Having joined Armstrong Priestley on a temporary short-term contract back in 1992 it was obvious to the company that they could not let Barry go and he was offered a full time position as Intermediate Project Engineer responsible for the design of fire sprinkler systems. It was clear that Barry’s vast technical ability and knowledge would be a great asset to the Company and its future.
Appointed as a Director in 2009, Barry is now in overall charge of the Design Department and because of his knowledge he also oversees the running of the company’s Service Department.
Barry is passionate about sprinklers and the company, obvious to everyone by the way in which he has developed both the design office and helped develop the Service Department. All of which would not have been possible without the commitment and co-operation of the teams of people working with him.
Barry continues to take an active role in the design of systems and undertakes his own large design projects, some of which are for long standing clients who have remained loyal to the company for many years.
Barry is proud to be part of a Company who, through a lot of hard work and commitment shown by its employees, has maintained its outstanding reputation for quality and service throughout its 41 years of life.
