The South Wales based access equipment supplier TB Davies celebrates a successful end to the Formula 1 racing season by adding McLaren to its portfolio of teams supplied.
The group has supplied a diverse range of equipment to the teams over the last few years both as direct consultants and through their resale network. As we prepare for the storming grand prix finale in Abu Dhabi, TB Davies is busy sending products to the Lord Foster designed McLaren teams HQ in Woking.
The group has a long-standing relationship with Formula 1 having supplied nearly half of the teams in recent years. These now include Renault F1, Williams and the Cosworth powered Red Bull racing teams.
TB Davies Senior Sales Consultant Chris Chivell explained, “We have been invited to provide such a diverse range of ladders and related access product it is incredible. These have included anything from a need to use ladders around the Red Bull wind tunnel through to getting Williams access to the actual cars and trailers trackside.”
Communications Director James Gray added, “As an F1 enthusiast I’ve still to meet heroes like Button and Massa but I keep trying. It is an exciting and different type of customer to be involved with and highlights that we are trusted to supply top quality product and advice to these guys.”
The TB Davies group has an enviable pedigree in supplying hi-tech industries that have contracts running with the Ministry of Defence and retains a strong presence in construction, working with the likes of Balfour Beatty.
James Gray continued, “Quality and service remain our key markers of success and what these teams along with customers big and small rely on, is our ability to get them working safely at height the very next day. Whether the end customer is a builder, or an engineer working on a Mercedes engine he knows that he can trust TB Davies to help him get back to work safely without wasting valuable time.”
