This #madeinsandwell Monday star aims to make the UK a safer place

Our #madeinsandwell Monday star this week is Oldbury-based firm Fire Equipment Maintenance (FEM) Limited.

FEM fire extinguishers_smallThe company maintains fire equipment, including fire alarms, fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, dry risers, fire hydrants, sprinkler systems and fire doors. All work undertaken is completed strictly in accordance with the relevant British Standards codes of practice.

Established in 2012, the family-run business values the 40 years of industry experience offered by its managing director, Anthony Beale, who previously ran Mayfair Fire Protection.

The majority of the company’s staff have been working with Anthony for over 20 years. With two sons, Adam and Jack, ready to take over when the time comes, FEM’s future is secure.

Business Development officer Luke Leavy said: “From our base in Sandwell we find it easy to provide and service fire equipment for businesses all over the country. This location, with excellent access to the motorway network, will be key to helping FEM continue to grow.

“As for our future plans? These include a continued high-quality service and fair pricing to encourage growth, and a mission to make businesses all over the UK safer by working with them to properly maintain their fire prevention equipment”.
