FlameStop is very proud to announce over 3,000 Water and Mechanical products have now been added into our range. We are now your one-stop-shop for fire companies doing new installations or providing maintenance on sprinkler, hydrant and hose reel systems. At present, the Water and Mechanical product range are currently available in our Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle and Canberra warehouses. Our other remaining distribution warehouses will also have these products readily available in the coming months. To view our entire range of Water & Mechanical products please visit our website.
Ben is the General Manager of FlameStop Australia. He first started his career with the company over 17 years ago in internal sales. Through hard work and determination Ben quickly progressed up the ranks through various management positions. Ben has traditionally specialised on portable fire extinguishers, however over the years and with our product diversification he has now become quite the generalist on all things FlameStop..
As the General Manager, Ben currently manages the sales & operations of 100 + team members spread throughout our 10 Distribution Centres located in Australia and New Zealand. He enjoys working hands-on with our various teams and never shies away from a challenge. When Ben is not working he enjoys spending time with his family on the Gold Coast, BBQing trying to master the perfect brisket (low and slow) and watching his beloved Brisbane Broncos football team.
Rob is the National Manager for the Fire Detection products portfolio at FlameStop. He has been in the fire industry for over 17 years, with 10 of those years being with FlameStop. Rob has played an instrumental role in the rapid growth and expansion of the company over the past decade, and continues to make improvements to take things to the next level.
Rob has been responsible for driving product strategy and direction and realises the importance of service and loyalty in the world of the fire industry. Each day he strives to attain an outstanding experience for all FlameStop customers, as well as being responsible for the vision, growth and development of his product portfolio.
Rob’s hobbies include participating in triathlons, playing squash and also spending time with family (in particular helping his two young daughters with their netball skills). Rob follows both football codes supporting the GWS Giants and Penrith Panthers.
After making the first series of FlameStop TV both Ben and Rob have agreed there is definitely no career for them in acting, and hoping to better their efforts for the next series of shows.
FlameStop Australia is pleased to be launching FlameStop TV, a new initiative showcasing the latest products and services we have to offer. Each show will run for 2 to 3 minutes and allows you to view the show no matter where you are.
This exciting new platform is presented by Ben Parkhill and Rob Glover who have a combined amount of 35 years’ experience in the fire industry. Both have a passion for all things fire and enjoy building long lasting relationships with customers.
FlameStop TV can be shown at your company toolbox meetings. Each show focuses on product applications and highlights key features you may or might not know about. The show also covers topics of interest and services offered at our national distribution warehouses.
A new show will be released every fortnight via email, our website and FlameStop Facebook page. We encourage your feedback and any suggestions you have are welcome.
