“Made in Britain” has been an important part of Fortress’s business strategy and success, and the Company is keen to support the local community. “The Food Bank is a great cause, it’s very visual and you know it will it provide immediate and direct benefits to those in need” said Sarah. “I am so pleased that everyone has contributed willingly to this, and amazed we collected so much in such a short time. I am sure it will continue”.

Since the beginning of 2012 The Banbury foodbank has been providing food to families in crisis in the Banbury community. Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. Trussell Trust foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK.

Fortress Technology (Europe) Ltd began manufacturing at their Banbury site in 2011, going from 12 to now almost 30 employees and supplying over 1500 UK built Phantom and Stealth metal detectors both in the UK and overseas, for use in a variety of industrial applications.
