Angloco Ltd has been designing and building special purpose firefighting and rescue vehicles for over 50 years. The majority of their products are specially designed and custom-built for each customer, according to their individual requirements.
Angloco has exported products to over 70 countries worldwide and supports the vehicles throughout their lifetime with a team of global service engineers. Through Heathrow, Angloco can transport its team of engineers to where they are needed anywhere around the world. As these are emergency vehicles, maintenance needs to happen on a precise schedule so that Angloco’s firefighting vehicles are ready to go at a moment’s notice. Having a well-connected and often direct transport link to its customers is not only vital for the business, but for the communities and livelihoods that its equipment protects.
The company supports industry efforts to increase exports and has even seconded a sector specialist to the Department for International Trade.
Alistair Brown, Managing Director of Angloco says; “Angloco are delighted to have been selected as a winner of Heathrow Airport’s Global Britain Business Champions award. We are active globally, and this recognition for our highly skilled work force and quality product is hugely appreciated following a challenging time for British Manufacturing.
Heathrow Airport offers a gateway not only to airfreight urgent spare parts but for our teams to visit customers to provide essential maintenance and training. This support of our fire fighting vehicles and equipment means that these fire and rescue services can continue to save lives around the world”.
