Vimpex vision becomes a reality

12 Oct 2018

‘The fire sector is undergoing rapid change whilst constantly evolving, which requires manufacturers to adapt and innovate,’ Vimpex Managing Director James Jones explained to guests at the unveiling of the company's ambitious new state-of-the-art manufacturing production facility at Great Wakering, Essex. He was was responding to an opening address by Sir David Amess MP, Chair of the All Parliamentary Group for Fire & Rescue.

This major development of the company’s capabilities is seen as an important and significant milestone in the Vimpex mission to become the world’s leading independent manufacturer and distributor of fire alarm sounders and associated evacuation and alarm system equipment and accessories.

Speaking to an impressive array of leading fire safety professionals including installers, distributors, OEM partners and members of the emergency services, James Jones said, ‘We are excited by the opportunities created by our nearly half million pound investment in transforming our business with adding this high-capacity manufacturing production facility, which will enable us to rapidly develop our markets for both Vimpex-produced and distributed products.’

Phenomenal capacity for growth.

‘We have created a phenomenal capacity for business growth,’ James told guests, ‘which will allow the company to innovate and increase its product ranges, markets and territories, and to significantly increase export activity in targeted markets in which we anticipate a doubling of sales revenues by 2025.’

Vimpex is a freshly emerging UK owned independent manufacturer of fire alarm & evacuation equipment and alarm system accessories. Thanks to recent grant funding from bodies such as South East Business Boost, Southend Best Growth Hub, Manufacturing Growth Programme and, most valuably, Essex Rivers LLG (LEADER), the business has transformed itself into a specialist electronics manufacturer with a platform for significant growth through increased efficiencies, development of its own products and IP along with an energetic push for growth through export.
