AW Technology has worked for over 25 years to establish itself as the leading provider of technology to the fire detection and alarm industries.

The worldwide significance and importance of AW Technology’s products can sometimes be forgotten during the day-to-day operations at its Leicestershire HQ. However, there’s no getting away from the fact that AW’s products continue to play a huge part in ensuring that fire and smoke detection safety standards are adhered to globally, and that the products installed in millions of homes across several continents will work correctly when they are called upon.

Chris Atkiss, Business Development Manager at AW Technology is tasked with implementing the business’ strategy for growth and development, whilst also ensuring the renowned AW quality is maintained in all of its products:

“We are very lucky to have an incredibly driven and grounded team here at AW Technology, who are all focused on ensuring that every single piece of equipment that leaves our warehouse meets the rigorous standards required.

“Whilst the global significance of our work isn’t always at the forefront of our minds, it’s humbling to realise that the products and equipment that we’re developing will be going on to make a lot of people across the globe safer. Without this technology, the testing of fire and smoke detection products would be a much more lengthy and less accurate process.

“It’s our people however, that really helps us stand apart from the competition and we’re firm believers that the expertise and skill at AW Technology HQ is the very best in the world.”

David Haigh, Commercial Director at AW Technology, has worked in the fire detection and alarm industry for nearly 30 years and joined the business soon after its foundation in 1990. David spoke about how AW Technology has a responsibility to keep innovating its technology to keep pace with today’s ever developing world:

“We’re acutely aware that standing still in this industry is simply not an option. We have to be on our toes and one step ahead of the game to ensure that our technology is innovative enough to provide the environment for accurate and safe testing of fire detection products.

“There’s a huge importance, and rightly so, across the world on fire safety and we are proud to play a part in ensuring the very best standards are upheld and maintained across the world. Of course, there’s always room for improvement and our world class team are constantly working on new ideas to help keep AW Technology at the forefront of fire detection technology.”
