Fast Track 100

The growth of its customers has contributed to this company’s performance. Global Fire Systems does fire risk assessments and then designs, installs and maintains systems for customers that include Eton College and the Marriott hotels group. It was a beneficiary when Marriott acquired 38 Swallow hotels in 2000. By 2003, it was servicing all British Marriott sites and in 2004 Travelodge became a customer. Sales at the company, founded in 1999 by Ian Grantham and Stuart Beeley, have risen 65% a year from an annualised £842,000 in 2001 to £3.8m in 2004. It has recently been awarded the contract to design and install cooker fire suppression systems in the kitchens at the new Wembley stadium.
