100% of our Defender™ Spike range is designed and produced entirely in the UK, specifically on Dartmoor in Devon. We have never once considered manufacturing our Defender Pigeon Spikes abroad. The main reason is accessibility. We have complete control over the design and production as it is here in house. We can watch each individual spike being made and assembled before we pack it up and send it out to the customer.
The components used for our Defender™ Bird Control range are also sourced locally from several companies in a small town on the center of Dartmoor. Devon has a thriving industrial network made up of real artisan talents including the plastic molding companies we use. Jones and Son are lucky enough to work directly with them so any design decisions concerning the tooling can be implemented immediately. The wire used in our Stainless Steel Bird Spikes is formed using a rescued, reconditioned 2nd World War Heenan Froude machine. It’s nice to think that in World War II it made components for anti-aircraft guns protecting our cities and now in the 21st Century it’s making Defender™ Pigeon Spikes and Bird Spikes, protecting the very same buildings.
