Staff at The Leaf Tea Shop and Bar in city centre Liverpool got to see for themselves S&S Northern’s commitment to customer service following a recent break-in at the tea shop and bar.
Leaf’s Managing Director, Natalie Haywood, says, “We realized we had been broken into during the night when we came to open up in the morning. This was made worse by the fact that during the break-in the key which turns the kitchen’s gas interlock safety system on and off had also been taken, so we were unable to get the kitchen working until we had a new key.
Local lad Lee Dempsey is an ex-pupil of Phillips High School in Whitefield and still lives and works in the area for his family run company, S&S Northern. In 1995, a gas detection system was installed in the school laboratory by S&S Northern, but they were in need of replacement this year due to changes in technology and the fact that teachers now want more control over gas availability, so Lee was sent along to assist with the new installation.
Lee, Sales Engineer at S&S Northern, was 15 years old when the first gas detection system was installed at the school and didnt think he would be returning to supply a new one nearly 15 years later, Schools are in need to update their gas systems, especially in kitchens where new standards such as BS6173 is concerned, which ensure they are safe to work in. Its really strange coming back to my old school to fit out the science laboratories, but great to see they are adhering to the most stringent safety standards so they can continue teaching safely.
