BACKGROUND & HISTORY
Hawkes Fire were founded in 1974 and began business by specialising in the service & maintenance of Fire Applicances. Things never stay still and opportunities arose in all aspects of fire so that Hawkes Fire is seen today as a one stop shop for all mobile and fixed mechanical fire applications.
Being based at the heart of one of Europe’s largest chemical complexes meant that flammable liquid fire-fighting became a specialism. It would be no exaggeration to say that a generation of North East industrial Fire Officers have had dealings with Hawkes Fire and speak highly of the resources that we provide.
The company has grown with a management team covering Engineering, Sales and Service together with a fully equipped workshop/fabrication facility and off site engineering team to provide 365 24/7 services for our many UK customers.
