A nationally recognised brand, Virginia Hayward started the company with her husband Geoff and together they developed an inimitable style for luxury hampers of the finest quality. Still based in Shaftesbury and a family business, son Sam Hayward now leads the highly successful business. The premises have grown with the business and today there are plans for further expansion to manage demand.
Wessex Fire & Security initially provided the intruder alarms for the business. However, over time, the design and demands for a fire and security solution has evolved. We are proud to constantly provide a robust high quality security solution for Virginia Hayward, one that grows with their business, to suit their needs.
Virginia Hayward’s busiest time of year is Christmas whereby the business volumes quadruple. This has an immediate impact on operational logistics and makes fire & security provision ever more important. The Wessex teams work seamlessly with Virginia Hayward to ensure there is no disruption to working practices allowing them to focus on their business whilst feeling safe and secure.
A detailed understanding of a clients’ business is key to maintaining a comprehensive fire and security solution. At Wessex work we closely with clients to ensure that the solution is constantly fit for purpose. We have an impressive track record in looking after commercial premises, particularly premises with a warehousing and office complex.
Russell Miles, Service Delivery Manager, Wessex Fire & Security said “We have grown up together really, our teams are all a big family. Our solid partnership provides the ease of not only being able to discuss things on a daily basis but also plan ahead with business evolution from the outset. Our teams work together with the client team continually to provide a first-class fire and security solution, all year round.”
Sam Hayward, Managing Director, Virginia Hayward, said “We have worked with Wessex for as long as I can remember. They have always provided us with an excellent service; knowing that our fire and security systems will protect us enables us to focus on delivering Christmas for our corporate customers.”
