Security and safety specialist Reflex is celebrating a high flying success at Leeds Bradford International Airport.

The Rotherham company supplied a host of new technological enhancements for the airport’s £11 million passenger terminal, which was officially opened by Foreign Secretary William Hague last month.

Reflex provided additional support for existing systems, video surveillance upgrades for both the passenger and airside areas, while also carrying out a major overhaul of access control systems.

Leeds Bradford Airport’s Tim Beynon said: “Reflex understands our environments and the demands upon us.

“As a border control authority we have to work to strict Government guidelines and if systems fail for any reason, our airport closes and the knock-on effects can be significant, both commercially and from a public perception perspective.”

Reflex has been working at the airport since 2005.

“Partnering with a company like Reflex is critical to the smooth day-to-day running of the airport and we have been pleased with how the relationship has developed into a genuine partnership over the years,” Mr Beynon added.

Reflex operations director Steve Ward said: “Reflex contributes regularly to the planning and maintenance regime at the airport, so our contract represents much more of a partnering relationship than a traditional supplier-client relationship.

“We feed our sector expertise into the management system at LBIA and for their part they keep us abreast of the latest national and global changes that require action in terms of systems and planning.”
