Kaj Haines – Managing Director
Kaj’s experience working in the fire safety industry spans 17 years. He also has over 25 years of experience working in the electrical wholesale industry and has built four houses from scratch (including his own) which gained him valuable insight into the build process, understanding how important it is for tradespeople and contractors to work alongside each other efficiently and successfully. He was the front man for several other businesses before making the decision to set up on his own in 2010, during which time Amsco Fire (the Automatic Mist and Sprinkler Company) was formed.
Based in the Hastings Innovation Centre, his vision was to specialise in delivering the best fire suppression technology through innovation. This was a vision that enabled him to differentiate his business products and services from his competitors. After extensive research, Kaj chose to invest in the latest mist technology – it enables four fire-fighting methods at the same time with optimal water usage; it’s a system that’s highly efficient and effective. He eventually found the right manufacturing partner in Denmark, a producer of mist head technology called VID Firekill.
Now, with his choice of sprinkler and mist heads, Kaj was confident that Amsco would be able to offer an unrivalled product - the best in terms of quality and reliability. This, alongside his superior customer service and his ability to deliver on time and within budget, is what his reputation is founded on.
In 2016, Kaj moved premises to Rye to facilitate his plans to grow the business in a purpose-built industrial unit with more storage and offices. He has systematically grown his business year on year with a 100% customer satisfaction rating. Kaj has exciting plans for Amsco’s future, ones that will ensure its position as a leading specialist in the South of England.
Amsco engineers are fully trained to nationwide standards with Level 2 Sprinkler NVQ qualifications. They also attend a training update every six months to ensure they all have their PASMA / CSCS card. Additionally, they regularly attend designer courses.
The Amsco office team attend installer courses so they can work knowledgeably alongside the engineers and communicate effectively with customers.
