Kavanagh Engineering is continuing to expand operations as Ireland’s sole distributors of Gatekeeper and Cartronic shopping trolley systems.

Both are trolley retention and purchase anti-theft systems. They can stop a shopping trolley from leaving the store if it has not passed a designated check-out point for the person to pay for the goods. They can also stop a trolley from leaving the car park, preventing them being taken away.

We have developed a particularly good relationship with Lidl, who have now installed our systems in a large number of their stores across the country.

We have installed Purchek anti-theft systems in 12 Lidl stores last year, as they began to trial the system. We’ve installed another at Ballyowen in Dublin this year, while we’ve also installed car park retention systems at six Lidl stores across Ireland:

  • Churchfield, Cork
  • Macroom, Cork
  • Tallaght, Dublin
  • Cabra, Dublin
  • Portmarnock, Dublin
  • Drogheda, Louth
  • Wilton, Cork

The system is proving a success at all locations, and we look forward to further installations too.

If you too would like to benefit from our shopping trolley systems or would like more information on them, just contact us at any time.
