The companies have been shortlisted together in the ‘Fast Growth Business’ category and winners will be revealed at a high-profile awards evening on Thursday 22nd February at the MacDonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham.

“We are delighted to be shortlisted for a West Midlands Business of the Year award,” comments Sandy Damm, CEO of Bull Products and Cygnus. “It has been a great year for both Bull Products and Cygnus with fast-paced changes taking place and ground-breaking products being launched. Being shortlisted for these awards is recognition for the hard work and dedication our teams have put into developing and growing both companies. It’s a great way to finish the year and we look forward to the next stage of the awards process as well as the ceremony next year.”

A Fantastic Year

Bull Products launched Green Bull in July 2023, creating a dedicated division to grow its sustainable business. Through Green Bull, we are the first company which is fully equipped to revive products and supply them for re-use to our customers when it is safe and practical to do so. Fire protection equipment, including fire extinguishers and trolleys, is refurbished (reusing the majority of the original components) to produce a finished product that can be re-supplied to customers in full working condition and almost as good as new. The disposal of safety products to landfill when construction on site is completed occurs too frequently and is a waste of resources, not to mention the added effects of carbon emissions through their disposal. Refurbishing products makes ecological and financial sense. Find out more about Green Bull here.

Bull Products also launched its EN 54 certified, 100% wireless, SiteNet fire detection and alarm system this year. The SiteNet range is a robust, reliable and scalable wireless solution, comprising a control panel and six different fire call point, detection and alarm devices with multiple configurations and settings and first aid alert functionality. Featuring self-forming and self-healing wireless mesh protocol patented technology, SiteNet provides a cause-and-effect programming capability for timed and zone-controlled evacuations making it the perfect fire-safety solution for any temporary project.
