20 Years of Service to the Fire Industry

We are very proud to have completed, and to be celebrating our 20th year in the Fire Alarm and Detection industry. Over the last 20 years, Kentec has developed into one of the World leaders in the control panel manufacturing sector. Our success can be attributed to our ever growing list of partners, from our customers, key suppliers right through to the loyal and dedicated service companies that have supported Kentec during our first 20 years. Another key factor in our success has been the dedication and commitment of our staff which, over the years, has been instrumental in driving the business forward throughout our 20 years. This was officially recognised in 2004 when we were awarded the prestigious Investor in People award.
We look forward with great enthusiasm to the next 20 years and all the challenges that will undoubtedly come our way.

Finally, we would like to take the opportunity to thank again, all our customers, suppliers and staff past and present who have helped make Kentec the success it is today.

Christmas Shutdown

As another busy year comes to a close, we would like to advise our customers that we will be shutting down over the Christmas period, for a well earned rest. We will be closing on the 22nd of December 2005, but will be back in on the 3rd of January 2006, and raring to go.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their business over the past year, and wish everyone a happy Christmas and New Year.
