With more than 30 years’ experience in fume and dust extraction, Flamefast Extraction Solutions (FXS) is able to design, supply and install a far-reaching range of wood waste, dust extraction and fume extraction products, spray booths/spray rooms and engineering solutions to suit a host of applications.

FXS provides a tailored solution for all extraction requirements, from initial consultation through to sign off. Its range of services includes commissioning, COSHH LEV testing, routine maintenance, and support packages.

Having traded for 48 years, FXS carries out everything from duct work & system design, planned maintenance contracts, and LEV and servicing, to reactive breakdown visits, LEV monitors manufacture and installation, as well as intelligent extraction-on-demand systems.

“During the last 18-months business has remained very buoyant across all divisions of Flamesfast,” comments group managing director, Steve Swinden, “and we are now capitalising on a significant opportunity presented within the industrial extraction sector. 

“In recent months we have seen significant growth and diversification through our intelligent and select employment strategy. We are also rebranding for the future of the business and building a team around the new management structure – driving the business forward with the full backing of the group.” 

FXS MD, Jane Warburton, adds:  “Working with select industry partners, we are extremely proud to have been selected as the UK installation and service partner for the Schuko brand.

“Schuko is a brand well known to our industrial dust extraction general manager, Andy Hives, and the trust between Andy and Schuko built up over several years made it an easy decision for Schuko to award FXS as their official partner for the UK.

“Adopting Smart Air to provide energy-efficient dust extraction systems was a no-brainer for Andy and Nick Fisher (head electrical engineer) at FXS,” Jane continues. “Our industry knowledge and new partnership with Smart Air will see the introduction of this technology into new industrial sectors, providing a fantastic opportunity to provide energy efficient dust extraction systems, futureproofing significant capital investment in dust extraction systems and equipment.

“Capitalising on the management’s industry experience, it is vital we become recognised for the quality of our workmanship and the products we supply. We need to showcase our people and products at every given opportunity. Booking a stand at W22 is instrumental in the future growth of FXS working within the woodworking industry.”

Regarding lead times and stock situations, Jane says: “Given the bespoke nature of the services we offer, lead times are difficult to quote, but we can tailor make the package around the customers needs. For breakdowns when timing is obviously critical, our team of engineers pride themselves on the ability to react as soon as the call comes in. 

“We are working with our supply chain to build a stockholding of all critical components in Warrington to prevent any lengthy down times for stricken customers. For capital equipment we can easily work within the supply times of the manufactures of woodworking equipment to ensure the smooth connection into new or existing dust extraction systems. Our engineers are based throughout the country to ensure the customer experience is one to remember and recommend.”

With a full roster of products and services, Jane points out that the company’s main strength is its people. “We have three offices within the UK – the head office in Warrington, sales office and warehouse in Sheffield, and we have an office in Paisley, Scotland.
