BHETA welcomes Pheonix Safe Company


Phoenix Safe Company, one of the oldest UK manufacturers of safes and security products has joined BHETA.

Phoenix can trace its history back to Liverpool in 1799 when it was known as the Richmond Safe Co Ltd and was supplying the maritime trade with iron banded or iron clad wooden strongboxes and seamen’s chests.  In order to reflect the increased emphasis on security products the company was renamed in 1850, the Withy Grove Stores and began to design and patent steel safes, strongboxes, fire safes and vaults many of which are still in use today.

The tradition of patented and innovative security continued in 1986, when Phoenix Safe Co was formed.  The aim was to design and manufacture advanced fire-resistant safes to protect the new wealth of data information being produced by computers and it was imperative to provide a modern safe for the protection of data media. This resulted in the first Phoenix data safe the 2000 series which protects data against fire for up to two hours at a temperature of 1090ºC, while at the same time maintaining a temperature inside the safe of only 39ºC. These days Phoenix have broadened its range to include gun cabinetsfiling cabinetskey boxeslaptop and tablet security.

Will Jones, Chief Operating Officer at BHETA said, “Phoenix is yet another iconic name and expert in its field.  It is fantastic to see the breadth of experience and expertise within BHETA and the amount of knowledge that all the individual members can bring.”
