Erik Hudson, Managing Director at Pyro Fire said: “We are thrilled to welcome Cat and Lorraine to the team at such a crucial time for the business, accelerating our plans for further growth. Over the pandemic, we have seen a significant increase in demand for our services at a time when the country’s review of building safety is paramount. There has been major reform for fire safety with the introduction of the new ‘Fire Safety Act 2021’, which is currently being pushed through parliament.  

“As consultants, Pyro Fire continue to strive for improvements in the industry and remain strictly independent to report the issues we encounter at our clients’ buildings without the motivation to sell any products. We believe this is our USP and how we have continued to build trust with our clients, and build our business nationally.

“We believe it is vital to continue educating businesses and landlords around the country on fire safety compliance, as there is much more to fire safety consultancy than ticking a box. The only way buildings are going to be brought up to a safe standard for occupants, is by keeping things simple and educating landlords and property managers on the reasons behind fire safety compliance. That is what we have always done, and will continue to do.

“We are always on the lookout for competent and professional fire safety consultants to join our team and help us service our amazing clients.”
