A 300% Rise in Machinery Theft Across The UK

Rural and agricultural communities across the UK are facing an alarming surge in criminal activity, with the police reporting a shocking 300% rise in machinery theft in the first quarter of 2023.

As valuable assets such as tractors, excavators and other heavy machinery are often left unattended in remote areas, they have become prime targets for thieves. The impact of such thefts goes beyond the loss of expensive equipment, as it can also result in operational downtime, increased insurance costs, and a sense of insecurity in rural communities.

As a leading supplier of machinery tracking and alarm systems, we are seeing a rapidly growing demand for security measures by farmers that are concerned about their business operations.
