Royal Warrant for Kentec

Kentec Electronics Ltd has been granted the Royal Warrant of Appointment by Her Majesty The Queen in recognition of its status as an official supplier of Fire Detection Equipment to the Royal Household.

Ray King Managing Director of Kentec, commenting on this excellent news, said, ‘It is a supreme honour for Kentec to receive this prestigious accolade. Kentec has a commitment to offering customers excellent products, a comprehensive range and unrivalled, quality service, an ethos that is shared by everyone at the company’.

The granting of the Royal Warrant underscores Kentec’s continuing commitment to quality in product design, supply and support as the UK’s leading independent manufacturer of fire detection and alarm control panels. In-house design, manufacture and software development supported by a sustained programme of investment in state-of-the-art plant and machinery have been key contributors to Kentec’s commitment to offer customers products of true excellence, a world class comprehensive range and consistent quality of service.

Resounding success at Intersec

For the first time, Kentec and our sister company, VES LLC exhibited at Intersec in Dubai this year. We chose this as the regional launchpad for our VES UL-listed/ FM approved eLAN and eLITE systems solutions, Voice evacuation systems and eMATRIX mimics as well as promoting our extensive range of Kentec fire alarm control and indicating and extinguishing products.

The levels of interest shown greatly exceeded all our expectations and our stand was very active throughout the show.

Things are changing!

Some of you will be aware that Richard Hackett, who has been Kentec’s Sales Manager for over 20 years, has reached the age of retirement. Richard is well known to many of you and has greatly assisted in Kentec’s growth over the years. He will be actively handing over his responsibilities to his replacement over the next few months. We wish him a long and healthy retirement.

We are therefore pleased to announce that Mick Bull has joined Kentec as the new Business Development Manager for the South East. We shall be writing to our customers individually in the next few days and I am sure that Mick will make contact in the near future.

Mick brings with him 25 years experience in the electrical industry, 5 years experience in the Fire Industry and has successfully completed units 1,2 & 3 of the BFPSA Fire Detection and Alarm courses.
