We were sad to hear the tragic news of the sudden passing of Barry Bartholomew on the 20th October. Barry had worked in our Sales department in different capacities over his long length of service for both Britannia Fire Ltd and UK Fire. More recently he had been managing our International Sales promoting the name of Britannia Fire and the P50 fire extinguisher globally.
Barry was well liked and respected by all that worked with him. His was defined by his natural warmth and gregariousness, but not afraid to speak his mind and cut to the truth of a matter. His knowledge of the industry was second to none and his kindness and directness will be missed by not only his colleagues at Britannia Fire Ltd but by all that met and dealt with him in a career spanning three decades.
Our thoughts are with Dot and family as they cope with their loss.
