He entered the industry a long time ago in 1987 and must know what he is doing by now! As the companies fire extinguisher section director, he keeps the engineers in check and out at work all day.

Di has worked for W J Fire since 2009 and is the company book keeper/office manager. She is also the credit controller so don’t cross her! Her main job is to keep all of us guys in line and runs the office with a steel rod. Di relaxes with Ebay and enjoys clothes shopping and a boot fetish and is rarely seen in the same outfit twice. She also likes walking her dogs at 5am to keep fit, really?
Konrad is our newest recruit and has fitted in to the team seamlessly. He has spent the last 10 years in the petrochemical industry and had a good understanding of fire extinguishers and health and safety prior to joining us. He has qualified with distinction and looks after our customers. His main interest is sitting on the side of a big pond with a fishing rod (luckily without a pointed hat!).
