Bank package hailed

by Mark Rowe

Wireless CCTV Ltd (WCCTV) report a £1.1m funding package from HSBC UK. The Rochdale firm offers redeployable CCTV, site security, body-worn cameras and time lapse video services. It’ll use the money to buy more CCTV mobile towers (as used by building, motorway and railway firms) and body-worn cameras.

The company points to retail and emergency services use of its body-worn video. The firm expected to create ten full-time jobs and apprenticeships and boost turnover. James Thornhill, Finance Director at WCCTV, said: “We needed to reinforce our product offering to continue driving sales and the financial support we have received from HSBC has enabled us to do this. We have noticed a rise in the number of companies and organisations wanting to use our intelligent surveillance devices in a remote capacity so we needed to ensure the business’ stock supplies could meet this demand.” Jonathan Rutter, Corporate Relationship Director at HSBC UK, added: “The breadth and scope of WCCTV’s business is really quite staggering. From building and infrastructure construction companies to small, independent retailers and nationwide public service departments, WCCTV has a range of products and services that have the potential to reach all corners of a business. I hope HSBC’s support gives WCCTV the impetus to harness this diversity and continue its growth and expansion across the country.”


The company launched in 2001 and has offices in Hemel Hempstead and Dallas, Texas, with a total of 64 UK staff. Its systems transmit live and recorded images over wireless networks including 3G and 4G, satellite, WiFi and broadband networks. The company provides covert, overt and bespoke systems on a sale or rental basis. Visit
