SPIE UK has won an eleven-month contract with Unipres, a manufacturer of pressed parts for automobiles to supply, install and commission additional Fire Alarm detection and graphics as part of phase 5 extension works at Unipres’ manufacturing plant in Sunderland.
As part of the contract, SPIE will be installing a new fire detection and alarm control panel in the new plant room of the building, as well as diverting some of the existing loops to the new control panel.
SPIE has been working with Unipres since 2015, originally undertaking smaller works for a subcontractor which has grown into a relationship where the company now works directly for Unipres as one of its preferred suppliers.
During the original installation in 2018, SPIE installed an Advanced Fire Alarm panel, which was one of the first of its kind, with a built in fully operational graphics LED screen.
Lewis Reid, Operations Manager, at SPIE UK, said: “We are thrilled that the technology we have integrated into the Unipres facility has proved such a success. By combining smart technology with our engineering expertise, we can deliver an innovative solution that benefits the end user – and, in this case, keeping Unipres employees safe. Our excellent relationship with Unipres is testament to the team’s hard work and technical proficiency and we are delighted that we can continue working together for the foreseeable future.”
