Safety Equipment for Engineering Primary Contractors

When Engineering Primary Contractors (EPCs) want the best for their customers, they know they can rely on Hughes. For 45 years, we have been providing them with Emergency Safety Showers and Decontamination Equipment. Through innovation and a commitment to quality and service, we consistently deliver the most effective solution – whatever the requirement and wherever the project.

Working with EPCs, we currently provide products, service and support in more than 160 countries. Our network of Distributors and Distribution Partners are managed from the UK Operations Center and backed by Hughes regional offices in Canada, USA, Germany and United Arab Emirates. These will be joined in the near future with a sales office in Asia.

We work in a wide variety of industries with particular experience of the oil, gas, and petrochemical sectors both in the UK and around the world. The products, service, support and specialist advice we provide is also available to many other industries through our approved registration with leading EPCs.

Compliance with leading International Standards, including ANSI Z 358.1 2014 and EN 15154 (1+2), is your guarantee of quality products and service. Our accreditation to Quality Assurance Standard ISO 9001:2009 is also a key component in our partnership approach to doing business with EPC customers.


Engineering Primary Contractors are global businesses and a supplier partnership must reflect this. At Hughes, we have developed a highly responsive sales and support network that complements Contractors wherever they are operating.

Often we can match the needs of a single EPC across multiple projects in different locations. This is made possible by having the widest choice of products from any manufacturer. With internationally recognized product registration and approval, we can provide an effective solution for an EPC in all territories.

For example, the Hughes range includes Showers and Ancillary Equipment specially developed for extreme weather conditions – from desert heat to the frozen Arctic.

We understand the importance of registering our products and our business with our Engineering Primary Contractor partners. We have a dedicated team in sales & marketing focused on Vendor Registration and Compliance and they provide a vital point of contact between ourselves and/or Contractor customers.
