Marine Fire Safety: specialists in firefighting and lifesaving equipment for the marine industry, has secured a supply agreement with one of the UK’s leading marine and logistics experts; Williams Shipping.
Marine Fire Safety will be providing a full range of fire and safety equipment and service support for 16 of the vessels within the Williams Shipping fleet, as part of their recently launched Workboat 1.2.3 service package. This includes the supply of liferafts, man overboard equipment, pyrotechnics, portable fire extinguishers and the service of their existing fixed Stat-X and CO2 fire systems.
Philip Williams, Managing Director of Williams Shipping, comments “Staying on top of equipment service intervals and expiry dates, for all the fire and safety equipment onboard our vessels is time consuming business. Working with Marine Fire Safety and signing up to a fire and safety management scheme like Workboat 1.2.3, will alleviate a lot of that burden and give us more time to focus on other areas of the business. We are very much looking forward to seeing how the partnership develops.”
Chris Waterman, Technical Sales Manager (Safety) at Marine Fire Safety, comments “As an independent family run company, having one of the UK’s longest established shipping companies sign up to our Workboat 1.2.3 service package is a real privilege. Workboat 1.2.3 blends all areas of our firefighting and lifesaving equipment supply and service business together, to create a free and efficient management system, which not only helps to streamline operations but provides a cost-effective solution.”
He continues, “The Seawork International Show has always been an important show for us, and not only has it provided us with the opportunity to debut this new service to our existing and future customers, but it has given us the platform to celebrate new business partnerships.”
Covering all aspects of a vessel’s lifesaving equipment; the Workboat 1.2.3 service package offers a three-year agreement, including a free management service. It is designed to offer customers a cost-efficient ‘one-stop-shop’ approach for all their marine fire and safety sales, service and hire requirements.
