The FM Conway Story

FM Conway specialises in delivering infrastructure services to support, develop and maintain the UK’s vital transport networks, built environments and open spaces. Committed to providing a safe working environment, FM Conway believes in treating its people, customers and the communities it serves with respect and integrity.

The Challenge

With teams working on technically demanding projects, often in heavy-traffic areas, the safety of its workforce is FM Conway’s number one priority. Government regulations require site teams wear Class 3 Hi-Vis certified garments. But the company wanted to go one step further – outfitting its workers in fire-retardant clothing that would protect against the risk of burn injuries resulting from exposure to tarmac at high temperatures.

The Solution

Working closely with FM Conway, HeathBrook developed a bespoke garment for the entire workforce to wear on a daily basis.Created using specially selected flame-proof fabrics that deliver optimal protection against sparks, the new design incorporates FM Conway’s corporate logos and signature Bottle Green colour, together with all mandated high-vis requirements. Additional features were incorporated to help keep wearers cool in the summer months or when working in close proximity to heat.

The Result

Today, FM Conway relies on HeathBrook’s expert knowledge of generic sizing profiles and forecasting models to ensure stock levels of its bespoke garment are always maintained. With bulk production lead times of up to four months or more, careful forward planning is essential to ensure FM Conway always has a supply of replacement protective clothing in stock. So that projects always run to time, without compromising the safety of employees. HeathBrook’s effective stock control and planning service now ensures every employee has access to these essential PPE garments, the moment these are needed.
