A BATLEY firm supplying fire fighting equipment is blazing ahead with orders extending to December next year.
Angloco Ltd, the UK’s longest-established builder of fire fighting vehicles, has won record orders from customers across the world.
The most recent deal – worth £2.25m – is to provide specialist refinery fire fighting and rescue vehicles for Qatar Petroleum. Angloco already has two vehicles in service with the customer and three more in the order book.
In the UK, Angloco is to deliver 12 aerial ladder platforms to local authority fire and rescue services over the next 18 months – including five units for Essex Fire and Rescue Service in a deal valued at just over £2.5m.
Angloco is also building vehicles for other UK customers, including West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Ministry of Defence.
The firm, which has 67 employees, is also supplying a new rescue and fire fighting vehicle to Leeds-Bradford Airport, with other appliances to be delivered to Jersey and Ireland.
