Description About the Opportunity:
Looking for a supplier to cover servicing/commissioning only of Fire Extinguishers to 15 of our UK Nationwide sites (Must be BAFE Registered).

We would prefer a company to cover all sites on a Nationwide basis (see website for location of depot sites though we are including an additional 3 sites within the agreement – 1 in Somerset and 2 in Merseyside), but we are willing to cover individual depots on separate contracts with local suppliers if deemed necessary.

Initial contract would be for one year only with no rollover contracts allowed and this would need to cover pricing for servicing and/or commissioning only of the actual extinguishers in place on site. We do not require Fire Risk Assessments, replacement and/or refilling of Extinguisher units or signs as we cover these elsewhere. Nor do we require extended servicing or discharge tests to a unit.

Our sites range from as few as 4 extinguisher units to over 50 for our main manufacturing plant.

Cost to be provided would be price per extinguisher for servicing (inclusive of any parts required) and for commissioning any newly supplied units and any additional site visit minimum visit charges.

We would also require a cost for taking away used extinguishers for recycling although this would not become part of the national contract and would be used on an ad-hoc basis from our Liverpool Head Office site.
