Chubb Fire, the UK’s leading fire specialist, has successfully won a major new contract to service more than 1,450 fire extinguishers at the headquarters of Bentley Motors in Crewe, Cheshire.

Bentley Motors has been building luxury cars since 1946 and quality is a key driver throughout its business, and this includes the appointment of third-party suppliers.

Commenting on Chubb’s work, Peter Spooner, Security Sub Officer for Training at Bentley Motors explained: “This is the third year running that Chubb Fire has been appointed because they consistently deliver the level of service excellence and quality that a company like ours expects." He added: "I am FETA (Fire Extinguisher Trades Association) qualified, and they know that any work undertaken by Chubb will be checked by me afterwards. Chubb has always performed to my expectation as one of the leaders in fire safety.”

Chris Mahood, Key Account Executive at Chubb adds: “We are delighted to be associated with such a high-class and world-renowned company as Bentley Motors. Bentley has a proud record in the region, nationally and indeed internationally, and we are pleased to be playing a part in keeping their staff and their facility safe from harm.”

A mixture of Chubb and other branded extinguishers, some foam, water and CO2, located throughout the offices, factory and production line were serviced.

During an annual service, extinguishers should be checked for: external signs of corrision; dents; spills gauges or other defects. The extinguisher should also be weighed and have the pressure checked to ensure there is the correct amount of propellant and gas.
