When it comes to safety, and especially fire safety there is no such thing as compromise. Fidelity Fire Solutions is proud to announce another South African first – after partnering with Eaton – to source, service and install fire alarm and fire suppression solutions across sub-Saharan Africa.
This is a first for a South African fire solutions company to partner with an internationally recognised giant in the industry. Wahl Bartmann, CEO Fidelity Services Group, said: “For a company like ours to partner with an international industry leader highlights the strength of our business.”
Fidelity Services Group has grown the fire solutions arm and strategically worked to strengthen their product offerings, expertise and scale of the business to fully service and install large scale fire and suppression solutions which paved the way for a partnership of this type.
Dean Gopal, Product Manager – Life Safety Division at Eaton, said: “We recognised early on in our discussions with Fidelity the clear benefits of partnering with them to expand on our joint operations in Africa.”
The partnership is envisaged to create a new paradigm in the fire solutions industry to benefit potential customers through enhancing the available solutions each company can offer to their existing and future customers on the continent.
“We are proud to be partnering with Eaton and look forward to a long and rewarding future for our customers,” concluded Bartmann.
