Fire safety company on the move

Business | Press | News

As a result of growth, after nearly 30 years at Church Lane, Fletton, Peterborough, Newflame has now moved its operating premises to Carlton House, 18 Willow Road, Yaxley.

Coming towards the end of a lease, the company decided to invest in the 5,500 sq ft new premises, which is four times the size of the previous head office.

In 1975, the Managing Director’s father Steve Best and John Landan, Fire Officers for East Anglia Health Authority started the company in a small way by providing fire extinguishers, as a favour to enquiries from fire training sessions. Over time the company has grown to a team of 15 staff providing fire safety advice and maintaining fire safety equipment.

The location of the new premises provides easy access for the company’s engineers who are mainly out on site with customers and for anyone wishing to visit or to use the in house training room. The move was staged in two phases; the relatively straight forward office move first and then the workshops a month later.

The move was also used as an opportunity to give the corporate identity an overhaul to make it more contemporary whilst retaining the heritage of the company by keeping and improving the Torch symbol.

Commenting on the move, Managing Director of Newflame, Steve Best said: “Looking back over the years it seems like yesterday when I was out on the road servicing fire equipment myself. Now fast forwarding to 2006, we are heading in a whole new direction; an organised team going from strength to strength. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved and I am particularly indebted to my father for making it all possible.”
