Proof of commitment


Commenting on the news, the company’s managing director Robert Campbell told Fire Safety Matters: “It’s a tremendous feeling for the company to have been honoured in this way. To have now received such recognition three times is extremely special. Winning our first Queen’s Award was a great achievement. The second, and now the third such accolade proves our commitment to what we do and acknowledges the efforts of everyone involved in the business.”

Philip Bartlam, sales and marketing director at Detectortesters, added: “I would like to thank our customers and partners for the significant role they’ve played in this award. We are nothing without our customers and we’re so lucky to have a loyal, global customer base who believe in us and challenge us to deliver the tools they need to ensure that fire safety standards are continually developed and maintained.”
