Founded 50 years ago, Bryland Fire Protection provides fire protection, detection and suppression services to businesses in the UK and Europe. With headquarters in Dudley, West Midlands, plus offices in Farnborough, Hampshire and Colne, Lancashire, Bryland Fire Protection designs, installs and maintains fire safety systems for businesses of all sizes, and across a range of sectors.
Following a competitive tender process, Gallagher won the multi-year contract as a result of its in-depth understanding of Bryland Fire Protection’s risk management needs, as it expands its office and client footprint, plus Gallagher’s strong insurer relationships and the strength of its in-house claims team.
Richard Grosvenor, Sales Director, Gallagher, commented: “For fire protection consultants, managing clients’ fire and security risks can carry risks of their own – from property damage, to personal injury during installations. Navigating these risks requires the support of a specialist insurance broker, who can provide firms with tailored advice, to ensure they have appropriate cover in place, so that they can focus on running and growing their business.
“Our expertise across many different sectors, as well as our regional insight, means that we have a good understanding the risks and challenges affecting companies in the fire safety space, and can offer them bespoke insurance and risk solutions, to provide them with the peace of mind they need to focus on running and growing their business.
“We are very pleased to be working with a firm which has built up an excellent reputation over many years for delivering high-quality fire protection and detection solutions, and we look forward to supporting Bryland Fire Protection over the coming years, as it looks to extend its reach, both at home and across Europe.”
Graham Turner, Managing Director, Bryland Fire Protection, said: “Having operated in the fire safety industry for over 50 years, we understand only too well how vital it is for businesses to manage and prepare for unforeseen risks.
“By taking time to understand the risks we face as a business, and designing tailored insurance cover to mitigate these, whilst making savings on our overall insurance costs, Gallagher has instilled a great deal of confidence in us that we have suitable insurance in place for our business today and as we grow.”
