A Quick History

Fal Fire first started trading 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.

The business and all the staff were acquired by Jan Blackler in 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 throughout Cornwall including Pendennis Shipyard, Coastline Housing and Falmouth Oil, as well as hundreds of small businesses spread across the county.
