Northern Expansion

Big Announcement – We’re Expanding Our Service Nationwide

FDS Group, a leading specialist in the design, installation and maintenance of smoke ventilation systems is proud to announce it’s expanding its services nationwide. This will allow the company to better service vastly developing regions, particularly in the North of England and the Midlands, with specialist services.

In the wake of the expansion, there have been two new key appointments to increase the company’s service capabilities. Michael Starr and Paul Hunt have both joined FDS Group as Business Development Managers.

Michael will primarily be focusing on growing the customer base outside of London and the South-East, expanding into the Midlands, the North of England and Wales. Paul will be responsible for developing new business in the Southern and Eastern counties, with interest in the Residential and Commercial sectors.

The decision to expand nationwide has coincided with optimism from leading developers who say they are set to invest more, particularly in the North of England by 2021, driven by the Norther Powerhouse initiative.

Feedback suggests that 65% of developers plan to increase their investment activity in the North substantially over the next two years with 57% regarding the North East as having the best opportunity (Property Wire, 2019).

With the substantial increase in development, comes the greater need for a fire safety specialist to not only service these regions but to ensure buildings are safe and compliant.

Nick Waterfield, Managing Director had the following to say about the recent expansion:

“These are really exciting times at FDS Group and we are determined to make a success of the expansion. We are confident that our emphasis on Customer Service will provide our new clients with a refreshing new option in the rest of the country and we’ll be working hard to provide a quality service to all of our regions.”

We’re looking forward to getting to know our new nationwide based customers and providing them with the same service, commitment and expertise that our current customers have become accustomed to.
