Sentric Safety Group Acquires Zonegreen

Home » News

Sentric Safety Group announces today it has acquired Zonegreen.

Headquartered in Sheffield, United Kingdom, Zonegreen develops technologies, software and services that make working in rail depots safer and more efficient. Controlled remotely, these technologies protect lives by ensuring vehicles don’t move unless it is safe to do so. Zonegreen’s products are used by rail customers across the UK, Ireland and Australia.


“Sentric has a proven track record in the rail safety space in France. The acquisition of Zonegreen will enable us to offer a complete range of connected solutions to keep rail maintenance workers safe,” said Aurelie Paul, General Manager, Sentric. “Our companies’ technologies are solving real problems every day as new ways of travelling continue to evolve. Sentric’s investment not only accelerates its ambition for international growth, it also gives the company long-term support to create the safest environment for employees when working in rail depots.”


As a highly sustainable mode of transport, rail makes a notable contribution to reducing carbon emissions and achieving climate objectives. With its growth, there is a growing demand for innovative technologies which support the safety, reliability and efficiency of rail networks and their workers.


  •  Depot Personnel Protection System (DPPSTM): Allows the safe and efficient movement of vehicles in and around rail maintenance depots. The innovative technology safeguards workers by using approved powered derailers, linked to road end panels. Staff create safe zones in which to work in using RFID tags and access permission for trains will then only be given if the road is clear.


  • Depot Manager: SCADA software provides a real time graphical overview of the status of the DPPSTM, and records all safety operations, providing full traceability.


  • Points Converter: allows the automation and remote operation of any traditional manual points/switches and rail road crossings.


Joining Sentric will give us new opportunities to develop our technology offerings and expand our international reach, to protect even more rail workers, and to further increase safety, productivity and reliability for rail network operators,” says Gemma Houghton, Head of Sales, Zonegreen.

Warehouse & logistics white paper

Home » News


STI has 126 years of experience in industrial safety across a wide range of sectors such as food manufacturing, waste & recycling, and warehousing. Recently, we have made use of this expertise and knowledge to produce a white paper on the changing landscape of warehouse safety in France and Europe.

More specifically, the white paper below touches upon the changes in the warehouse industry and their effect on safety, as well as the benefits of safety equipment. It also illustrates how adopting best safety practices could not only minimize risks (such as accidental drive-aways at loading docks) but also deliver a return on investment by eliminating downtime and the costs resulting from the loss of assets and staff.

The changing landscape of warehouse safety

Warehousing is an enormous industry that is an essential part of the modern world and is constantly adapting to new demands. Supply chains are becoming more complex and warehouses are becoming distribution centres where goods are finished, picked and packed rather than old-fashioned storage areas.

In France, this sector employs more than 670,000 people while growing between 2 and 3% every year. It makes France the 6th largest e-com­merce economy in the world, and 2nd in Europe after Germany.

There have been some very significant changes to the industry in the past few years, which have forced it to change the way it thinks about safety. A number of factors have caused these changes, not least the impact of technological developments on consumer behaviours and operations within the warehouse.
