MRS Training & Rescue – the new name for Mines Rescue Service

MRS Training & Rescue - new name, new logo but still the same great company you've known for over 100 years.

For over 100 years, Mines Rescue Service has developed its specialist skills, experience and knowledge gained from working in difficult and potentially dangerous environments, to affect the rescue and escape of mine workers from underground.

However, given the gradual decline of the coal mines over many years, culminating in the closure of the last deep coal mine in December last year, MRS have been able to expand and diversify to meet the needs of today’s health and safety market. The company has been able to secure long term success by leveraging its expertise, and has branched out from underground mining into providing a comprehensive range of health and safety related products, training and services to a wide range of industries, including nuclear, aerospace, manufacturing and utilities.

As part of this transition, the company has launched a new name and logo - MRS Training & Rescue  - which not only better identifies who they are, it also retains their heritage through the “MRS” and the joined hands that feature in their current logo. They have also introduced a new strapline ‘Safe in our hands’ to help communicate further what they offer – and to link directly to the logo itself. The company’s website has also moved to www.mrstrainingandrescue.com and more exciting changes are planned during the year.

These include the opening of a new training facility in London this month, along with their Kellingley operation relocating to a new training centre at Knottingley in May, with improved facilities. This takes their total number of training facilities to seven across the UK.

In addition, the company has appointed a new CEO, Stuart Hoult, who joined in February when Dr Barrie Jones, the previous CEO retired. MRS Training & Rescue also have appointed Julie Wilson as their Marketing Manager, to lead and develop all marketing activity.

The new name is effective immediately, and will be implemented across the company's products and services throughout the calendar year 2016.
