thousands employed in sub-assembly plants and components manufacturing. The Parts Alliance (Head Office in Solihull) supplies the automotive trade with parts and accessories. The logistics operations that keep the plants operating are a huge source of employment in the West Midlands. Whilst the plants are highly sophisticated the West Midlands has become the centre of excellence for development of automotive technology with research and experimental laboratories across the region. The protection of intellectual property makes the use of a professional data destruction firm like Topwood essential to retaining competitive advantage.
With a modern fleet of shred trucks, Topwood is 100% Euro 6 which means we will be 100% compliant with new proposed Birmingham city centre low emission zone (LEZ). Users of on-site shredding services should review their suppliers; non-compliant vehicles will face costs of up to £100 per day which could be passed on to their customers. The new LEZ will include the Jewellery quarter, Ladywood, Highgate, Digbeth. Vehicles on the A38 Queensway, even those not stopping in the city centre but going between South and North Birmingham will also be charged. The most polluted roads in Birmingham are the A38, Eastgate and Suffolk Street Queensway.
