Evacusafe’s official distributor for the USA, based in Detroit Michigan, recently undertook a contract to provide evacuation chairs and professional evacuation chair training to the US Customs and Border Patrol in Washington DC.
The United States Customs and Border Protection Agency recognised they had a need to train their members of staff in how to safely use evacuation chairs and, after evaluating several different manufacturers, decided to go 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 carry out ‘Train the Trainer’ training.
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”.
Scott Purdy, Evacusafe’s US Operations Director, said “Evacusafe provided training to 5 people from 5 different departments of the agency. The training went exceptionally well. Everyone was very engaged and recognized the importance of these type of evacuation devices in the safe exit of vulnerable persons”.
