Founder of Safety Devices Passed Away

Just got this email from SD:

The founder of Safety Devices, Brian Wilkinson 77, died last week. Brian had started the Company in September 1972 at Cherry Hinton, Cambridge, on return from his native New Zealand. Under his stewardship, the Company became synonymous with roll cages, designing for all major Works teams in the UK, subsequently for Land Rover and the British and New Zealand Armies. In summer 2013 Brian led the Company’s celebrations of 40 years at Kings College Cambridge and later at the Goodwood festival of speed. “Brian stayed in contact with the team at Safety Devices and was justly proud of the business he had created. He will be missed by all.” Pursuing his passion for engineering, in his later years Brian became an expert in building lightweight E-Type Jaguars through his Company, Zealia Engineering.
