Chevron TM partners with RBLI to support armed forces veterans
Chevron Traffic Management has reached out to Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) and its social enterprise, Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company (BBMC), to support its ongoing requirement for road signage.
The traffic management specialist manufactures road signs at its in-house Sign Shop based in Retford but due to continued growth and expansion, demand can outstrip supply. BBMC has been retained to bridge the gap.
“As the largest independent traffic management provider in the UK, Chevron Traffic Management has an unending need for sign manufacture,” explains Lauren Barlow, Chevron TM, Northern Regional Director. “Our Sign Shop in Retford produces the signs for all our projects but in recent months as the company continues to expand, we have had to look at outsourcing our additional requirements. We are delighted to team up with BBMC to help us meet the needs of our clients.”
BBMC is a social enterprise owned by RBLI which provides employment to veterans from the Armed Forces or civilians with a physical or mental disability. Based in Kent, BBMC has the capability to manufacture a full range of permanent and temporary signage at their state-of-the-art facility.
“BBMC is an ideal company to support our sign manufacturing requirements,” adds Lauren. “Not only are they an experience and professional sign maker, they match our vision to support the local communities in which we operate. BBMC’s ethos is perfect for Chevron TM.”
RBLI provides housing and employment to veterans and people with disabilities at The Village in Kent. This facility has 300 homes, three dementia care units and a pharmacy. All profits from the BBMC are invested back into the village.
“Our partnership with RBLI and BBMC is a win-win situation for all parties,” continues Lauren. “Chevron TM is meeting our sign manufacture requirements with a professional sign maker which in turn is providing employment opportunities to veterans and people with disabilities and contributing to an ongoing plan to build more homes and support more people. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with BBMC and RBLI and look forward to a long-term partnership.”
