A Sheffield-based firm which makes special fire and smoke protection curtains has boosted its management team with two new appointments.

BLE Smoke & Fire Curtains has welcomed Nigel Ward, aged 45, as managing director and Alan Todd, aged 51, as technical sales director.

Nigel’s career started when he worked for a Canadian car parts manufacturer before he went on to work for Applus IDIADA in its testing certification division.

He later became managing director of a Thule Plant in Rotherham, running its automotive division.

Alan spent 20 years as a director at Tata Steel but left to join BLE Smoke & Fire Curtains.

Nigel said he was “delighted” to be joining the team and vowed to help the firm to “develop and grow.”
