Matrix Security have recently been chosen to provide guarding operations for a new state-of-the-art infant formula production plant in Pokeno, south of Auckland. Owned by Yashili New Zealand Dairy Company, the NZD$220 million plant took over 3 years to build and at full capacity will produce a whopping 52,000 tonnes of milk powder per annum. “The production plant will operate under strict food safety quality controls and have robust security measures in place to protect the integrity of our products”, says Sun Yiping, the president of Yashili International Holdings. Matrix Security plays a big role in helping Yashili meet their security measures. With guarding operations provided by Matrix Security, the site is also fully fenced with electronic gates, comprehensive video surveillance and access control to all key areas of production. The plant was officially opened in a ceremony in late 2015, attended by Prime Minister John Key, Chinese dignitaries and representatives of local iwi and the community.
