Smoke and carbon-monoxide alarm manufacturer Sprue Aegis says it supplies almost 90% of Britain’s fire brigades and is the main supplier of alarms to Tesco and B&Q. In April BRK Electronics, the American inventor of battery-powered smoke alarms, licensed the rights to its European operations to Sprue Aegis. The new operations open up opportunities in British construction and access to retailers in mainland Europe. Led by Graham Whitworth, the firm’s sales grew 62% a year, from £3.4m in 2006 to £14.4m in 2009.
