Surge in demand for surge protection sees boost for Darlington business
Stone Technical Services (STS) has seen a 20% rise in business in its lightning protection department, compared to the same time last year.
STS Lightning Protection has secured around half a million pounds worth of work around the country, since the start of the year- as it marks its 20th anniversary.
The company has been installing surge protection for Hastings Council and Gateshead Council to help protect their data and cloud storage.
In addition, STS has designed and installed new lightning protection systems at The Belvedere Hotel in Holland Park, Derwentside Apartments in Newcastle and St Michael’s Church in Tilehurst.
STS this year celebrates its 20th anniversary. Darlington brothers, Dave and Grahame Stone, established Stone Technical Services in 1998 which is based on Kellaw Road in Darlington with offices London and Edinburgh.
The company has also recently completed projects with Handpicked Hotels, Nostell Priory, Jarrow Town Hall, Sunderland Empire, County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Hall.
MD of STS, Dave Stone, said: “STS Lightning Protection has seen a massive uptake in its services this year as organisations becoming more aware of how important it can be, not only for protecting people and buildings but also company data.
“We work on a wide variety of installations on a range of very different buildings from modern sites to historic locations, often using a mix of materials to suit specific needs.”
