Sherp UK has appointed Venari Group as its converter and distributor for the UK fire, rescue and emergency services.
With an increase in wildland firefighting becoming an almost guaranteed burden on UK fire and rescue service in recent years, Sherp have formed a blueprint to translate the famous all-terrain vehicle with Venari, adding in essential firefighting media and capability.
Sherp has been hailed in recent years as the all-terrain vehicle of choice for the United Nations (UN) in supplying essential food and resources throughout Africa during the pandemic.
Famed for its ability to navigate through and over any obstacle, including its completely amphibious capability, the Sherp truly is a no-nonsense machine guaranteeing safe transport to and from wildland firefighting situations.
Sherp UK Director, Yasya Atkey, commented on the new partnership: “Throughout the past 12 months we have searched for the right partner to service the UK fire and rescue services as efficiently as possible. In Venari, we’ve got the most passionate, skilled and experienced team to ensure our Sherp is not only capable of travelling to and from any wildland incident, but also to make it an effective firefighting tool once it arrives at scene.”
Venari Firefighting sales manager, John Purdy, added: “After converting countless wildland vehicle over the past 12-months, we wanted to offer something with truly unrivalled capability for our customers. After rigorous testing, we found there was literally nothing it couldn’t achieve from an all-terrain vehicle perspective. Importantly, from an environmental perspective, our beautiful wildland is also protected from damage with the tyre surface area coverage.
“This machine is nothing less than mind-blowing and we couldn’t be more excited to represent it whilst making it fire-ready with our fantastic team.”
