Evacusafe US, the US distribution partner of Evacusafe UK, ltd., a leading evacuation equipment manufacturers and training providers, is proud to announce a contract to provide evacuation chairs and professional evacuation chair training to US Customs and Border Protection Agency in Washington DC.
The United States Customs and Border Protection Agency recognized a need to provide safe, effective evacuation chairs and, after evaluating several different manufacturers, decided to move forward with the Evacusafe Excel Chair. This model happens to be Evacusafe’s top selling product around the world. The chairs were acquired via Janz Corporation, of Reynoldsburg, OH: a service-disabled Veteran-owned business.
After purchasing their evacuation equipment, the United States Customs and Border Protection Agency hired Evacusafe to conduct ‘Train the Trainer’ training. This will allow the Agency team to continuously train new employees themselves, without ongoing costs.
Evacusafe’s US Operations Director, Scott Purdy, who resides in Detroit Michigan, said “It’s very important to have staff members in place who have the skills to properly use these evacuation chairs. This ensures the safety of any evacuees through professional training that focuses on best practice guidelines. On behalf of Evacusafe, I provided key trainer training courses to five people from five different departments of the agency. The training courses went extremely well. Everyone was very engaged and recognized the importance of these type of evacuation devices to provide for the safe exit of vulnerable persons”.
Director of Evacusafe UK Ltd., Mr Tony Gill, said “Operations in the USA have strengthened since we formed a partnership with our distributor for North America. Sales of our equipment have increased year on year and have now cemented our position of a nationwide supplier into the US market, thanks to the enormous efforts of our US Operations Director, Scott Purdy.
Securing such a high-profile contract simply further highlights the great success our USA business partner is achieving”.
