FlamePro, a manufacturing specialist of life-saving garments for firefighters, was awarded and has successfully delivered a contract by Farnborough Airport to provide firefighting PPE to the Airports Fire Officers for the next decade.
The competitive tender saw three different providers bid for the work, with FlamePro chosen to provide PPE, along with a total garment care and maintenance package. FlamePro impressed Farnborough Airport with its high-quality products, extensive industry knowledge and dedication to providing support on care, use and maintenance.
Nathan Bricknell, General Manager at FlamePro, said: ‘We were thrilled to have been awarded this contract with Farnborough Airport – as it showcases our capabilities to provide PPE to the aviation industry.
‘We’ve been working with partners over the past few months to develop brand-new fabric technologies and designs, including a 3D woven structure and new moisture barrier membrane, to ensure our PPE is the most advanced on the market.
‘Our brand-new structural fire suit has set a new benchmark across the whole industry. This, teamed with our shorter-than-average lead times stands us in great stead to continue to deliver top-quality products and service on all contracts.’
David Willis, Fire Service Manager at Farnborough Airport added: ‘We were very happy with our choice to work alongside FlamePro on the roll out of PPE to the Fire Officers here at the airport. We found FlamePro pleasant to correspond with, they listened to what we requested and worked with us to achieve a workable solution.
‘The capabilities of being able to deliver the aftercare we need, life-saving PPE and pleasant working partnerships, sold FlamePro as an affordable yet reliable supplier and a company that we could work with now and in the future. The new kit is more comfortable to wear and also more practical than other options on the market. It’s also beneficial for the crew to know that they’re wearing one of the most up-to-date forms of protection.
‘We are confident that the company’s knowledge and commitment to supply will provide a great working partnership.’
