About Ventro: We were founded in 2013 and have since gone from strength to strength 

Founded in 2013, the Ventro Group is one of the leading passive fire safety companies in the UK. We are UK-wide providers of fire doors, fire dampers, fire rated cladding, fire sprinklers and fire stopping products, making us the perfect partner for any organisation in need of fire protection services. 

Our vision is to become the ‘go-to fire safety specialists that professionals cannot do without’. Alongside providing you with fire protection services and products, we follow a three Step Approach, Healthcheck, Installation, and Maintenance. These services are essential aspects of buildings today that seems to get missed or avoided because of cost, or because of people not really understanding compliance or the consequences of not having passive fire safety measures installed, but that is why we are here, to help businesses understand the importance of having fire safety, and ultimately, to help people in understanding the law. 

We are a rapidly growing company with our head office based in Plymouth Devon as well as our other offices which are located in Gillingham and Nottingham.

Our story

Ventro was founded in November 2013 by Harvey and Ross Melvin, both of whom are only in their early-mid 20’s. Previous to this, the brothers started out by selling Fire Doors for years just from a shed up the back of a field owned by the boys' uncle.

The Melvin brothers both had a vision that has just grown and grown into the success it is today. Starting off with the installation of fire doors, the company is now one of the leading Passive Fire Safety Consultants in the UK. 

Already the company has clients on a nationwide scale including some of the biggest names in housing, hospitality, and healthcare industries. 

Working for the company, they started off with the two brothers alongside their mum and dad who helped with accounts and operations. They now have around 18 members of staff which include a project management apprentice from Plymouth City College, in a small office based up at Faraday Mill Trade Park.

In order to celebrate the company’s success, the team will be moving into a larger business premises. This information is undisclosed, so I can’t go into details as of yet, but I can say that it will be able to comfortably accommodate the vastly expanding team.

Meet the Team

As we are such a personable company, we like to give people a face to the name. We have doubled in size within the last year and are continuing to grow year on year.

We have a fantastic team of Passive Fire Consultants, Project Managers or work all over the UK and are always on the road meeting our clients. We have our very own Estimators and Accountancy team, as well as our own in-house Marketing and Design department. 

As well as our office team, we wouldn't be able to function without our on-site team which includes accredited and fully certified passive fire engineers. They have probably lost count of the number of fire doors they have fitted.
