Jackloc announce shortlisted product in national Mother & Baby Awards

Leicestershire company and East Midlands Chamber of Commerce member, Jackloc, are thrilled to share that their window restrictor has been shortlisted in the national Mother & Baby Awards for Best Safety Product.

At the start of this year, Eric Collins came on board as Managing Director with a background in business transformation. Over the past few months he’s been working to develop relationships within the key commercial sectors of Care, Hotels and Social Housing, whilst also reaching out to parents to raise awareness of window safety at home.  

The Jackloc window restrictor was the first on the market in 2003. It was invented by Derek Horne, who was spurred into action to help reduce the risk of falls, after seeing a child playing near an open window in a hotel. He created the Jackloc, named after his grandson Jack. The product was then  marketed by his daughters who set up Jackloc in Leicestershire.

Jackloc has always promoted quality as the message at the core of the business. The products are manufactured in the UK and were awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2017. Being shortlisted in the awards provides a timely endorsement for the company, as the company is embarking on a rapid marketing plan to grow awareness. The new plan includes creating a range of new assets, attending a range of exhibitions, including the Baby Show in London this month and launching a new website by the end of the year.

Eric Collins, Managing Director of Jackloc said:

“We’re over the moon that we’ve been shortlisted for Best Safety Product in the upcoming awards.  As parents ourselves, all of us at Jackloc are very seasoned to the exploring nature of children, and know how quickly accidents can happen. We are actively committed to promoting the message about window safety as far and wide as possible, and are always looking for new relationships to build on.”

The awards take place in November in London.
