Background

For over 40 years Armstrong Priestley has established itself as one of the UK’s leading fire protection contractors focusing on the design and quality installation of automatic Fire Sprinklers, Water Mist, Foam, Gaseous Fire Extinguishing systems as well as Hydrants, Hose Reels, Wet and Dry Risers and have designed and installed tailor made fire protection solutions for both public and private sector clients.

The Company’s philosophy remains the same, to utilise high quality components, in designs tailored to a client’s specific requirements with access to current developments in fire engineering technology.

Established in Leeds in 1976, Armstrong Priestley has developed an unrivalled reputation within all business sectors both commercial and private, as a dependable contractor who can be trusted. The company’s first client was in Bradford and now 40 years later they and many others are still loyal clients who have come to rely on us as their first choice supplier.

Peter Armstrong, Managing Director and founder, is a strong advocate of the benefits that installing automatic fixed fire protection systems bring in the protection of Life, Property and the Environment.

“For over 130 years fire sprinkler systems have been successfully controlling fires and have been installed as a means of protecting property. But you have got to realise that not only does it successfully do that but it also protects life as well” Peter Armstrong

Our clients include such diverse companies as Boeing, Next, McCain Foods, Fisher Clinical, Exel/DHL, Scottish Courage, United Biscuits, Scottish Power, several RAF establishments, Kerry Foods, Crown Packaging, Peglar Yorkshire Fittings, J. Sainsbury, BUPA and a large number of Education Authorities where we have protected over 350 schools. 

Our mix of work has been interesting and varied and we have protected listed buildings, such as Cuthbert Broderick’s famous Leeds Corn Exchange and Corgarf Castle, Scotland and several shopping centres such as The Core in Leeds and Monument Mall in Newcastle upon Tyne where we have used our expertise to design unobtrusive yet life-saving systems which harmonise with both classic design and modernistic architecture.
