truckBloc GmbH undergoes Matador training at Heald HQ

Recently, we were delighted to welcome our German security partner, truckBloc GmbH to our Hornsea HQ. During truckBloc’s visit, they completed our advanced Matador training. 

Since partnering with truckBloc in 2020, we have been proud to export a range of Heald’s patent-protected security bollards, including the shallow and surface mount bollard solution, and the Matador.

Following numerous vehicle and terrorist-related vehicle attacks in Germany, there has been greater importance placed on public venues and spaces to have high-quality perimeter protection in place to ensure public safety. 

The recent training carried out at Heald focused on how to install, service and maintain the Matador to the highest standards. After completing the training, truckBloc received a diploma confirming their accreditation.

The Matador allows access to permitted emergency and delivery vehicles whilst offering the highest anti-ram protection against vehicle attacks. 

Michael Dahinten, Head of Business Development at truckBloc GmbH, commented on the visit: “It was great to visit Heald’s HQ in Hornsea. Taking part in ongoing Matador training is essential to ensure the standard of continuous maintenance and servicing is kept to a high standard. 

“The support we received from Debbie, Rod and the wider Heald team was tremendous. Overall, it was a very successful visit, and we look forward to implementing the recent training.”

Heald owner and Managing Director Debbie Heald MBE added, “It was fantastic to welcome truckBloc to Hornsea! As well as having the pleasure of welcoming our German partners, the Matador training is a crucial requirement for ensuring the standards of our Matadors are kept to a high standard, whether installed in the UK or internationally.”
