Innovative home safety products that save lives. Sprue was formed in 1998 with the ambition to build a world-class consumer products business focused on the safety products market. Our first product was a highly innovative smoke alarm that fitted into a standard ceiling mounted light fitting and was branded ‘FireAngel.’ Our initial product was stocked by B&Q and Tesco at an early stage and as our range has expanded, we have become the brand of choice for major UK retailers and the UK Fire & Rescue Services. The FireAngel brand is now the leading name in battery-powered smoke alarms in the UK and our ST-620 Thermoptek smoke alarm was the highest selling smoke alarm in the UK last year*. Adding to our safety products range with the development of a carbon monoxide (CO) detector, provided Sprue with another growing revenue stream. Safety legislation around smoke and carbon monoxide has significantly increased awareness of the dangers and smoke and CO which has driven sales. With our inclusion in the Sunday Times FastTrack 100 – the 100 fastest growing companies in the UK – for five consecutive years, Sprue has achieved substantial growth. With our ‘design in-house and outsource manufacturing’ model, our business is highly scalable and is well placed to continue to grow.
