The £50,000 contract from Mersey travel has been secured by Jackson Fire and Security’s Wirral franchisee Lee Fowler.
The firm won the contract against strong competition, and is the latest in a string of new clients to be signed up by the growing franchise.
Franchisee Lee Fowler revealed this latest tender success is prompting the company to open a second Merseyside franchise in Liverpool city centre in September.
Jackson Fire and Security will maintain suppression and detection systems within the Mersey Tunnel estate, which includes ventilation stations, various pump rooms, a control centre, office accommodation, and maintenance workshops.
The firm is also on call to attend the site if the systems are activated during an incident.
Lee Fowler said: “I am pleased with the support I received from head office in order to win this prestigious contract with a large and well-known local firm. The franchisor’ in-house expertise makes the whole bidding and tendering process a lot easier.
“We are confident the PR we are carrying out to promote this contract award will lead to further contracts for both the Wirral and Liverpool franchises in the coming months.
“Jackson Fire and Security doesn’t stand still. It is innovative and, because it opens local offices and appoints local people, we can respond very quickly. Customers also aren’t paying for an engineer from another part of the country to drive to their premises to carry out maintenance. We can price competitively and I’m looking forward to winning more work.
“Jackson’s has doubled the size of its network in the last three months. With franchises established in four new locations in the past three months, the network now services the needs of public and private sector organisations across the country through eight branches, with plans to open 90 branches throughout the UK.”
Merseytravel Technical Services manager, Gerry Nolan, said: “We are looking forward to a mutually supportive working relationship that I am confident will give Merseytravel value for money during the term of this new contract.”
Formed in 1991, the company has built a reputation for quality, reliability and service, and is an NSI and Siemens gold accredited partner for fire systems.
