Biosite donates biometric access control system to support community intiative

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News

Biosite revealed that it has donated a biometric access control system, turnstile and pod to support the current construction of the Grenfell Community Centre. The community center initiative was launched after the Grenfell Tower fire last year at a block of public housing flats in West London that caused 71 deaths and more than 70 injuries.

Biosite offers biometric access control and workforce management solutions to facilitate safe and secure sites for the construction sector. This project will take a few months to build and Biosite reports that they were more than happy to offer any assistance they could.

“As soon as I got the call I knew this was a project we needed to fully support,” said Li Wang, Biosite Managing Director. “It’s such a great cause and we supplied our access control system, turnstile and pod to the site as quickly as we could, all at our own expense.”

In December 2016 Biosite secured £4 million ($5.9M USD) of growth capital from Mobeus Equity Partners. Last year Bristol-based operation BAM Western selected Biosite to provide a standardized access control system for all of its construction sites.
