Venari partners with historic helmet maker to serve firefighting sector

Venari Group, the Brighouse-based specialist vehicle builder, has partnered with safety helmet manufacturer, Schuberth, to serve the firefighting sector.

The partnership announcement comes as Venari activates its new firefighting equipment sales, service, and customer support division, to drive product quality and aftercare into the challenging firefighting sector.

Schuberth is a 90-year old, manufacturer of safety helmets for motorcyclists and motorsport, including Formula One.

The firm also specialises in Military and Law Enforcement helmets. Having produced EN 443-certified firefighting helmets for over 50 years, the company has selected recently launched Venari Group as its UK and Ireland distributor.

“Pre-Venari, the team and I have supplied firefighting equipment to fire brigades since 2008, including over 80% of the current UK firefighter helmets. So, the partnership with Schuberth was a very natural one,” said Venari Group CEO, Oliver North.

“The activation of our firefighting equipment department further solidifies our intention of being a high performing supplier to the UK fire and rescue market whilst continuing to build our emergency vehicle range to the highest quality possible.”

He added: “Our partnership will concentrate on Schuberth’s truly incredible F300 helmet. The UK fire and rescue service are equipped to a very high standard in terms of structural firefighting PPE, but with more frequent wildland firefighting, RTC’s and water rescues, the F300 provides the ultimate flexibility as a rescue and wildland helmet.

Thomas Heinlein, head of BU Industrial Safety and Firefighting at Schuberth, said: “For us, Venari is the most exciting company in the British emergency services supplier market, so we are naturally delighted to have agreed on this truly exciting partnership with them.

“Our global reputation for high quality means we can only partner with highly efficient and passionate distributors in their specialist fields. Venari’s team have proven their efficiency and passion over countless years in the UK fire market and we’re excited to work with them in the UK firefighting and ambulance market with our F300.”
