We are located in Penryn and have been protecting lives and property through Cornwall, with our services and expertise for over 25 years. We are a well-organised locally based Cornish business that cares about our customers and the work that we do. All our operational staff are appropriately trained and qualified for the tasks they are expected to carry out. We use approved third party training organisations for this purpose.
A Quick History
Fal Fire first started trading out of a property in Falmouth as a one man band in 1987. It was joined shortly afterwards by Mark Richardson, now CEO, and as it grew, the whole organisation became incorporated and relocated to its present location on Kernick Industrial Estate. The original entrepreneur who started the business in now a Salvation Army pastor in Scotland.
The business and all the staff were acquired by Jan Blackler on 2008, who incorporated it as a limited company and relocated it to its present position in Kernick Industrial Estate, Penryn.
The staff have now grown to eleven in number and we have invested heavily in training and accreditation and have five vans on the road. We serve a wide variety of customers including Pendennis Shipyard, Coastline Housing and Falmouth Oil, as well as hundreds of small businesses spread across the county.
A Culture of Localism with World-Class Credentials
The company has a fundamental culture of localism: keeping the circle of demand and supply between local consumers and local suppliers is vital to keeping money and jobs within the community. Fal Fire promotes the opportunity to purchase better, locally-supplied goods and services, at better prices with stronger long-term relationships, so the service has to be not just as good, but better in every way. To this end, in order to compete on an equal footing with the larger corporations, and to demonstrate a total commitment to quality, the company has invested heavily in gaining the coveted BAFE SP203 Modular Scheme for Fire Alarms, NICEIC approval and SafeContractor Health and Safety accreditation.
Our Social Responsibilities
We believe that as a business, we have a social obligation to trade to the highest possible moral and ethical standards. That means being efficient, reliable and well and properly run, so as to generate profits which we can use to support and enhance the well-being of all our stakeholders, including our customers and our community.
We take this responsibility very seriously. We must be able to pay our employees fairly and make sure they are well resourced, trained and informed so as to keep them safe and healthy and able to provide the best service.
