The acquisition of Safeguard fits into the ASAP Group strategy to strengthen our position within the fire protection industry across the UK.
In acquiring Safeguard, the newly formed ASAP Fire Ltd can now service a much larger geographical area comfortably, thanks to the immediate increase of skilled team members who will all remain engaged with the company.
Increased customer demand for our fire protection services has led to significant investment in the ASAP Groups infrastructure over the past few years. This includes the recent opening of a Plymouth office.
Ben Waring former Managing Director of Safeguard will today take up a new role as Managing Director of ASAP Fire Ltd.
“Today has been the culmination of months of work to ensure Safeguard and ASAP Fire Ltd have a bright and sustainable future where customer service and quality come first. With a six-figure investment from the ASAP Group (ASAP Fire Ltd) has now ordered state-of-the-art mobile fire appliances to further expand our event fire services and dry riser testing facilities. I’m looking forward to building a great future within the support of the ASAP Group”.
