John Maguire FSIDip
Managing Director

I have almost two decades worth of experience in the Passive Fire Protection industry and have worked on many major projects around the country. My knowledge and expertise are second to none and I have managed projects from the value of £10,000 to £1,000,000. The experience I have gained in the industry have enabled me to acquire a vast amount of certification such as SMSTS, NVQ Level 2 in Passive Fire Protection and a Fire Stopping Inspection Diploma with the added mandatory training certification required to work on site. For 14 years, I have worked as an operative and supervisor for some major fire protection companies.


Working within the public sector has enabled me to develop excellent communication skills and whilst working as the managing director within the team it is my duty to promote health and safety to all staff involved with JM Passive Fire Protection. I also pride myself on keeping a close eye on all operatives and working side by side with managers, surveyors and supervisors on site, so they all know what is expected in producing high quality and correctly installed work.


In 2015 I then went on to work as a Contracts Manager, and whilst working in this role I managed many projects around the country where I built up an understanding that communication is key in getting all projects over the finish line. I also managed to build a very strong relationship with all clients, suppliers and contractors some of whom I keep in contact with today. Since starting the company in 2016, I have built up a very strong client base and continue to meet demands of new and old customers. The growth of the company has exceeded my expectations as well as all the repeat customers we have. We are a trustworthy and reliable business and I am ready to continue the expansion of the company with a great team behind me.
