The success story at Island based fire and safety company, Wight Fire & Security has continued in the past few months. Owing to an increase in business levels since the start of 2015 the company have recently taken on two new members of staff.
Paul Jenkins may be a familiar face to some of his new customers as he has worked in the safety and security industry on the island since 2002. With this wealth of experience Paul brings added expertise to the company. He specialises in the installation of intruder alarm systems, CCTV and door entry systems. As Wight Fire & Security are experiencing increased demand in these sectors Paul has become a very welcome addition to the team.
Whilst Paul adds experience to the company Wight Fire & Security’s other new recruit has started learning from scratch. When an opportunity arose for a trainee fire extinguisher technician at Wight Fire, Kerry Lock saw an opportunity to change career. After an intensive training period Kerry has now passed the IFEDA run course covering the Theory and Practise of Servicing Portable Fire Extinguishers with an excellent pass rate of 95%. Now fully trained Kerry is out servicing customers fire equipment and is looking forward to meeting many Wight Fire clients over the coming months and years.
Company Director Steve Winter commented that “the two new engineers are years apart in terms of experience but both have similarities in that they are very determined to succeed and both have a real ‘can do’ attitude, something that we value very highly at Wight Fire”.
