MULTI-MILLION POUND TEES CONTRACTS FOR CFB RISK MANAGEMENT

CFB Risk Management has announced the signing of multi-million pound contracts involving three of the world’s largest chemical, plastics and bulk storage companies with plants on Teesside.

The contracts will provide long-term Industrial Fire and Rescue services to INEOS Nitriles (UK) Limited, Navigator Terminals and Huntsman Tioxide at their neighbouring sites on Seal Sands. Under a Shared Service Agreement, CFB Risk Management will give the companies round-the-clock Asset Protection 24/7 whilst delivering added value and significant financial savings.

For CFB Risk Management the contract will safeguard 50 permanent jobs as well as creating new posts and boosting the company’s apprenticeship scheme with more opportunities for the young unemployed on Teesside. It will also bring further investment in equipment and resources to enhance the asset protection services on Teesside.

CFB Risk Management, set up in 2011, led the way as the first of its kind to be set up by a UK fire authority. It now has one of the largest workforces in the UK with the skills and competence to work in high hazard conditions.

Ian Hayton, CFB Risk Management’s Managing Director, said:

“We know that safety is an absolute top priority for these three global companies so we are delighted at the confidence they are showing in us. These are very significant contracts for us and a great opportunity. We believe that this shared model enables us to deliver the highest quality of service in the most cost-effective way bringing benefits to everyone.”

“The skills of our team are a major reason for our success and our vision of being internationally recognised for our specialist expertise and experience is being realised,” he added.

Gary Cawley, Technical Director, said:

“We have just completed an initial three-year contract with INEOS Nitriles (UK) Limited and are very pleased that it has been renewed with the addition of Navigator Terminals and Huntsman. It has taken more than 18 months of hard work and commitment to put this together and by passing on savings to our customers, it is helping to support businesses and employment on Teesside as well as boosting our own workforce.”

“Bringing together this cluster of businesses also brings benefits in terms of speed of response, pooled resources and expertise and allows us to build our capacity and capability,” he added.

The new contract comes on the back of recent growth for CFB Risk Management. It provides a range of risk management services from risk assessment and auditing, emergency planning and fire engineering to emergency response and training and exercising. Customers include blue-chip companies in high-hazard sectors such as oil and gas, power, petrochemical and nuclear that need to protect their people, plant, process and productivity.

Contracts in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, where an office has just been established in Abu Dhabi, are cementing CFB Risk Management’s position as a multi-million pound turnover global business with the profits returned into projects that improve safety for the Teesside community.
