Bournemouth-based Drewlec, the electrical services arm of The Drewitt Group, has worked alongside Twickenham Plating Group Ltd. for more than 20 years providing fire safety services and has recently introduced the latest state-of-the-art fire system to ensure health and safety compliance and Fire Risk Assessment.
Following the installation of its fire system in 1996, it came to the end of its economic life. The team discussed requirements with the client to finalise a plan for a replacement system.
The plating process creates a challenging environment, which meant that the new fire alarm system had to be designed to take this into consideration. Working closely with the client, a detailed programme of works was agreed and the new system was installed over a two week period, avoiding the busiest production periods.
Richard Drewitt, managing director of The Drewitt Group, commented: “The longstanding partnership with Twickenham Plating Group has been fantastic for us all at The Drewitt Group, we’ve worked closely alongside them in order to provide ongoing advice and guidance as to the systems that they require.”
Penny Bridge, health and safety manager of Twickenham Plating Group Ltd., added: “We have many years of excellent customer service provided by Richard and his team. They have provided excellent guidance and support on the requirements to meet our fire safety responsibilities.”
The Drewitt Group also services and maintains the emergency lighting and fire extinguishers at the establishment, along with providing a comprehensive package of works and long term advice.
