Case Study

Travis Perkins
25,000 extinguishers across 1,600 sites

Travis Perkins is the UK’s largest builder’s merchants with an enviable reputation developed over 200 years in the building and construction industry. The nature of our business requires a fire safety partner to operate with confidence and professionalism across a variety of sites. We have to manage a number of dangerous and demanding environments, from distribution centres to retail stores where fire poses a great risk.

When we put the contract out for tender, Firemark initially impressed us with their enthusiasm and willingness to understand our needs in detail. With forty years’ experience working with fire extinguishers, we were confident of their ability to deliver consistently across our large estate.

Since taking the contract, Firemark have worked with professionalism, transparency and honesty. In a business of this size, we need suppliers to act responsively and provide added value. Firemark met these requirements when they introduced a web portal to manage our extinguisher records, which represented a new standard in reporting efficiency.
