HIRE In many instances hiring equipment in place of purchasing is more cost and time efficient for time limited projects. With all of the WIN TECH range being available for hire as well as a huge variety of equipment provided by other brands we are certain we can reach the best solution for all your hire needs. Equipment can be hired for both long and short term periods and is a great method for reducing equipment down time on projects. For example when equipment is due for service, replacement kit can be sent in advance so that servicing doesn’t disrupt operations. WFE Safety provide a single point of access for a huge range or specialist equipment companies allowing the option to cross hire at reasonable prices whilst also saving valuable time in sourcing equipment.

CONSIGNMENT STOCK For large projects WFE Safety are able to provide certain items of stock to be retained by our customers. All stock that is required is individually heat sealed and vacuum packed before being sent to site. This packaging allows the stock to be stored in-situ for an increased period of time before servicing of equipment is required. Upon opening the packaging the servicing date will commence as normal. This is an effective way of equipment reducing down time during projects as items of equipment are kept on site and there is no need to process orders or wait for delivery. At the end of the project (or in-situ date) all unused stock may be returned to WFE Safety or purchased by the customer. Items of equipment will only be invoiced for upon opening its protective packaging.

SERVICING WFE Safety is able to provide service and re-certification for a huge range of personal protective equipment. We are focused on providing a time and material efficient turn-around, with all our service and inspections being completed in-house at our North Wales base. Our fully qualified equipment inspectors can provide servicing and recertification for a wide range of Life Jackets and Personal Protective Equipment.
