CDS’ Manchester office celebrates its first birthday this month – and looks back on the successes it has achieved over the past year.

The office was the first to open in the North of England and has since been joined by two more to cover the region as well as North Wales and the Scottish borders.

A satellite opened in Bangor, Gwynedd in the autumn, with a further office opening in Durham in the New Year.

The team has expanded under the management of regional director Derek Stacey – and the region now boasts a lucky 13 colleagues.

It has also gained an impressive portfolio of clients in the warehousing, student accommodation, university, education, local authority, fire and rescue service, nursing home and high-rise apartment sectors.

“We have been very successful since we opened just 12 months ago in the core sectors in which we specialise. It has been an amazing year and has absolutely flown by. The team are superb to work with and with the opening earlier this year of the Durham office we are planning yet more growth across the region.”

Derek has more than 30 years’ experience in the life safety and fire detection industry and the new manager of the Durham office, Brian Frampton, has more than two decades of expertise under his belt. Both are specialists in CDS’ main tech platform Honeywell Gent as well as Advanced, Kentec, Morley, Hochiki, Vesda and Airsense.
