About Us

JoBird is an internationally recognised leader in the design and manufacture of lifesaving and fire safety equipment storage.

Since its establishment in 1986, JoBird has developed its products to meet the demands of a range of industries and environments. Our Firebird GRP cabinets and Toughstore cabinets are used by clients around the world, including multinational companies such as ADNOC, BP, Equinor, Petrobras, Petronas, Premier oil, Shell, Exxon Mobil, Orsted, Tennet, SSE and Total.

Uniquely among UK manufacturers, we have been awarded Lloyd’s Register Type Test Approval for many of our lifesaving and fire safety storage solutions. This, together with our ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications, serves as an independent endorsement of the quality of our products. Longevity is one way we help sustainability so once a cabinet is installed it is likely to last the length of the project. The company is working hard to develop more sustainable materials and processes. For example, many of the cabinet backs are reinforced using PET which is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles. More advanced manufacturing techniques are helping to reduce waste during the production processes.

The high standard of our equipment cabinets is supported by our expertise. We have specialist distributors around the world who advise you on the best product for your needs – saving you time and trouble.
