Hammond Drysuits are celebrating a milestone in its commercial service division, after completing the service and certification of its 1000th commercial drysuit. This achievement comes shortly after Hammond Drysuits welcomed on board a number of new clients who have chosen Hammond Drysuits to supply high quality commercial drysuits to its teams, including Viking Life Saving Equipment Ltd, Wind Farm Equipment Ltd, Certex and MHI Vestas Offshore.
Chris Hammond, Managing Director, says "With the increase in adverse weather predicted for this winter putting extra strain on the UK's search & rescue teams in addition to the rapid expansion of our offshore renewables industry in recent years, demand for high quality commercial drysuits has risen sharply."
"Along with that, commercial, governmental and charitable organisations have a responsibility to their workers to ensure protective equipment is in the best working order. That means regular inspection and servicing. Here at Hammond Drysuits we are very happy to work with individual organisations to help them achieve that."
Every drysuit received undergoes a Full Wet Pressure Test to identify any areas in need of attention, in particular seams, zips and seals. A comprehensive visual check is then completed by the highly skilled service team.
Any repair work deemed necessary is undertaken at Hammond Drysuits' dedicated workshop facility at Dartford, Kent, before being couriered directly back to the customer. A full certificate is issued on completion of the service, for use with insurance.
An expedited service is available for urgent repairs.
