Star Role at
Pinewood
Studios for
Red Rhino
Red
Rhino
recently
supplied a Red Rhino
5000 series crusher to
Pinewood Studios via MCM
Film Services for use in
assembly and demolishing
stage sets for the Pinewood
Film studios.
An example of this is the crusher that was being recently used to create the banked film
sets on the latest James Bond film where the Red Rhino was rubbing shoulders with the rich
and famous let alone James Bond himself
James Bond blows up the film sets and after processing, the studio will reuse the rubble
to make something else. With global emphasis on recycling, re-using the building rubble
that Daniel Craig blows up during filming makes sound economic sense
Previously the hardcore would have been brought in at cost and used to form basic
structures for new film sets. By using a Red Rhino Crusher Pinewood Film Studios have
saved thousands of pounds on bough- in aggregate and back fill to create the perfect set.

devices by Essex-based Enigma Telematics.
Having been alerted to thefts experienced by two of its customers, Enigma used its
Skyline tracking system to establish that some stolen machinery had passed through the
Port of Felixstowe in Suffolk.
The Port handles more than 3.4 million containers each year. Despite this, the loca-
tion data provided by Enigma was used to pinpoint the location of some of the stolen
machinery.
Although the equipment had now left Felixstowe, the data provided by Enigma was so
accurate that Port of Felixstowe Police was able to establish the destination of the three
containers housing the stolen equipment. One was bound for Saudi Arabia and the
other two were destined for Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania, East Africa. The
containers were intercepted and returned.
When the containers were opened back in the UK, they were found to contain more
stolen equipment than was first thought. The first container received back at Felixstowe
was found to hold six generators, valued at around £125,000. The second contained
three excavators, two generators and two dumper trucks, with a combined value estimated
at between £150,000 and £175,000.
