Our story

FFE began life as Fire Fighting Enterprises in 1974. After building a solid business in fire detection for aviation, our range expanded to encompass the design, manufacture and supply of vibration switches to protect rotating plant and reciprocating machinery.

Our commitment to fire detection and prevention led to the development of the world’s most trusted smoke detection beam; Fireray®. With over half a million units installed world-wide, Fireray® has proved to be the favoured choice of many of the world’s leading smoke detection distributors and installers. Read more »

In 2013 Talentum® became part of the FFE family. Developed in response to the challenge faced by mill-owners where traditional smoke detectors could trigger false-alarms, Talentum® is the world’s fastest flame detector. Read more »

As for the future; we’re committed to continued excellence and innovation. We invest 8% of our revenue every year into product R&D to make sure we lead the field in fire and smoke detection, and hold regular company “sandpit sessions” to make sure our business practices innovate in line with our products.
