Guardian Fire & Safety Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Guardian Fire & Safety are marking two decades of helping business owners and managers to meet their obligations and protect what matters most: life and livelihoods. 

As an award-winning pioneer in the field, Guardian Fire & Safety has established itself as a trusted leader in fire protection services.

The journey began in the early 2000s when Brendan Stamp was working in Dublin, managing Fire and Life Safety projects for some of the capital’s most prestigious multinational companies. In 2004 with the support of his sister, Jackie Carthy, and after securing a single customer (Dockrells Vegetable Producers, who remain to this day), Brendan took the giant leap. He establishes “Guardian Fire & Security” which was later rebranded as Guardian Fire & Safety to firmly focus on its key strengths.

The company’s growth was bolstered by the addition of Margaret Goldsmith and Brendan’s brother, James.

Guardian Fire & Safety: Committed to excellence

Living by their motto, “Where doing things right matters”, the team at Guardian Fire & Safety commits to excellence in every aspect of their service. The company prides itself on adhering to the highest standards, as evidenced by its IS33218 registration, Eco Merit certification and annual audits.

Guardian Fire & Safety boasts a team of highly qualified engineers, recognised among Ireland’s best for their proficiency and dedication. The company ensures that every product and system it employs and provides is rigorously tested by their experienced team.

Fire and life safety partner

This forward-thinking business has become the Fire & Life safety partner of choice to many sectors including Arts, Community & Heritage, Hospitality & Leisure, Retail & Commercial, Industrial, Education & Healthcare. It also provides specialist support, advice, and legislative guidance to architects, consultant engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, contractors and end users on current standards and best practice.

With a dedicated service manager, round-the-clock call-out service, and comprehensive training for clients, Guardian Fire & Safety remains at the forefront of customer service and fire safety education.

Today, Guardian boasts a dynamic team of 20 with its Support Office headquartered at Bosheen, New Ross and a satellite office in Dublin 12. 

Success due to people and relationships

Brendan credits the company’s success to its people, its commitment to fostering, and maintaining meaningful relationships together with a dedication to ongoing learning and development which allows the business to deliver sound and sustainable solutions with the right support at the right time. 

“Remaining true to our core values of Care, Trust and Professionalism has guided us through the tough times and there has been many” recalls Brendan, reflecting on the recession of 2009 and more recently the Covid -19 pandemic “but we have a 100% record of coming out the other side.” 

Dedication to fire safety

Margaret Goldsmith said, “We’re incredibly proud to celebrate 20 years of dedication to fire safety and we have the utmost appreciation and admiration for the fantastic work done by all the team here. This milestone is a testament to them and to the trust our clients place in us.”

“There’s no sign that we are slowing down anytime yet”  Brendan further commented, “We are excited for the future with further investment planned for our e-commerce division, EV technology and continuous improvement in 2024. Innovation in fire safety technology is also advancing rapidly and we look forward to bringing these technologies to our clients, ensuring their people and premises are protected for many years to come.”

Guardian Fire & Safety extends its heartfelt thanks to its loyal customers, dedicated team members and families, and the communities it serves for their continued support.
