The business has grown steadily over the years and have a loyal and steadfast customer base of householders, professional gardening and landscaping businesses, and others such as retirement homes and social enterprises.

About 12 months ago they moved to their current location at Beacon Business Park, from a smaller unit about a mile away. The business needed more space, to increase their showroom capacity and to meet demand for servicing and maintenance, more workshop and spares storage space.

Moving gave them an opportunity to consider how they protected the property, stocks and employees, so they approached Westcountry Fire Protection for guidance on how best to achieve this.

Made in Wales near Cwmbran, this is a complete family of products, highly reliable and all specifically designed to work together. The system has many features that provide cost benefits, such as the detectors have sounders built in them, as well as being configurable as smoke or heat, and combinations with sensitivity parameters.
