We Join The FPA

We are members of a number of leading Fire & Security organisations and related bodies – including the NSI, FIA, BAFE, ECA, FSA & JIB. We also have strong relationships with manufacturers and institutions but we always consider the merits of joining additional organisations from time to time. That is why we are proud to now join The Fire Protection Association.

Becoming members of the FPA provides with access to additional training and resources amongst other things, which will further strengthen our teams knowledge.

What a great opportunity FIREX International has been to catch-up with a number of familiar faces and also see the latest technologies available in our industry.

We deployed different teams of PFS staff each day with 12 staff going in total across the three day. It was great to be back at the EXCEL for the first time since before the pandemic and it was the first FIREX for several new members of staff to the business who have joined in the past few years.

We Hold An Office Sports Day

Earlier this month we held our inaugural Office Sports Day with our Southend Office Team. The idea behind this was to promote healthy activity but also get a nice team bonding exercise going.

First of all it was fantastic to get everyone out of the office for a couple of hours of fun in our local park, I think everyone was pretty tired afterwards!

PFS Group Statement – Global Computer Chip Shortage

Please see below our statement with regards to the current global computer chip shortage;

You may have seen in news reports recently that there is currently a global shortage of computer chips. This shortage has affected many different industries and products including cars, mobile phones and kitchen products. It is also likely to have an impact on the Fire & Security industry as the situation progresses and we wanted to keep our customers abreast of developments.

At present we are seeing minimal effect from this situation to our supply chain, but it is unlikely our industry will avoid any impact as the year and situation progresses. This could potentially lead to longer lead times for products and in worse case lead to some items only being available on back order until the situation improves.
