B.I.G. YARNS has announced the attainment of a FM Global “Highly Protected Risk” Achievement Award (HPR Award) for its yarn production facility in Komen, Belgium.
The HPR Award is assigned by insurer FM Global, Beaulieu International Group’s insurance partner. A worldwide team of engineers focuses on providing assistance and protection of B.I.G.’s assets, helping the group to achieve a higher level of risk protection. The FM Global assessment considers implementation of measures to protect against fire, natural hazard, mechanical breakdown of machinery and also cyber risks. The local team worked diligently over the last five years to implement all the FM Global recommendations.
B.I.G. YARNS’ Komen production facility is the fifth plant at B.I.G. to receive HPR status, which is the highest level a plant can achieve for fire risk prevention and protection. The Yarns division of Beaulieu International Group achieved HPR status for its other European site in Comines, France, in 2017.
