Commenting on the deal, Fyr Fyter’s director Brian Hogg said: “The success that we have achieved with Fyr Fyter would not have been possible without the support of our valued customers and staff.  Because of this, we have been keen at every step of the sale process to understand PHS’s approach to doing business.  I am pleased to say that the response has been positive and we are confident that our customers and staff will experience a better standard of service than ever before as a result of this move. We are looking forward to working with PHS Compliance to ensure a smooth and seamless integration of the business.”

Fyr Fyter is CHAS accredited, BS EN ISO 9001:2008, certified by BSI, BAFE registered (SP101 and ST104) and is a full member of the FIA (Fire Industry Association).  As part of PHS Compliance, Fyr Fyter will further develop the company’s fire safety compliance provision, with specific services that include provision for fire prevention, maintenance, testing, containment, means of escape, fire detection and warning.

Paul Caddick, managing director of PHS Compliance explained, "Fyr Fyter has been built on a commitment to customer care and industry-leading approaches to compliance with the Fire Safety Order and other safety legislation.  This very much echoes our own standards of safety excellence and the group’s ethos of the best possible customer service. With the company comes unrivalled years of specialist expertise and knowledge, plus innovative mobile workshops that can provide the logistics for rapid response to support customers, wherever they may be in the UK.  This will be an asset to all PHS clients and we are delighted to add this to our complete compliance provision."
