NJL Custodial Strikes Again

Check out some of our photos from our (Pre) Christmas Party in Newcastle. Now that the winners have finished gloating it’s safe to say well done to everyone, however, only the winners took home a trophy, as you will see!  The action packed evening started with bowling then moved to pool & ping pong with light hearted competition throughout but more importantly with ego’s and bragging rights on the line.

Everyone got stuck into all the activities which ran late into the night.   Have a look at our photos to see the NJL Team in action and collecting their trophies!

NJL Custodial Exports Prison Furniture to Africa

NJL Custodial recently dispatched a selection of our prison furniture products for installation in Somaliland, Africa.  The enquiry was generated through our website and we have worked hard alongside Adam Smith International to ensure that the products manufactured were of high quality and were ready for dispatch from our factory in Newcastle upon Tyne on programme.

Once the products had been picked the logistics of the dispatch and delivery were organised between NJL Custodial and Adam Smith International.  This proved challenging but the goods were successfully dispatched from Newcastle and are now en route to Somaliland.

Adam Smith International was very happy with the service provided by NJL Custodial and Kate from Adam Smith wanted to thank our team for going ‘above and beyond expectations’ in assisting in the process of dispatch.

We look forward to more export opportunities in the near future.
