TAG Farnborough Airport

PVL were approached by TAG Farnborough Airport in Hampshire through our well established relationship with Central Training Group who had an enquiry to increase the visibility of the airport fire services foam tender units. The Airport Fire Services vehicles had to be made more visible whilst working on the airport but also had to be easily identified as a fire vehicle when on the public highways. As one of the most well-known airports in the world, in part due to their well-established international air show, it was essential that the fire vehicles look the part as well as perform to a very high standard.

PVL met with TAG Farnborough Airport Fire Service and Central Training Group and a design concept was quickly agreed with particular focus on ensuring that there would be no interference to the operational demands of the units whilst the fitting was being completed.

Within a week a site visit had been completed by PVL’s in-house design team to produce a bespoke template for each unit and a follow up visit had also been completed. The designs were then signed off by the Airport Fire Service, the fitting date was agreed and the production of the kits began.

The whole process was overseen by one of PVL’s National Account Managers and he was on site for the first day of the fitting to oversee the initial stages of the fitting. Upon completion he then returned to the airport to ensure that the fitting had been completed to the airports satisfaction.

Ian Fisher, Fire and Security Manager for TAG Farnborough Airport Ltd said “We are absolutely delighted with the entire process of work from design to completion. The service has been excellently delivered and the enhancement of our emergency vehicle fleet has been astounding. There was zero disruption to the busy operational environment at the Fire Station and the fitter’s team worked with complete flexibility to ensure this was always the case. We would have no hesitation in recommending PVL UK and very much look forward to working with their team on future products.”
