Protecting Plant, Tools & Equipment

The plant hire division of construction group J Coffey is set to use SelectaDNA forensic marking to prevent theft of valuable site equipment.

J Coffey Plant Hire Division (JCP) has a diverse and ever expanding fleet of equipment comprising of over 3,000 itemised pieces of plant covering controlled demolition, nonmechanical plant and heavy plant.

Our DNA marking solution will help them identify 40 items of large plant equipment, 70 vehicles, 5,000 tools and 20,000 formwork moulds, into which concrete is poured.

J Coffey Plant will also be using 2,000 Tesa labels (the most durable label option available) to identify items of equipment.

They have had some issues on building sites where other companies were using similar items, so the TESA labels will allow them to prove ownership when needed.

The company will also be erecting deterrent warning signs at their sites to warn potential thieves that DNA marking is in use.
